i dont think the dvd drive gets locked like a HDD. What i think is xbox bios probably places a firmware or something or reads it as plug and play. What i think you should do is update the firmware of the dvd drive and see if it works in pc. You should be able to update firmware since the dvdrom is detected by pc. _________________

What OS are you using?
No, the DVD drive is not locked in anyway, and if your not flashing the FW in the drive, the xbox won't do anything to it. Assuming its a standard PC dvd rom then you may just need to update your drivers for the drive. _________________
