Forum Thread: Xbox 360 Disc Drive on PC (Flash Procedure)

Hello friends, if you are like me then you know the benefits of flashing your Xbox 360 disc drive. It's a cool thing to do, but up until this point you couldn't find anything reliable to base yourself off of. Let me start by saying this process is very long and consumes more time than you initially think it would because you're a total noob trying to get free and/or back-ups of your games. So let me start this journey by saying the flashing is possible with the right equipment (not any device...

Forum Thread: How Convert My Pre-Lit Tree to LED

I have a pre-lit tree lit with mini bulbs at 125vac 5a 625w and i want to convert it to blue LED. I would prefer to just swap out the bulbs, but is that possible? Doesn't the power for regular bulbs and LED ones differ? I am not opposed to re-stringing the tree, but the wire has to be black, since my tree is black.
