    I just bought a 360 and I am wondering if anyone can tell me what type of drive I have? Gamestop told me once I open it I can't take it back. When I go to www.360drives.com I notice that there are both the Hitachi drives as well as the Samsung drives being made with my exact lot number and team number. The manufacture date is August 10, 2006. Also is there anyway to tell which firmware it came with?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    You're right I meant the box that it came in not the 360 itself.

    Hey guys I opened the box very carefully last night so if I had to take it back I could and it was a Samsung drive so I am very happy. My next question is what firmware comes with the Samsung drives? Is it MS25 and MS28 or are there others as well.

    By the way thanks to all that have tried helping me I really appreciate it.

    No I'm sorry I meant I removed the sticker on the box that it comes in not the 360 itself.
