    Hey guys i need some help replacing my dvd drive, its a benq i just wanna replace it with anoher benq but dont want to have to solder anything (usually ends up with me fuckin something up worse) i looked into using jungle flasher to do it and im pretty sure i could do it, my real question here is how I would connect the Dvd drive to my laptop (no desktop available), I found a Usb to Sata port and Usb to Sata cord on ebay, would either of these work for me?

    well i bough my xbox off my girlffriends brother, the drive jams a bit and he sawed off the feet it has (where the screws go through), also it wont open at all when i stand it vertically, I dont understand why they didnt make it easier to swap drives -_-

    that looks pretty damn useful but i would have to pay 60$ for that device and the actual drive will cost me 30$, I dont have to much cash im looking for something cheap... if i cant find anything i will definitely take that into consideration though

    If you don't wanna buy an X360 USB Pro, then your best best is swapping the two drive's PCB boards. Just pay someone 10 bucks to do it.
