    You also need to take it apart to see which model it is, which you need to know.

    don't forget the BenQ which is a lot more popular in the newer models now.

    Haha, was going to say BenQ before Offtopic posted that link. Looks like I was beat.

    Easiest drive to hack, imo.

    EDIT: Where in Scotland are you from? [​IMG]

    Hitachi is the easiest, every sata chipset can be used!

    I thought it all depended on which version of the Hitachi drive you had. Getting into ModeB seems like a hassle to me.

    I modded 2 kinds of Hitachi drives that needed seperate hacks, and they worked on my chipset.

    BenQ Drives are the easiest to hack.
    all you need is a PCI card from ebay that will cost about $10 posted.

    You need a chip for some types of Hitachi drives.

    You have a BenQ for sure. Just google "Textbook 360 Guide" and it's the very first link. Took me about 5 minutes to flash one of these for a friend ;)
    EDIT: Assuming you have a VIA sata chipset or Via 6421 PCI sata card in your PC.
