sorry for any confusion Saleem your correct thanks for that, would not matter about tray position for erase flash, I always just leave the drive untill everything is done (less chance something going wrong :P) but to anyone drive try only required for reading. But I ahve seen alot of problems with X51 status not returning with poorly erased consoles. Thats just what I have some accross.
US based xbox 360 drive flashing: Any drive 40$
liteon, samsung, hitatchi, benq.
You pay shipping to me, I pay it back to you.
Will do drive swaping, $50.
1 day turn around.
