    so i have a liteon drive in my phat xbox 360. i opened it and connected it to my pc with the probe 3. once i turned the xbox on though the drive wouldn't start up, i checked all the connections and everything was fine. so i put the xbox back together and when i turn it on i can't hear the drive turning on and the disk tray won't open. did i burn out the drive or something what happened?

    Check if the connections are loose since it might not be receiving any power, it should at least turn on if it is so worst case you fried it best case the cable became loose.

    If you hooked up the probe in the wrong way then yes you possibly have fried the board.

    What's your Dash version?

    You could RGH it if it's under 14719 (or keep it on 15572 until something has been found)

    If you don't want a RGH and want XBLive then you can recover your DVD key with the RGH..

    not really interested in soldering anything...is it possible to just buy a new drive and replace it?

    Do you have the DVD key?
    If not then no.

    The only way to retrieve it is to either solder on the flashchip of the drive to another drive or to RGH it and retrieve the key.

    Or buy a whole new 360.

    If it's still on dash 14719 or lower then you can sell it off as a RGHable 360.
