I would've thought so, here's a guide on how to do it (and probably any other info you need).

Yup, you can put any of the three (Thompson, Samsung or Philips) in the machine. I've previously swapped a Philips for a Samsung. If you've not swapped one over before there's an excellent guide over at Xbox Scene.

Just out of interest where did you manage to order the drive from?

When your DVD drive died, did it bring up an error message or would it just not read the disk?

Mine brings up error message 12 which supposedly means it cannot detect the DVD drive!
