ok thanks for the reply
1. i am aware that i might fry my drive, but i'll just get another drive if that happens, its no biggie for me
2. even if my dvd drive is not compatible, i should still be able to flash it
can anyone explain why it failed to initialize device? maybe its my chipset, but if my chipset was not compatible, how did it identify and query that device in the first place, or does the chipset only pertain to the actual flashing and not the querying for devices, my pc identified and found my xbox dvd drive just fine, so what am I doing wrong?
i was thinking this wasn't compatible but that doesnt explain why i cant still flash it period, on the knowledge base wiki, it lists the samsung/toshiba sdg-605F as one of the compatible drives for the hack... so i'm confused
the reason it also failed to backup my firware in dos is because it couldn't initialize the device, that's my hunch, what should I do to make it initialize?
perhaps its the way of "hotswapping it"
can anyone explain the steps they did in hotswapping theirs, i read several tutorials but app. i'm doing something wrong
