    How to Open, Check for what drive and how to update your Xbox 360​


    First you want to take your Xbox 360 and take off the template that way we can check and see what kind of drive we will be dealing with. In order to take the template off you will need to locate the groove on one end of the xbox (like in this picture):

    Once you have got the template (faceplate) off then you can now locate an oval shaped hole (this will determine what drive you have in your xbox 360). The hole will look like this and be located in the same place:

    Now if you cannot read the picture it says White Wire= BenQ Drive, Yellow Wire= Lite-On Drive, Red w/Black Wires= Samsung Drive, No wires= Hitachi Drive.

    Next once you have found your drive we can now open the xbox 360. You will need a flat head screw driver (small) and a Torx 8 screw driver and something thin like a tooth pick. First you will proceed to the top of the xbox and get your Tooth Pick (or anything thin). There will be little holes on the side like in this picture:

    They will be on both ends so do not forget.You want to pop them off easily do not break them off. Next you want to proceed to the back of the xbox and get your flat head screw driver ready when you have taken the templates off from the last step. When you get to the back of the xbox you will see straight holes that will look like this:

    The Picture shows 5 holes there are actually 7, (the other 2 are on the back but just next to the 5). You want to take your flat head screw driver and shove it in the hole with some force. You want to shove it in until you hear a click. As you hear the click you want to separate the xbox and just keep clicking until the last one where it will open. It should then look like this:

    You dont want them going back together so make sure you keep them apart. Now you want to go back to the front and there will be leverages or i call them clicks. You just want to lift them up to pull the template apart (one click is under your warranty sticker so its your decision if you want to rip or peel. Once that is all done you can pull apart and it should look like this:

    Now this is where you need your Torx 8 screw driver. You will need to remove only 6 screws and they are in this picture as shown:
    [​IMG]

    Once the screws are out you can then flip the xbox over and pull the top right off. You have just opened your xbox, Now yiou can see your drive and now you can really identify the drive by looking here:

    All Done!!!!! (I am not responsible for any damage or loss to your xbox 360 or device in any way, by viewing this you on your own and in no way am i reliable!)
