Looks like i am getting the "open tray error" on my xbox so i have a feeling the dvd reader is going.Has anyone ever replaced the drive themselves? i feel like i could do it my self but i am worried about my xbox thinking its been modded and getting banned from xbox live.Not sure if its better just to send it off for repair before the drive totally fails or risk doing it myself?

Yeah, that's what I plan to do when my ancient 120GB elite toasts on me. It could be dead right now for all I know. I haven't turned it on in probably close to a year now. :-/

My 20GB original is still alive and kicking (well it RRoDed a few years back...) but upgrade HDDs for big white box 360s seem to be hard to come by now :/

This is my second xbox Got my first around early 06 and it died on xmas 08 i was gutted but just in time for it to be sent back and replaced and i have had the replacement since and had no problems with it till now.I also had a 20GB but i was lucky to find a second hand 120GB hardrive for £20 on amazon.I just hope my xbox holds up untill next year as i don't have the cash for a replacement as its the busy time of year.I am getting assassins creed 3 in a few days for my birthday and if my xbox dies i am going to cry manly tears while i eat the thing.

We've got 60GB, 120GB, and refurb 20GB old style HDDs still where I work. There's so little demand it's ridiculous.
