    i broke my samsung ms25 dvd rom drive and now it wont work with my xbox, plus it cant be seen on my PC, so i cant get the key. i want to buy another dvd rom drive but i dont have a key to marry the new drive. and no it is not flashed so i dont have a backup anywhere. the only firmware i have of it is on it, and i cant access it. i broke the place where u connect the other cable to the 360 to power it (not the SATA). so since i cant power it, is there anyway i could power it differently or marry a new drive to my 360? plzz help.
    thanks

    The only way to get the key is from the drive. It sounds like that could be repaired by the right person. How did you break it anyway?

    Are pins all still intact and attached? Maybe the could be straighted out. Otherwise the whole thing and can desoldered and reattached. Anyway, now you know never jam or shoved delicate computer parts. They aren't made to be manhandled.
