I have a launch Xbox 360, anyone know what drive it is likely to have? Just want to know before I open it, unlikely to be BenQ I think.

You can tell without having to open it up by just looking at the shape of the holes in the disc tray when it is open.
You should be able to find a reference image on google.

Try this link, I think you'll probably have a hitachi drive, which are cheap and utter rubbish - I know cos I have one :'(

The Hitachi ones aren't easily flashable are they? Weird that the later drives are quieter and easy to flash. Damn.

ms25 is my bet for a first version 360,

Sure it went ms25, ms28, then all the hitatchi's then benq then lite-on...

I could be wrong though..

If you follow the instructions step-by-step and watch the videos on how to open it, it's not that hard, just a little long winded, you know what drive you have? P.S. Prince of Persia and Dead Space are great!
