    u can't replace the drive unless you dump your new drives firmware and get the key. and you can't do that with a benq.

    Yes I have done some research on the net for some time now and found that it is not moddable but the lot 0728 is suppost to be the one with the new chip inside so that the rrod dosent happen

    yes it's possible to get the key from the benq. so you can put in a samsung or hitachi drive, and play modded games

    but through an external programmer and desoldering TSOP

    in a while ixtreme for benq should arrive.

    change the subject a bit now

    the easiest way to back you games up as far as i know is to buy one of thease drives for you pc

    http://www.microwarehouse.co.uk/catalogue/item/SAMDVD40

    then mod it with the keron firmware is this true and is that the drive everone is on about

    The Firmware can be downloaded from xbins its a bit of a hassle but you will also be able to download a lot more tools and firmware for the 360 just follow this tutorial

    Happy Modding :)
