ok, first off thats a DVD-ROM not a harddrive ;)


the samsung 616t when modded make it into the xbox version of the drive and when that is done, the drive won't read at 16x since the xbox firmware limits the speed to x4 as te normal xbox version of the dvd-rom.


its a ripoff in my eyes and i think you're better off getting a normal samsung or phillips xbox dvd-rom.


thought i'd also tell you that most samsungs have a hard time reading +R media so if thats a prob to you, i suggest the phillips or a brand new thomson

is there anything wrong with your drive now?

or are you just trying to sidestep a mod with this? if that is the case no it won't work.

if your drive is bad do as Prican said and get a replacement that was made for the xbox.

i highly doubt that dvd-rom can read retail discs as i only know 2 dvd-roms that can after a firmware flash (Samsung 616t and Hitachi-LG GDR-8163b)


older Thomson dvd-roms (not a hard drive 1InuYasha :afro: ) are well known for probs which is why most ppl would move on to getting a phillips or samsung since those last longer.
