    Default What X-Box Drive?

    About to purchase a modified xbox but don't know what option to go for, they are both the same price.

    Option 1. Samsung drive with no extras

    Option 2. Philips drive with Halo & mm3 + 2 months live subscription

    Samsung drives are the best for xbox compatability
    Phillips are ok
    Thompson suck.

    Agree with Sanj, Thompson drives are ok, Philips suck big time, but you gotta go with the Samsung :thumbs

    Guys I bought a new box and just installed x2.3b lite plus modchip with the latest bios(x2 4981.06) and it has a samsung drive, now my old xbox(v1.0) got fecked when doing an eeprom change and it has a Thompson drive in it, so when i got my new box rigged up last night I stuck in some of my games and it wouldn't read the games on BulkPak discs. So I stuck in my old Thompson drive and that reads them fine, and they're really cheap discs.

    Then you must have a burner that lets you change the bit setting to dvd-r then.
