If I wanted to replace it would have to be with another Thompson correct?

You can put any other DVD drive from another Xbox
or make a replacement drive like LG and Samsung.

ALso, I just tried this and it worked. Just BE careful:

Open up Xbox case and remove the drive completely from case, then take a phillips head and unscrew the two screws on the top side of the drive (They are on the sides of the drive.

Next, just clean the laser GENTLY with alcohol and make sure to dry it. After that replace lid screw it down and pop in your game. Give it a couple of reboots if it doesn't work the first time.

TIP: You will know its reading the disc when you hear the drive start making a loud sound and the sound changes. WOrked for me

You need to clean the mirror as well in the Thompson with canned air.
Read these as well
http://www.llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/cleaning_your_dvd_drive.htm

Or you can buy a new Laser lens(TOP-60) for your Thompson drive on Ebay near you.

Well, yeah if that doesnt work. i found by cleaning the lens and burning XMC installer at 4X on good media, that I could boot THAT disc. I can then install UnleashX (which is all you need to do as of right now) and it didnt hang or throw an error.

Try it out. It takes about 10 min to burn the DVD and 5 to clean the lens. Ill be here all night to help you so make sure to keep us updated.

I had to clean the laser on the drive originally to get it to work before I even soft,odder I will clean again and use air. Hopefully it works but if not I'm sure the
Asher isn't too expensive.

As far as "nuking" my dash goes that is a easy fix with a burnt CD?

I feel very close to having this fixed, thanks guys.

Yeah the XBMC installer i pointed you to on this site is a bootable DVD that has an option to "Redo Softmod". Just make sure if you have a Shadow C you disable it first, then redo the mod.

Very Happy And no problem, that's why I'm here
