XBox DVD drive broke

So my faithful Philips XBox DVD-Rom drive broke yesterday.  It stopped reading any and all CDs/DVDs.  The good thing about this Phillips was that it would read any CD-R or any DVD-/+R that I would throw at it.  Now, I’m off to find me a Samsung.  I’ve found quite a few on but the shipping is a little outrageous.  They want $49.99 for the drive and then $19.99 for shipping.  That’s just way too expensive for just a bare DVD drive.  I think fair shipping would be around $10 bucks max via USPS Priority.  USPS is a lot faster and cheaper than all of the other carriers when shipping to Hawaii.

I’m definately going to need a new DVD drive as well as a bigger hard drive.  I’ll keep everyone updated.
