I've been sitting on repairing a faulty dvd drive for over a year. I've had the part but just never carved out the time to open up the case and make the necessary repair. Part of my delay is taking the time to swap daughter boards from the old xbox dvd drive to the new dvd drive. If you don't make this swap, the xbox won't recognize the drive.

Anyway, the whole repair took a few hours, since I spent a fair amount of time screaming at the plastic clips that need to be carefully removed and reassembled. I miss the days of things just being a screw instead of cheap plastic that can snap off easily.

Now we have a working xbox one dvd drive. The first thing I did was download a bunch of games (and not actually use the dvd drive).
