    This is actually easier to do than the ps2 modchips... All you do is determing which drive your 360 has and follow one of the following tutorials.
    The hitachi flash/backup/burn tutorial which is stickied to the top of the forum. And the M28/VIA 6241 guide I made which isn't sticked but shouldn't be further back than page 2.

    to clear it up, the drive you are looking at on ebay, is flashed with the standard MS firmware, so it wont play burned games, and either way you would have to flash it with the firmware from your xbox motherboard because it hold the "key" to you using a dvd drive

    you need a way to plug the sata cable into your computer, you need a sata port, if you have a via chipset your pretty much covered as it can flash both samsung and hitachi drives, if you dont have on-board sata you need to get a sata card for your samsung drive, all i know is that it is some model of the via chipset but im not sure exactly what model it is
