    I've edited the audio for perfection.
    However it's still loud without any edits.

    Dont remind me of that, i swear if it wasnt for the bloody HDD encryption on the 360 i would have kept the console, 80Gb wasnt a lot,but when space ran out,i had to listen to the ODD sound of torture :D

    you can use party buffalo to read the 360 hdd. I don't remember the specifics though, but I've used it before with the official transfer cable. it may be easier now. I've heard that 500+ GBs causes the app to become unstable. I didn't try one that large. I'm not all that well versed in fatx, the 360 hdd format, but I do remember that if you make your own hdd, you have to input your serial number for it to be read in the console. you can easily get the serial number in system settings. it's not as problematic as the ps3's hdd encryption, because you can even read the hdd without having a jtag/rgh.

    @Naked_Snake1995 HDD encryption? X360 HDD isn't encrypted, it just using strange file system called FATX (similar to XC HDD). Or am I wrong? Because I remember that I read it's content via application: Xplorer360.

    you're both sorta right, iirc it worked in combination with eeprom and a hdd key that was linked to the motherboard.

    EEPROM? In X360? Isn't You misleading with XC and ATA Master/Slave Password security? Because this is not any kind of encryption but ancient ata command used to lock access to the HDD, not encryption data on it. And indeed, XC use it as security layer and this "key" is stored in EEPROM memory where is BIOS config and similar data.

    However, I'm not sure if X360 doing the same or they just put every faith in siging executables/user data deep inside KeyVault (in CPU)?

    Optical drives usually reach high-speed when you copy or burn.
    However I used Nero DiscSpeed to test the speed.

    You cannot reach more than x52 for CD (DVD have different scale, well, basically in such case we should talk about full cycle per second instead of reading speed in bytes) because disc would shatter into billion pieces, destroying drive. Louder depend on i.e disc geometry, quality of used components, speed of course and even box.

    But it is unofficial way and is dangerous to discs. I have in mind speeds coded in official firmwares. If this models are doing it out of the box, if they are designed that by manufacturer, this means that I'm wrong about it, but for sure it is not safe for discs.

    watch the video again,he explains way better than i ever could with my broken english,there's more ways to get faster read speeds than simply increasing the number of revolutions,in theory you could build a cd reader that has sensor for everysector of the disc and get bottlenecked just by transferring that data and categorizing it later down the chain...

    true X is if not the only commercially available cd reader that was using that method as DVD's (that used similar method as kenwood did for that drive) took over shortly afterward,i just posted that video not to prove you wrong or start any argument just simply to point out that there's more to a cd reading speed than just revolutions per minute.

    Once I had a CD-R blown up inside this drive: (yes the video's mine.)
    That CD-R was already finished but I forced lol. (was too curious xd)
    However I replaced a part inside and now it works fine.
