Microsoft Most powerful console available. The Xbox is doing well on its homecourt, but on the road sales aren't dominating.

Dead Disc Drive

It simply won't read discs anymore. What would be the recommended course of action?
  • Purchase new 360: obviously most expensive option, most likely to be reliable for the long term. Could also upgrade to the 250gb harddrive.
  • Repair: probably about $70, maybe a limited time warranty.
  • Buy used: mid price option but crapshoot for reliability.

In the meantime I'll be playing games on the hard drive, arcade titles and such. No plans to buy the XBone at least until Xmas of next year (if then).

Buy the drive and replace it yourself. It's not hard.

I don't think you can do that, I tried swapping drives from one xbox to another and it would not accept the new drive because it wasn't assigned to that xbox.

It's my understanding that it has to be the same model, or you might have to flash some firmware.

Of course, I've not researched it much.

EDIT: A bit of research reveals that yes, it has to be the same model and you either swap circuit boards or recover and flash firmware.

Shao, I have a Hitachi-LG Model GDR-3120L that you can have for the price of shipping if yours happens to be the same model. Check the link above.

Thanks for the offer, but researching the DIY route it seems like more work than I want to undertake right now. Local shop says they can fix it for forty and it takes an hour or two. Fugg it. I'll support a small business and save myself the headache.
