Replacing bluray drive with external drive?

My grandsons console was run over (true) opened everything up and only damage is the ribbon at front of console (easy repair)a very distorted case and smashed optical drive. Console boots up fine and responds as expected, because the case is so distorted I can't install a replacement optical drive, my question is can an external blu ray drive be used or a generic drive placed in the case if the damaged metal was removed and the case modified to suit.

The main problem you are going to run into with anything like this that you try is that the blu ray drive that came in the unit from the factory is married to the motherboard. There is a PCB that is inside the blu ray drive that must stay with the motherboard. This means that you can replace the optical drive with an identical one but you must also switch the PCB on the new drive with the one that is matched to the motherboard.

Unfortunately there is no way to replace the blu ray drive with anything other than the exact type that came with the Xbox One.

I hope this helps.

Have you done this yourself because i can find no evidence of this actually working. It did on the 360 but i cannot find one mention of it working on the xbox one

Yes, my company replaces blu ray drives and it works fine. You probably won't find this anywhere out there because there's just not that much info about these out there yet.

BTW, I would never knowingly give people advice that is not correct or that I have not tried myself.

Ok. One more question.I am not good at soldering so I was thinking when I remove the old board I would leave as much of the two soldered cables as possible and splice/patch the cables rather try to solder the boards. Any thoughts on this.

Huh? The daughter board is soldered to a motor within the drive!

perrypk...YES you are right...I totally got this question confused with another one that I was answering reguarding a PS4 optical drive...those are located on the top of the optical drive. You are correct though in stating that the board for the Xbox One is inside the drive itself! Sorry for anyone who was confused by my comment!

interesting info so if the xbox drive is married to the motherboard and there is an electronic fault with the drive like mine there is no point in swapping the board over to a new drive they dont state this on amazon does this mean all of those drives on amazon are useless and wont work i was thinking of external usb player but it looks like they have taken care of that idea and that wont work either i am now thinking of putting a bluray player in my computer to copy the game files to a flash drive i bet i cant lastly where and how would you get a married to the motherboard replacement bluray player ALF CRUNCHBUCKET

When you order a full replacement kit it comes with a motherboard as well. The optical laser kit only comes with the laser itself. So in other words make sure you're shopping for the right thing. If you suspect it is the optional PCB buy the full kit including a married Xbox One mother board with Blu Ray replacement repair kit. If you're looking for the drive itself it's why information is so limited if you're searching in that context, instead search: "Xbox One optical full repair kit" + motherboard. For example. You might also have a mechanical problem you'd do well to also search: Xbox One optical drive correct vs incorrect lever/laser placement. There's quite a bit that needs to be just right in this drive to function right. Also will show how to clean rollers and surfaces.

your only option would be to get microsoft to replace the drive for you , they would then re marry the drive to your console
