Help With Ms28 Detection/flashing.!
Posted 06 December 2006 - 12:46 PM
I have successfully flashed several Hitachi drives for friends using the onboard SATA connection but I have now come across my first Samsung (ms28) drive.
I've tried to get the onboard SATA to recognise the Sammy, to no avail. I think I've tried nearly every Tutorial anywhere.
I bit the bullet and purchased a VT6421A PCI card as was being recommended by everyone on forums. The problem was that when I installed the card and turned on my PC I was met with the prompt that No DVD/CD roms detected in the computer ( I have 3). This made it difficult to install card as the drivers are on a CD. After about 2 hours of messing about I finally gave up as i couldn't get my roms recognised when the PCI card was installed, but when I removed card, all worked fine.
Do I need to install driver to get card to work in DOS? How do I get PC to recognise card? and how do I get card to detect ms28 Sammy.
Thanks in advance

Disconnect all drives and disable in bios. Set floppy as first boot device.
After typing A:\ type "mtkflash r /m orig.bin when it says Please Wait... I turned off my xbox, counted to 10, turned on, and it started reading the ms28. Its all about timing. I have a bootable floppy i can link with everything needed for this method if u want. It has 4.2b firmware.
Burn to floppy with Winimage. www.winimage.com
It takes a long time after you type x360sam orig.bin xtrem42b.bin hacked.bin
I thought it was looping or something. Just let it run till finished.
Make a few backups of orig.bin for saftey and future firmwares.
