    Look for some pics online...or just open the xbox...Thompson will read all original disc and some cd-r if you know how to burn them in a special way.Samsung is more compatible with cd-r media and so is the philips.

    The Samsung drive has 2 round holes either side of the main cut out in the tray. The Philips cut out is shaped like a light bulb (without the 2 holes either side) and the Thomson cutout is shaped like a candle (without the 2 holes either side).

    Can you install any drive into a version 1.0 xbox? I am looking for a new dvd drive, one that can read cd-rw and dvd-rw easliy. Any input on what to buy would be helpful.

    You can but it's not just as easy as plugging it in. xbox-scene.com will have all the info. Did the laser tweak not work for you pong ?

    I switched my Thompson with a Samsung and the only thing i had to do was plug them in. I even left the power cable attached to each drive when i switched them. Both boxes still work perfectly.

    Bigdan, how well does the new samsung you have read dvd-rw and cd-rw? Modmaster, i tried to tweak it, but i have to resolder the red and blue wires because they fell out...i think im just going to sell the thompson and buy a better one.
