    I do not have a torque screw driver to open my 360 to hotswap, so I am going to try and pull it open... I have tried using a paperclip but it would not budge and I am afraid of pulling it incase it breaks... HELP

    You can take the top of the case off using a paperclip or whatever, but the bottom is held on with screws, you can't open it without a torx screwdriver...

    well, you can try using like a small flat head or something..but it would be hard.

    Wait...

    do you mean 'open it' as in 'take it apart'?

    Or do you mean activate the coffee cup holder?

    'cause there's a button on the mobo to activate the coffee mug holder which you can reach by taking off the faceplate and jamming a nail or a paperclip into the furthest left gap (when the xbox is sitting on it's side).

    But if you go to the dashboard, you can press x to eject the disk (while you have the disk highlighted, obviously).

    Are you talking about ejecting the disk drive, or taking it apart?! :D

    You can eject it with a paperclip, but definately not take it apart with one.

    I'm looking at mine right now (my xbox stays in bits to prevent overheating) and there are at least 4 screws on it :D
