I recently bought an Xbox 360 slim and wanted to flash the lite-on DG-16D4S 1071 DVD drive. I have looked online how this can be done and ran into JungleFlasher. I have read the tutorial but I seem to be having difficulties with the flashing process. What I have done is opened up my 360 and tried hooking up the SATA port from the lite-on to my on-board SATA plug. I don't know if I am doing this the right way since I have run into people discussing drilling(?) and modifying certain parts of their drive. Anyways, I have tried to hook it up to my PC's on-board SATA port and I kept getting the 0x51 error while trying to get the SlimKey. Also I have noticed the "DVD Key" says something similar to not found (both on my 32bit PC). On my 64-bit PC, it can't even recognize the DVD drive. I have then bought a 3-to-1 SATA/IDE-to-USB adapter (read online that it might work, bought a Vantec $20 cheap one), and unfortunately, it doesn't even show up on the 32-bit PC but shows up with troubleshoot icon in win7 device manager on my 64bit PC. But again, the JungleFlasher doesn't detect anything (except my current DVD drives).
For those wondering:
I am currently running Win7 Pro 64 (portio64 working), but also have tried on my other PC running Win7 Pro 32.
The Xbox is powering the Lite-on drive.
haven't opened the DVD drive itself.
The SATA-USB comes w/o drivers, the drive shows up (in device manager and "device and printers") only when the i connect the drive and it is powered on with a troubleshoot icon and says it has failed to start.
I am currently trying to avoid (and save 60$) but if I have to, I might consider getting the "Xecuter CK3i", if it will help me flash my lite-on. Also if I do buy it, would it require anything else (excluding JF)? A tutorial for that would also be handy.
Sorry for the long and noob-ish questions, I'm new to flashing Xbox's.
If someone can point me to the right direction, redirect me to a more basic but thorough tutorial, or any information, please let me know... I currently feel like I have wasted my time and money on this.
Thanks in Advance,
