    identifying xbox 360 drive by opening tray

    Can anybody post a link to a picture which shows all xbox360 drive trays so i can identify what type is in a new console i bought.

    I've searched but can only find one that shows an hitatchi, samsung and benq

    only way to tell is opening it, if you take of the front and look in the little hole

    yellow wires = liteon
    white = benq

    If yours is none of the ones you mentioned then by process of elimination yours must be a LiteOn.

    Pop off the faceplate and eject the DVD drive. There's a little hole with a wire inside it, just visible. Shine a light in there to see what colour the wire is. If its yellow then you definitely have the LiteOn drive.

    edit: beaten to it! :-)

    edit2: you dont have to eject the drive. the hole is just below the "xbox 360" text engraving on the drive's faceplate

    Gotta be a LiteOn if its only 5 months old, bought brand new @ xmas. My 360 is about a year old and has the liteon drive
