Although that card IS the absolute best to use to flash your MS25 or MS28 Xbox 360 Samsung DVD-ROM drive, I hear it's not super easy to get it to detect the drive. I highly reccomend doing this because this is what a friend told me to do, but I have yet to try it. Put a plain old CD or DVD rom connected by IDE cable to that extra IDE jack in the middle of the card. Also if you want to do this extra: he actually built a box that just has a single HDD attached to the IDE bus on the motherboard and DOS 6.22 running on it. Then the only other thing in the computer is that SY-VIA-150 PCI SATA card with a CD-ROM drive attached by IDE cable to that IDE port in the center of the card and then the 1 SATA cable running to the back of the Samsung drive. I know that for MS28 the CD-ROM drive on the IDE port is absolutely necessary, but I think this may also help you with your drive detection problem in this case.

I found what worked for me was getting the Toshiba-Samsung Autoflasher 3.2 Archive. From there, there is a folder with certain types of chipsets. In the VIA folder, i copied MTFLASH.exe and MTKFLASH.TY (i think that's right?) to my bootable floppy.

I connected everything making sure the Sata cable was connected to the port that reads CH1. (I found I could not get CH2 to work)

Boot from floppy
At command prompt, boot 360 ... wait 10-20 seconds
type mtkflash r /m orig.bin

This is where ull see if your drive is being detected
Mine did, but i was having a problem with it hanging, which I fixed by putting the drive in 0800 mode.

Hope this helps a little
