    I'm looking for a new dvd drive to buy for my pc so that it's compatible with the payload tool. Which drive should I go for in the link below:

    I was thinking of going for the HP DVD1260i which is reported as compatible. But there are three versions of it available. Which one should I go for:

    Actually, that's the same version. The first is in original packaging, the second is in an OEM bundle (meaning it was produced to be sold with a computer, it doesn't have the original packaging) and the third one is a bundle of five OEM burners.

    Does my PC hardware need any special requirements so that this DVD drive (I'm going for the first one) would work? So now all I need is the DVD drive and the payload too, right? Thanks.

    Patience.People do go to work you know! If you buy the drive you have stated then all you need is the payload tool.Also this drive is cross flashable with burnermax but what would be the point if it works with the payload tool.Make sure you patch through xbgx360 use verbatim 003's or 001's and burn with imgburn.Enjoy

    There are reported instances where the company delivers the HP 1260 DVD drive instead of the 1260i drive. Would it make any difference?

    Also, are there various revision models of this drive?

    One last question please, it doesn't matter if it's a revision A, B or Y model any more? Just say the word and I'll buy it.

    No, it isn't, that's what the payload tool is for.
