    Ok I have been all around the internet and I have a few very specific questions about flashing a samsung ms25 so here we go...

    1.instead of installing a sata chipset to connect my dvd drive to the pc, can I just use this product - http://www.cooldrives.com/seatatousb20.html

    2.what would be reccomended for flashing, using blaster 360 or just connecting the usb to sata to the drive itself and flashing?

    3.I had planned on using ixtreme 1.6 Im about to check the latest ixtreme I can find correct me if im wrong but isnt ixtreme 1.6 the latest ixtreme out?

    4. if the answer to #1 is yes, how would that connect to the dvd drive? it doesnt look compatible with the sata port on the dvd drive.

    if you know the answer to any of these, an answer would be extremely helpful as I feel im capable of doing this but havnt done this before, I figured I had to start somewhere.

    You'll most likely brick your dvd drive if you try flashing it with that sata to usb adapter. I tried dumping my drive key with one of those on my laptop to see if it would work and it doesnt retrieve valid keys.

    If you want to risk ruining your xbox go ahead and try, but id say just find a friend with native sata ports on their computer and just use theirs.

    Oh and yeah, 1.6 is the most recent

    ok thanks. do you think there is ANY possibl way to connect my samsung drive to the computer without sata?

    You can get a VIA card from ebay but you'd still have to open your computer to install it (its very very very simple though, you just have to put the card into a slot and you're set).

    No the connectivity kit is so you can power your dvd drive without it having to be connected to the xbox 360
