    So got my 360 back from ms today. They replaced the mobo and dvd drive but it looks like its a benq drive so im getting my modder coming over soon to fix it up. Hopefully it'll all be sorted shortly.

    There are a new type 360 DVD Drives which has a dvd disc like the BenQ but it is un-flashable. It is best to check the label on the drive.

    Just thought i'd say that.

    I got my BenQ flash also =D it was so cheap, £20 from djnaff on #GBAtemp.net, that includes the flash and burned game of my choice and special delivery so i would get it the next day.

    Hopefully you won't get the unflashable Lite-on drive, which looks the same as the flashable Benq.

    yeah, jaxxster check the lable on your dvd drive. If it is a Lite-on then you won't be able to get it flashed.

    Well im just waiting to get it back from the modder. He should be dropping it off soon i hope. I looked into the dvd drive through the faceplates and the cables where white which means benq aparently whereas the yellow ones mean lite-on

    So they repaired your console instead of sending a new one? I didn't know MS did that.

    Yeah, i got a sheet back saying the dvd drive and mobo had been replaced. Though its still an old mobo with an extra heatsink aparently, no new falcon mobo.

    yeah, people are mad at that. I wouldn't mind, unless it was about to RROD.

    As long as whatever problem was fixed, I wouldn't mind either.
    I thought MS replaces console for any problem not just RROD. Guess you learn something new everyday.
