Hey everyone, well I posted on xbox-scene as well as TeamXecuter's forum. But no-one seems to reply, I don't think my questions are that hard, so please if anyone can help. I'd greatly applicate it!
Ok so first off, I want to be able to create/burn/play backups. My 360 is currently in repair (so as I'll say later, Idk what my drive type is.. but i'm pretty sure its Hitachi) to get fixed for the disk scratching problem (hence why I want to play my backups, becuase I'm tired of my disks getting scratched).
1.) So for creating my backups. I bought a Samsung SH-D162C DVD Drive from ebay (read that its the best to create the backups) and I'm just going to use Xbox Backup Creator software
2.) For burning backups, I bought the Pioneer 112D DL DVD Drive (heard it was exactly the same basictly as the 111D, and again was the best option). Again using the Xbox Backup Creator software. Using "Verbatim 8.5GB 2.4X~6X DVD+R DL" DVDs
3.) For playing them, I know obviously I need to hack the firmware. Again I'm not sure what the drive looks like, but I'm pretty sure its Hitachi (but if its not... can you please tell me what I need to do differently if its a Samsung!), but to make things easier I bought a Blaster360 so I can hopefully flash my 360 without having to open my 360 everytime I want to flash my drive. I also bought a generic SATA to USB adapter, so I can use a USB port rather then using a SATA port (which are only on my mother board). Now the problem lies in that I didn't know I had to get external power source... so I was lookin at a Molex Power Supply, but all seems to be from the UK, and also seems WAY to expensive (the one from Xecuter at least), so whast my option for that? Does anyone know where to get a cheap one from a US site, or where I can get a looong molex cable so I can have it plugging out of my computer)
I can answer any questions in my power, or post links to stuff I am buying, but I really would like some help form people who know. I want to be able to give back to the "Scene"/community but I can't seem tog et into it yet (I have a nicely hacked Xbox1, now trying to do so with my 360)
If this info is useful (for SATA or Molex) I have a custom built Dell PowerEdge 400SC
