Ok this is what i know

Both drives are Toshiba Samsung's
The one in the xbox right now is not flashed but i have one that is and i was wondering if i can put the flashed one in the xbox instead of getting it flashed.

I know there is something about switching keys but how do you do that??

No you cannot. In order to change the drives over you have to swap the PCBs and that is the part that has the custom firmware on it. You could swap the keys but that would require the same equipment used to flash the drive so in effect it would be easier to just flash the new/non-flashed one.

Lol I started out that previous post by saying "No you cannot." When you flash a drive it is the PCB that contains the custom firmware, and in order to change the DVD drives you need to swap their PCBs to keep the keys the same. Since you are swapping the PCB the custom firmware goes with it. Do you see the paradox issue?
