Interesting question.

Yes you can do that but you don't need to replace the DVD Rom.
You need 2 tools: PAL-to-NTSC converter box and a voltage converter. Don't know where to buy these though. Sorry.

If you manage to get those tools then you need to refer to a guide. Here's a detailed one from e How:

Hope you get it working.

Tried to play new game, says not enough memory space. I deleted everything and still wont play, help!

You may have an old series console version of the Xbox 360 that only has either 256MB or 512MB of internal memory. You may also have a new series console version of the Xbox 360 that only has 4GB or data storage. For multi-disk games that install one or more disks, you need, at minimum, a 20GB hard drive installed in your console. You will need to invest in a hard drive for your Xbox 360.

I put a new disc drive in my xbox 360 but it dosent read games

Why you replaced the dvd drive i do not know, The problem is if you have installed a non microsoft xbox dvd driver it will not work! If your original dvd driver is broken as to why you have replaced it, contact microsoft or your local games shop for another xbox 360 or drive. You can also by a addon driver, you can see it here

Benq dvd drives

Ok the problem is all xbox 360 motherboards come with preset keys like a password everyone is different. your origanal benq vad 6038 dvd drive also has the key programed into its sst chip on the pcb (Printed Circut Board) which allows it to work with that motherboard (another way of explaning this is it works the same way as a wireless network anyone can connect to it but you must input the correct password to be able to connect and use the internet)

There is a solution you need to extract the dvd key out of your old dvd drive and inject it into your new one. To do this you will need a few tools

Installed new Xbox DVD ROM, but cannot read games

The DVD drives must match the motherboard that it came with. Unless you go through a very complicated re-flashing process. If the motherboard and DVD drive do not match, it will not play 360 games
