I assume you know that you can't just fit a standard pc drive to an xbox?
There is a lot of work to convert a pc drive to an xbox drive.

I think you would be better off buying an xbox dvd drive from ebay, or from one of many sites selling xbox spares.
An xbox dvd drive would be a straight swap with the one you have now. No chips involved.

Nice idea m8 but no.

Xbox file system is different to pc and the dvd drive won't work either.
