Ok I have a samsung ms-25 updated the firmware to xtreme 3.0 now all I get are 65 error on boot
the drive is still flashable and still have the original firmware.

now heres the bizzare thing if i reflash it back it still gives a 65 error done this about 20 times now even tried flashing my other ms-25 bios from my other machine and tried it in my other machine still get error 65

now i did find a work round if i flash the drive in the 360 using the power from it and the serial disconnected and my via-6421 card connected to the drive if i hot swap the sata cable after the flash with out powering it down it will recogninse in the 360 eject and close even attempt to read discs unsuccessfully i might add.

now i have tried to give you guys as much info as i can because i could use somehelp in trying to this figure out is all lost on this drive or is there some way back?

U could do mtkflash w /sata orig.bin for restore. I used the 3.0 legal patch ie copied origin.bin to xtreme30.bin. Then ran the patcher over xtreme30.bin and then flashed the sammy. Worked like a charm on a NF3 mobo. Your problem could be caused by your sata setup. Seen a post describing a similar condition was solved by using a mobo with different sata bridge apparently some units read ok but make errors on write flash.

Had the same prob b4 flashed 30-40 times but always get err 65, i guess my TS ms25 died in the process, had to return my 360 to wallmart and get a new one, no probs on the new one, got it working on the first try, good luck man...
