Playing Burned Xbox Games?

First off im a total n00b to all of this so i was just seeing if anyone out there could help me.
First off i understand that i need a certain drive on my xbox 360 to play burned games? so how do i find out which driver i have in my xbox? which isnt modded or anything.
The manufacturing date on the back of my box is 2007-12-12 if that helps anyone.
After i find out which drive i have, does anyone know where i can go to find out all the info i need for getting games off the internet and getting them to work on my box?
