    hi can some one help me get started with flashing xbox 360s. All I have is a laptop with no external data port. Can some one explain to me what I need to get to hook the DVD drive to my computer. Also what tools are the best to have for flashing all drives even liteon? Maximus or team exectioner. Also one last question can some one direct me to a good guide? Thanks for your help

    You need a desktop computer. Hook it up via SATA.

    Yes, but the VIA chipset that most guides will talk about won't work with the Hitatchi. Trust me. I also believe they won't work through USB, you can see if anyone tried.

    Isn't the Phillips actually a Benq or Lite-on? You can tell a Benq from a Lite-on by the color of the wire.
