Ridiculous. Surely it would be more cost efficient to buy a drive and fit it yourself?

Which Xbox is it son?

When I did mine, I followed this video, and used board from my drive in new drive, no flashing involved, and no soldering, and it worked perfect, and still working now.

It depends on drive, some drives need solder, one of them doesn't.
