    Well..... just switched on my 360 and nothing. Nothing at all. Not powering up. The power supply works as I tested it on an older one I have (which is pretty much useless as the laser is borked).
    Just switch the drives?
    DVD drives in 360 consoles are "married" to the hardware. You'll need to research a way to retrieve your old DVD drive "key" and use it for the new one if you try this approach.
    Really? When my 360's drive went out I got a broken one off craigslist and swapped the drives and all was well. They were both Hitachis even though they were visibly different... Just luck? Maybe?

    Welp I think it's safe to say I'm a bit out of my league here :D
