ok, i am new to swapping things out with the xbox360 console, i have a good computer background and electronics knowledge. here is what i got.. xbox360 pro (60 gig model with hdmi) the dvd drive is bad.. wont read discs or spin them, but it comes on still and will open from the dashboard. I bought a new hitachi-lg dvd drive rom ver. 0059DJ My original is a Lite-on model number. DG-16D2S -- I was reading all over the internet how i have to dump the rom off the original and flash it to the new one in order for it to play. If anyone could please give me directions/info to get this done that would be greatly appreciated. sorry if this is in another thread but i couldnt find it anywhere.. Thanks in advance I do have a pc with sata ports on motherboard running windows 7 ultimate if that helps anyone with bringing me a result faster.
