    It's good that you also indicated the wire colors to indicate the difference between the BenQ and Phillips since the disc tray looks just about the same. Nice work.

    You mean difference between a BenQ and a Lite-on. Both drives are made by Phillips.

    Hey everybody, have something interesting here, I bought a 360 the other day and took off the face plate to check the wires, and there are none, regularly this would obviously be a Hitachi but the tray looks like a Philips, I dont have time to take it apart right now so any input would be appreciated. Btw the 360 manufacture date is 6/2009 if that helps any. Thanks for reading!

    You have one of the VERY new lite-ons then. Better hope that you got one that can be dumped.

    I'm sorry, but can you not read? It is clearly right there in the picture. Yellow Wire = LiteOn
