LOL this is getting even more complicated than I thought it would
I will explain what the situation is:
I havenet had a connectivityKit.. Just a 360 Blaster ck3. I bought it because i didnt like the idea of having to rip my box open each time I wanted to update my firmware... Hadnt had any trouble with it at all, and updated to the latest samsung ixtreme firmware for the xgd3 update, and all was well... But something happened to the blaster, and it no longer functions as it should, and I am not getting a blank screen when I switch it over to "PC Mode"... So when I had to fix my DVD drive, I had to flash it with the A/V disconnected so that I could at least make it go blank. It isnt a good option, as it only stays on for about 5 mins as discussed on here before. Mad dash to get the drive read and then flashed. I am using the x360 usb pro to flash the drive, this is the only way I know how to flash the drive.. So this is the way I get Data side of connectivity.. But i dont know how to get power to the drive unless I use the Blaster.. I know you guys are saying "use molex", but the connector art the back for power doesnt look ANYTHING like a molex 4 pin male/female socket...
I have bought an IHAS drive and i am using it externally in a 5.25" casing, and it works perfectly with my laptop. I am even getting good burns of my images! I was having trouble with the xgd3 disks, but really, you need to play around with the settings until you get good copies.. I did waste 4 discs trying other peoples methods and settings.. basically I just went back to default settings, and only changed the settings with that button down the bottom right of imageburn and enabled a few of the Lite-on features.
So basically the external casing has sata power/sata data which i am using for my IHAS drive.. Powered by AC, and plugs in to laptop via USB, heres the link for it:::http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/5-25-External-I...=item2c5408afd0
really good pickup.. I have seen them for upward of $100 Australian here in country, so i think it is a really decent price.. It also came with a female 4 pin connector,and another ribbon for 3.5" hard drives i can only imagine.. I just do NOT understand how this 4 pin molex hooks up to the rear of the XBOX's Samsung drive.. on the rear of the samsung drive, there is the sata data (I guess male) connection, and a power inlet for im guessing molex.. It is a male connector, and the stock xbox lead is a female lead with a 10 pin white connector.. Oh its all to confusing.. I am sorry...
lol what a hopeless case
