Hi, any discussion of self repair is strictly forbidden on the forums. Your best option would be to have it repaired by the only authorised repair company, Microsoft.

To a product which no longer can be repaired officially? To be honest was pointed here by Xbox Support.

Xbox support shouldn't have suggested you ask for help regarding self repair, it is a breach of the terms of use to self repair your console.

Why can't you send it in for repair ? Did you open it up already, if that's the case then yes Microsoft wouldn't touch it with a very long pole. What you do with the console is your decision, should you succeed in repairing the console don't be surprised when it gets banned from Live.

As an Ambassador you should know this.

I don't want to appear rude but this isn't the place for this discussion and as such I have nothing further to add.

My friend, you can no longer send an original Xbox for official repairs. Microsoft no longer supports the system. Also Xbox Live for Xbox Original has been shut down. So the only thing I can do is to repair it by myself. Just searching for an official DVD drive for replacement.

It's an original Xbox, not an Xbox 360. I don't believe Microsoft repairs the original consoles anymore, so that's why he can't send it in for repairs.

Anything I find on google just shows drives/advice for the 360, not the original Xbox. A lot of people just suggest buy a new one.
