The one I have has a hard time reading discs now. So how will I know if it's due to the update? I have an original launch box too, but the DVD drive was changed out on it before by MS.

Nope, M$ will be able to tell which boxes are effected and sending out e-mail's to let those users know about the deal. Also, it has a specific error message. A regular crappy drive has a different error.

Wow replacing my launch box with a 250gb slim would be tight.

That's the thing- I have an original launch Xbox, and it never got the RROD but the DVD drive went out and they replaced it (for $100). So I'm wondering if that replaced drive gets the "error" if they will be able to tell and replace my box. It really doen't matter to me, as I would rater keep the old style than move to the new slim as I can switch my HD and memory card between my Xboxes easier, but i don't want an Xbox that will not work at all.

Do I need to buy a new game that doesn't have the copyright protection in order to tell if it will run or not? Or should my old games stop running if the update didn't take?

Launch box but I did have the dvd drive replaced for free my M$ a couple years ago.
