Replace Dvd Drive With Pc Drive

Recommended Posts

Possible with a very limited number of PC DVD models.

Samsung SD-616T or F (not E versions).  They require hardware modifications - eject tray motor direction reversal - and wiring to the Xbox's power and control (all yellow) cable and flashing the SDG-605B firmware to them.  Then, the Xbox case has to be modified to make it fit.

Similar changes for LG GDR-8163B or GDR-8164B. You don't have to do the eject tray motor direction reversal on these PC DVD drives - easy peasy. Ha!

      so im working with an old 2.6 modded OG xbox, this one has some very good history and means alot to me, and was given to me by the owner of "gamer transit authority", initially we thought this wasnt the "gamer bus unit" but after cracking it open and checking some things ..IT IS!!!

      anyway im trying to breath life back into the unit it has some startup issues that ive seemingly mostly resolved, im trying to clone and backup the drive so i can toss a 2tb unit in and be done for life with it

      so heres the issue..im getting "bad block sector on hda(master) from logical block 316 though 338 on drive E:

      everything else clones over just fine, and i get a error 13 on bootup
      yes im on the 80 wire
      yes ive tryed multiple drives both IDE and sata
      yes ive googled for weeks

      my best guess is that due to the logical block issues pointing at a corruption of the original drive that i need to "replace" some of E:drives contents, what im looking for is any information on how to do that WITHOUT wiping out the history thats in this box, id like to just "patch" what i can....im just not sure of the best way to do it....im leaning tward FTP cloning out E drive if thats even possible since the new drive wont boot...
       
      looking for any help possible, even if it means building the new drive from scratch...tho i consider that a "last resort"

      Quick question I am finding difficult to search online.
      Like most, I mainly play games directly from the hard drive, but do occasionally like to play my games on disc. I am wondering if there is an application out there that gives you the option of disabling the dvd drive on startup?
      I want to keep my dvd drive alive for as long as possible, and I cringe everytime I boot the Xbox and the laser searches for a disc that isn't there. It seems I am just degrading the lifetime of the drive that way. If I can disable the drive when I am not using it, I bet I would be able to squeeze more life out of it.
      Thanks!
