    Need Help Identifying DVD Drive in 360 Slim

    I got my new 360 Slim the other day and I'm trying to find out which DVD drive is in it. I know there is no SUREFIRE way to figure this out without opening it and looking, but I'm trying to get a good idea. The specs are as follows:

    Xbox 360 Slim
    250gb hard drive
    MFR Date: 07/23/2011
    Lot Number: 1130X
    Last four of S/N: 3009
    Team: FWUH
    Model Number: 1439

    I'm really interested in getting this console flashed, if possible, so if anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

    The only way to be 100% sure is to hook your drive up to the latest Jungle Flasher and see what the model / firmware version is.

    I'd say you're a Hitachi and SOL

    7/2011 is likely a 0401 and flashable or a 16D5S. Hitachi's are more 2012+

    I have seen 10-2011 with 0401 and MXIC

    if it's unflashable, you can't use that SHIT thing either(you need your DVD key anyway..it is a waste of money, you'd be better off RGHing it...soooo much better...I have one , and never use it, in a console gathering dust.. really not worth it.. more a pain than anything else
    sometimes the easiest things can be made so hard...
    helping some people here is like smashing my head into a wall

    easiest way to tell is crack open the console and hook it up to computer
