Price for change drive and upgrade version

Post  cykong on Fri Jun 08, 2012 1:01 pm

Hi guys,

I am a newbie here. I have a old version xbox 360 (the fat one). I went to shop before, trying to upgrade my console to latest version, but the guy at the shop told me that i need to change my DVD drive. Just want to check with you all what is the standard price of changing a DVD drive and upgrade to new version in malaysia? Also, i heard that when we upgrade to latest version, our console cant play some of the old game, is it true?
Thanks for sharing.

why need to change drive, is it because u r on very old fat xbox?
best drive and easiest to flash would be benq,. find a rrod
with benq and use the drive for cheap mod.

its not that OLD game cant play, its just that there is a protection
update, if u have the OLD game ISOs, u can reburn them to the latest
just fine/

but if u buy from s hop, then true, u cant play it, such as battlefield 3.
because shop usually doesnt reburn, they are factory pressed.

Thanks for the info guru. But i think i need further explaination from you.

When you said "best drive and easiest to flash would be benq,. find a rrod
with benq and use the drive for cheap mod"

Do you mean buy a benq drive myself and update the console my self??

Is there step BY step on how to do this....

Thanks again for the info

there is a step, but changing drive would be for ppl that dont ever want to online gaming,
since changing drive might get u banned. u have to see what version of xbox do u have,
fat has falcon, xenon, jasper etc. tell me yours

Guru,
Is it possible to do online gaming after we mod our x box? i thought online gaming is for original console only... and if i dont change my drive, it there other way to play game that need higher version?

For your info, i sent my console to the shop for version update before, and they said i need to change the drive to update the version...

Btw, how do i check what drive i am using..

Thanks for the info guru, really appreciate this.

some says u can online gaming, but most is risky.
- put ur thumb in the USB tray of ur xbox FAT, pull it off,
u shud be able to pull off the faceplate of ut xbox FAT.
there is a hole there, se what color of wires in there.

unfortunately your drive is SAMSUNG.
u do need to change drive,
suggest u get a benq or liteon.
rm 280 is too xpensive, if its 280,
i suggest u go for JTAG mod.
it shoud cost RM 150 the most.
and lesser if u manage to get benq
or liteon drive, possibly from buying
dead xbox or something. cheers

Guru,

When you say buy benq or lite on, do you mean buy in a hardware shop, or go to the game shop and ask them to get me a drive with benq?? if buying myself, where can i get one..

I also have question on playing x box online. Is it possible for a modded console to play online? And what about the DLC? Can a modded console play a DLC of the game? I once buy a game with DLC (resident evil5) but when i play, i can only play the original game, not the DLC..

Sorry for asking so many question... i am really new in this..

buy urself, it wont be available in shop. also game shop would sell even higher price.
they sell drive that have been salvage from RROD machines, therefore, why dont
u get a RROD machine and get the drive, and maybe some other spareparts along the way.
i bought RROD machine for RM 70 last time, comes with benq, i bought 2 in fact.
gave 1 benq to my fren. 1 i use for ripping originals.

No, u cant do DLC, if u want DLC, u need to JTAG, which is a hard mod,
nstalling chip to your xbox.

a faulty machine, ask the seller whats faulty, asl long as the
DVD is not faulty, u can get it. just make sure its Benq.
liteon is rarely got, since it on Jasper machine which rarely fault.
