I am in need of the proper jumpers and pin out of the proprietary Xbox cable.
It is possible. The only way that would work would be to use an unlocking tool like these. But even then, it only works for a limited amount of drive types. Though from what I have read, the xbox uses a standard drive.

The original xbox had some sort of encryption, and I think the drives had a special chip to handle this. I don't think you can use a normal DVD-ROM in an xbox, or at least if you expect it to play games on encrypted discs.
just buy a regular DVD drive?
I am not sure can you post the picture of the drive and I can try to help.
