My understanding is the only reason that we are able to get the 360 to think a drive is a true MS drive is that the WD dives firware is flashed so when the 360 looks at it, it sees what it thinks is the official drive by reading the hddss from the firmare not location 16-22.
You cannot just manually put that data on sectors 16-22 of any drive. I also tried that but until it is flashed with that info in it, it will not work. hddhackr would have to be able to flash your samsung drive to make it work and it does not support that.
So unless you are able to figure out how to manually flash that drive, you are out of luck.
If you do happen to make that happen, let us know!

does anyone have any idea why xbox360 wont recognized the harddrive if i used WinHex to copy manually the sectors 16-22 on the harddrive ?
i used the hddhackr tool to mod the WD harddrives....but i tried to mod some samsung drives and the hddhackr only works with WD so i used WinHex to open the drive and place the sectors manually but for some reason xbox360 wont see the drive .....
anyone ? any idea why ?
