I just have a few questions on this subject. 1. can I use my 360 to power the drive, and simply attach the SATA data cable into my laptop? (NO DESKTOPS HERE) 2. what is a list of things I would need to flash my drive, (it's a phat, Jasper mobo 360, so it's probably a liteon drive) 2a. I've seen some people say that a "probe" is needed for the liteon drive. what is this, and can I make it myself? sorry if this has been asked 1,000,000 times before, I'm new to this, and recently got a new 360 because my old 360 (was jasper as well) won't behave when reading any kind of discs. it'll spin for a sec, stop, spin for a sec, stop, etc. if I'm posting in the wrong place, I'd appreciate it i any of you wonderful mods would close this thread and link to a correct thread. thank you in advance!
