Default Question on Samsung drive

sponsored links

 
Is the Samsung SD-616 DVD drive is the same drive as the Samsung drive that comes with the xbox system? I remember I read something about 616 but not sure what is the exact model number. I did a search on this forum and didn't find any info about this.

No, I think its the 616T, it uses the same bois or something like that, to make the xbox think its the samsung that it was originally. Not 100% sure on this.

no, the samsung 616t is the pc dvd drive that is flashed with the firmware from the xbox samsung drive, so a pc dvd drive can read cdr and original xbox games and everything between. the xbox samsung dvd drive is SDG-605. but a samsung 616t is just as good as a samsung xbox drive if not better.

Is the samsung 616t available for sale at any pc stores? So to use it for the xbox, do I have to flash the firmware bios or it is ready to use out from the box?

yeah, you'll need to flash the firmware for it if you want original games to work. I believe that you wouldn't have much trouble finding a 616t at any stores, I do not know of any that have them right off of the top of my head, but if you can't find one at a store you can surely pick one up off the net for about $40. it can be installed as an additional drive or it can be replaced with some additional hacks. email me if you need hooked up.

Try pricegrabber or pricewatch and enter in Samsung 616T and you should return a few results. If my memory serves me correctly they quit making this model so you might want to hurry up and get one before they are out of stock for good. It has to be the 616T model in particular. You can find more info about the whole install process at xbox-scene.
