I'm new to the whole thing, but i've recently made a few backups of my originals with both my samsung ms25 & ms28.. afaik, you can rip it with any drive which has 0800 capability? Although i could be wrong..
I had the same problem for ages, turns out it was a combination of old via drivers & me not getting the drive into 0800 mode.. If you have standard 1.6 firmware installed, what you want to do is:
- Make sure everythings powered off
- Power on the xbox 360, eject the tray.. close it but hold it as it gets to be about half way in.. let it struggle for a couple of seconds until it stops pulling, then what you want to do is unplug your 360.. don't turn it off via the button (i've had more success this way)
- connect your sata cable from your DVD drive to your mobo or via card or w/e
- power on the pc
- Once loaded into windows and logged on, power on the 360.. allowing the disk drive to close itself (should have still been half open)
I believe you should also have PORT I/O installed, if you haven't allready.
Don't forget that sometimes if you've flashed it using jungle flasher, it will disable the drive, so you'll have to go into device manager and re-enable it.. but i doubt this is the case.
For my sammy to showup properly, all i have to do is boot into windows and boot the 360 in 0800 mode.. but i haven't had any experience with anything other than samsungs, but i would imagine it would be the same procedure?
