    Hook it up to Jungleflasher and see what it says.
    Or you know, take out the entire drive and post a picture of the PCB/top sticker.

    I could technically rip out the tray of a phatty and replace it with a Slim tray, then sell it off as a bootleg drive ;')

    yeah, that's probably the best way. you have to open the system anyway. it will tell you make/model on the drive itself.

    I didn't even know that some drives couldn't be flashed, though I suspected with the winchester board at least. if you flip through that pdf, you'll find some crazy methods to flash drives. my favorite is the kamikaze hack. how would anyone figure that out?

    if they came out of a slim, it would appear to be a bootleg drive. I looked at the pdf when you mentioned the make. iirc, it didn't say anything about samsung drives being in slims. plus, it says october 2006 on it. ms28 appears to be the drive:

    btw, I"m not entirely sure what to do with a spoofed drive as I've never spoofed one, so using the tutorial for your drive may not be correct. it may require the tutorial for a slim drive. @DinohScene will probably know for sure, since he has a lot more experience with flashing drives. it's been a long time, but I think jungle flasher can read the drive firmware to tell you exactly what you have. its obviously been flashed before as well as spoofed.

    Yeh that drive belongs in a Xenon/Zephyr model originally.

    Slims have Hitachi/Liteon.

    Tbf, I don't think you can flash it to stock and let it update, your best bet is to get a stock or replacement Slim drive or RGH it and forget about Live.

    Hmm not sure what that means
    but I've never even considered using Xbox live so that was really a non-issue

    So I could reset glitch hack this drive? or at least attempt it

    If you can solder then you could attempt it yourself, otherwise I'd suggest going to a local modshop and letting them RGH it for you
    The drive is pretty much useless.

    You could change your KV to accept the drive if it's RGH'd but eh in all honesty, I'd leave it as is.

    I think one of those old drives can't even be flashed to lt 3.0 or doesn't accept xgd3. I had a jtag before xgd3 came out, and my original xenon was dead by that time, so I'm not sure what happens even with a legit drive if it can't be flashed. this is just something I vaguely remember.

    They will accept XGD3 but OSIG mismatches, so the console tries to do the XGD3 checks since it expects to have a XGD3 checks capable drive.
    It fails and iirc will simply halt.
    I think it also triggers a flag but I'm not sure anymore.

    do you mean that xgd3 won't run at all even if legit forcing the user to buy a new system?

    They will happily accept XGD3, it's just that the old drives can't perform the same checks the other drives can.
    The older consoles ignore it, newer consoles however don't.

    Pair this with a old drive and you'll get it why it won't work ;p

    I can't recall which drive is in my falcon jtag. it's only flashed to 2.0 though, so no xgd3 support. I've never flashed that level on any of my 3 systems. pretty much pointless with a jtag or rgh, but since you have the system open.

    I've got LT 3.0 on me Falcon RGH.
    Never used it for extracting or playing backup discs on the drive other then ripping retail discs ;p

    It's a neat little extra but otherwise pretty pointless.
