So here's the deal:

I was modding my Samsung ms28 (spoofing as ms25) to the latest firmware. I plugged in my power cable one pin over to the left (looking straight at it from behind) by accident and bam E65. I KNOW this isn't a bad flash as I've been able to reflash it since (keep reading.) I also know the key works because I used another drive to test it.

The drive still ejects when powered by my 360. However, it doesn't seem that the firmware can be read by the console or JF (drive properties at any time; flash properties are read when the fw is dumped.) Even after I reflashed it the console still gives E65. I also flashed another console's key and tested it in that console and that one gave me E65.

Is it possible that JF is misreporting a successful flash?

And what exactly did I do when I plugged in the power cable one-pin over?

Well I'd attach a picture for you to see but what happened happened.

I've been reading around the forums about E65 errors and it appears that some people use alternate methods of flashing (using DOS instead of JF) to flash it. Why would that make a difference if Windows can't read the drive properties since that might indicate that the chip is damaged?

What is each pin on the power cable for (ground etc.)?

Thanks! I'll give this a read through for anything that might help fix this drive.
