I plan on transferring the key instead of swapping the PCB.
But I'm not sure what kind of drive i need to buy. I haven't been able to find one with the same hw and fw versions as me, a0a1 and 93450c.
Does that matter? Or does it just have to be a liteon dg-16d2s?
And can I use the xbox to power the drive?
Sorry, I've never done this before.
I did search through many threads before posting, and didn't find anything that answered my question. Thanks.

What do you mean same model? are you saying "yes as long as it is a dg-16d2s then its fine"? or are you saying that the hw and fw versions also have to be the same?

alright sweet.
and my laptop happens to have an eSATA port on it. So i could use a eSATA to SATA cable?
and just use the xbox to power the drive or what?

xconsoles if you live in the states is the best place to get it . if you have a problem with it you can return it back in 30 days I think

i originally planned on just swapping the pcb but it sounds like it would be easier for me to just swap the key. I dont have a solder, or soldering experience. so I think this would be easier
