in the "Liteon Key For Free!, how to dump your liteon using salvaged parts"
topic some one posted a diagram and I have a couple of questions on it. I hope some one could help me. I just copied the post I posted in that topic. The post was too complicated for that topic.---Original Post---
ok guys just one question. If i use the following schematic which was posted earlier in this thread:
SO all I need to do is connected the Tx from the drive (transmission from DVD drive) to the Rx of the schematic above (Receiving with the schematic). Am I right until now?
So as we are only receiving information from the LiteOn drive and we are not transmitting something through the serial port I do not need to connect the Tx from the schematic above to anything. Right???
Now all I am left with is the 3.3V and GND of the schematic. So is it true that i could just connect those to pin 6 (for 3.3v) and pin 5, 7, 9 or 11 (for GND) to the DVD's power connector??? I mean the following connector.
I am new to all of this and so kind of trying to understand my question is just did I understand it correctly now?
The only question left for me now (if I understand this correctly) where can I find a DVD power plug as illustrated above. so lets say a converter which would convert the power from my computer's PSU to such a plug so I can powerup the DVD player without the need of my xbox.---End Original Post---
As you can see I am not totally into this stuff, I am a little noob on the field but trying to learn some stuff. I found a schematic showing the pin layout of the DVD power plug. I could also build a simple button on the PCB to have an eject button if i am right.
Hopefully some one can help me out with this, thanks in advance.
