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 eBay.com 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.
