Can anyone give me a complete, COMPLETE, tutorial on how to replace a DVD drive for the xbox 360? Answered

I Have a 360 that works perfectly fine except for the DVD drive. The broken drive is a Hitachi model: GDR-3120L. I want to replace it with the same type of drive, not any other model. I just want to know what to do to get a new drive to work with my 360. i already have the thing opened and ready to do whatever. by the way i have a laptop, so if i need to flash something or whatever, i need to know how to do that too. thanks. any help is really appreciated.?


Nothing there was any use, you hadn't seen it before, you can't see it now? "Nope" is a bit ambiguous. L

There was nothing there of any help. BUUUUT i did figure out how to do it. Basically you just remove the old drive, take out it's circuit board, get the new drive and switch the circuit boards. It's a cheaper, easier, and more legal way of doing it. you can't get banned from xbox live.

Oh right. You replaced the control-board on the drive? I understand what your problem was now, getting it to work was pretty good going. L
