Step by step disassembly guide for the Microsoft Xbox (Original) Philips DVD drive.

This was not my personal Xbox so please don’t ask what happened to the top cover. It is assumed the original owner got a game stuck inside and couldn’t figure out how to recover it without prying the top spindle off. They were kind enough to electrical tape it back down and this drive is now fully functional :)
