Xbox 360 Drive replacement

I saw some video on youtube showing that you can replace the card of a 360 drive with another one without actually having to flash the new 360 drive is that possible, I can post the link for the video Here it is:

I want to try this becuase microsoft wants to charge me for my repairs, My dvd drive is a HITACHI Lite
Model No: GDR-3120L
Rom Ver: 0079FL

Will this work and if it does can you tell me any good sites to get an actual 360 drive

I dont think you'll get many answers on here as most people will assume you're a pirate, Jim-lad. But I dont think the worst of people so I'll help what best I can.... is your best bet for 360 mods and repairs. Their forums have all the info you could ever need on all things 360.

As for parts, try

I just bought some foam pads from them to stop my drive scratching disks.

Hope that helps ;)
