Like the guy above said. If you know the DVD keys you should be able to swap drives as long as you change the key of one to match the one you want to swap out. I may be wrong though. . .

Lol this would work and be alot cheaper. You wouldn't have to buy a mod chip.

it not completely dead. you know how the laser and stuff drop down when you hit eject it wont drop down but only when the cover is on the magnet wont let go of it.

Have you tried to take it apart and clean it. There might be something getting stuck in the gears, or maybe the rubber band is dirty. That's what happened to mine when it wouldn't open. Try to clean it as good as possible. If that doesn't work then I don't know what to tell you.

ya that's what i want to do i have to flash the keys to the other drive tho you cant swap the chip out because on the benq the chip is solider to some wires i don't to cut.
if some can explain how to flash keys from one to the other that would be great.
