A replacement motor for the disc drive

Postby MonkeyBoyBlitz » Fri Nov 24, 2017 3:04 pm

I don't mean the main spindle motor, I mean the tray motor. I've already tried replacing the belt and lubricating the gears. It seems like replacing the tray motor is the only way to fix it getting stuck all the time.

So. Got any idea what sort of motor model I have to get?

I'd just get another drive completely, my main XBOXs Samsung drive went pretty much straight away as it was badly treated by it's previous owner and now my 2nd one is going now, exactly the same Samsung drive, weak assed tray movement that doesn't always go back in as the motors not strong enough anymore.

I found a mint stock complete machine with no accessories on ebay and it was local too, just swapped it out, all 3 machines in question are v1.6.

What version Xbox is it, silver sticker on the bottom tells you, the line that reads

:MFG. DATE ?

I have an SDG-605 rev. B drive whose laser went bad a few years ago. I was able to buy a replacement laser that I haven't had a chance to replace yet.

Hmm, and this drive was supposed to be one of the more reliable drives of all the models manafactured for the console... :|

I'm not sure the Samsung was the most reliable. It could read most media thrown at it. Making it the most highly sought after drive.

From my recent experience modding original Xbox consoles, the largest percentage of non-operational (other than tray eject belt repair) DVD drives have been Samsung drives.

Good luck on your quest of fixing your Samsung drive. I happened upon an xbox at the thrift store, and bought it for the purpose of modding it. The xbox had never been opened before, and when i opened it it look like it just came from the factory. There was like literally no dust, the fan had a miniscule amount, and the motherboard was nice and shiny, and i happened to get one of the Samsung drives. Mine opens, closes, and everything just fine. I think it has to do with the way the xbox looked inside, and i don't think mine got a lot of attention. Anyways wanted to wish you luck, and have a great rest of your day/night whichever it is for you!

Maybe I can help you out, I have two Samsung disc drives. 1 is a ver A made in 2005 I never had any problems with it. If you have a ver B made in 2003, It ended up where it only reads CD now, I just kept it for that purpose. You don't really need to worry about disc drives though. If you have a molex splitter you can use a PC disc drive to install games. You can just ftp them over, or use just your flash drive which I use for small games.

The only reason I probably still have my drive that is fully working. I just use it occasionally to install a game. Hope you work out your problem.

It's good as a reference point for others too, it's made me get out my trusty T20 and open up 5 XBOXs to see what I have as 5 of the 6 I have currently have Samsung's + I stole your picture, I just know this subjects going to come up again.
