Hello, yes I'm a noob to this forum, but I come in peace, I hope you do as well. I seek advice and some help with a decision I want to make. I have searched for this answers, but I haven't found any help. My first question is regarding the firmware hack that allows you to play copied or burned games on the 360 console. I have 2 360's. One is an Elite console, and the other is Xenon console. My problem is this: Q: Can I perform the firmware hack on my elite console? or do I need to use the Xenon console? This question seems simple enough, but my Xenon console, based on my research here, needs a new DVD drive, because the console won't load games. So my second question is: Q: If I need to use the older machine to perform the firmware hack, can I switch out the DVD drive with a true replacement, a Samsung for a Samsung, with out having to flash the drive? Your help is much appreciated.
