    I believe the drive should work as long as key is matched.

    If you don't know how to, or don't want to dump/flash the drives, you can simply swap the PCB boards of the drives.

    I am fairly new to this so nobody chop my head off if I am wrong, but my common sense tells me that it you "back-up" games that are REGION FREE it shouldn't matter. Correct me if I am wrong.

    LOL,yes it matters. You cannot simply throw a drive into a 360. It will be a DVD player.

    But if you get the key and everything correct it doesn't matter if the drives are from Hong Kong.
