hi guys i want to reflash my hitachi drive with LT+ but i sold me pc i use to flash me xbox sometime back now all that we use in the house is lappys but non have a sata external i know you can buy a PCMIA VIA card with VIA VT6421 Chipset to do this.

what i wanted to know was i have a external caddy which carrys any sata HDD you want
for extra storage would it be possible to use the motherboard connections out of the external caddy with the sata connection hook that to my 360 drive use the power of the 360 and hook up to my lappy via the usb the caddy has on the back it also uses a external power supply not like some that power up through the usb ????
plz dunna flame me its just a mad idea that would seem to work as the lappy should pick the hitachie drive up the same way as a hdd or dvd/rw
im using this LOOOOOOL

Lol nice find! This actually might help me b/c the pc I use to flash my xbox's with is actually my bro's, and he might be taking it with him when he moves out. I think i have one of those caddys somewhere...

Actually, now that I think about it, would an xsata work? I bought one of those back when modding files on the HDD was the only thing people knew how to do. It has a sata connection and a mini-usb connection on there... This would be amazing if it could work through an xsata.

this is awesome, I've seen a couple of setups trying to flash via a laptop, but by far non were as easy as this.
Great post, thumbs up smile.gif

My caddy does have a power supply through usb though

Lol, it's crazy ideas like this that inspire people to keep messing around until they've got a fix. Good work, definitely useful for those without towers.
