    I think you can but it's very risky.

    you will need the key off the xbox drive to be able to put a new drive in

    Make sure u r under warranty first. Also most common thing is there is dust build up on the lens.

    if you plan on swapping out the DVD Drives, make sure you get the right replacement, some have a Toshiba/Samsung other's have a Phillips Lite-on and others have HItachi

    here's some visual aid to help figure out what one is which.

    If you have opened the xbox already and broken the seal,your warranty is gone so u cant send it to xbox
    a lens replacement or dvd drive isnt expensive but then again it depends if u have the right tools,Ned to extract that key and spoof onto new drive

    I have had this many many time on repairs
    Sometimes you can get away with a lens replacement (Remember if you buy a new lens u need to have the anti staticsolder ball removed)

    then sometimes even with a new lens the drive still dont want to work
    i would say open it up see what drive it is (most likey a benq or liteon) and buy a new drive off ebay
    U will then need to get the key off your old drive and put that to your new one
    then away you go for another few years

    u will need a xbox 360 usb pro and a ck3 and a molex power supply and jungleflasher software and if your drive is a lite on u will need a probe to probe the pcb board to read the key

    You can use XBOX360 USB pro and use the probe to extract the key. Alot of ppl use this when flashing XBoxes. If you dont want to buy one then I suggest getting someone to do it for you or the person that flashed your xbox if he still has your key saved.
