    just get a cd spindle, cut a retangular piece of it. hold it up to the back of the xbox and mark where all the notches are. then cut the notches out so they're about 3mm wide.

    you'll need to make two, one for the bit with 4 notches, one for the bit with 2.

    I know the answer to that.

    Take the faceplate off your 360.

    above the memory card slot on the right there is small hole 1cm or less.

    shine a flashlight into this and if the wire is white then you've a BENQ and you are a lucky man/woman..

    If the wire is yellow then you have a liteon which is moddable but more complicated...

    If there isn't a hole or there is plastic around the area, then you have a different drive altogether, either a hitatchi or a samsung, thease are both moddable.

    not if you've already messed it up.

    should have used a hair dryer to heat it up then removed it very slowly and carefully.

    i did heat it up and remove it slowly and carefully, obviously not enough, most of it came of alright.
