If they are both the same model, and you are comfortable doing this then the short answer would be yes. Good luck.

    Like if both are elites, arcade models. The parts would be interchangeable. Hope this helps.

Hi guys I found out why the disk wont read in my system anyway

Interesting. Not all Xbox 360s use the same type DVD drive. There are at least 3 different brands - Benq, Samsung, and Hatachi. There are various ways of determining this, besides opening the Xbox 360. Based on the drive type, there are different versions of firmware(the software on the drive that communicates with the Xbox 360). Some firmware modifications Microsoft doesn't want consumers to know because it allows the playing of cloned dvds.

My xbox wont read any movies or games it just keeps telling me to open the tray and i dont no what to do

This has been a problem with some 360s and it is usually the disk drive itself, if the game loads on a different 360 but yours won't, this is the case. If under warranty call xbox. if not you would need to replace it yourself or buy a new xbox. Their are various websites selling the drives.

Help me please!!!! how many different types of xbox 360s are there in gamestop tell me there names and prices. and is it okay to get the xbox 360 pro refurbished at gamestop are the refurbished xbox 360...

personally never buy a refurbished xbox,unless u want to be swaping parts in and out all the time, people dont usually return xboxs, simply becasue of the multimedia se unless it has gone bad, so spend that extra money and you should be set there is the xbox elite, in black and xbox pro in plain white but there is different versions like 60 gb 8 gb or 40 gb harddrives. there is also special edition xboxs but gamestop might not carry them

Has a4 flashing red lights put I replaced the

It is a well-known problem for the xbox 360. it even has a name "red ring of death" 33% of the xbox 360s out there are infected with this problem.
Try to contact Microsoft, hopefully it's still in warranty.
Hope this helps..

My xbox 360s isn't working

In very rare instances I believe that the dvd drive of your xbox 360 might have been disconnected.In this case,it dispays an "open tray" message.For this you will have to open your 360 but please take it to the dealer if you are still protected by warranty.Good luck.Thanks for reading.

No signal error

If you've tried different cables, then it is something wrong with the video card and you should call 1-800-4my-xbox. almost all xbox 360s are in warranty with them and although it is a pain to deal with them, its the easiest and cheapest solution. Unless your extremely good with electronics and computers I wouldnt open the case because that would void the warranty if there is one.

That's the three red rings of death problem that afflicts most of the XBox 360s out there. Microsoft has extended the warranty of the consoles for three years for this specific problem. Go here: for details and instructions for contacting Microsoft for repairs.
