Not sure think it was something like a lite-on i'm gonna flash my 360 myself as ive been told its fairly straight forward, would this thing replace the CK3 thing and probe, also would it go inside the 360 case or externally ? thanks for your help mate

Right - this device was really designed to be used with Hitachi-LG and Toshiba-Samsung drives. All it does is externalise the SATA port enabling you to reflash without opening the case - nothing else. It replaces the top grill of the 360. You'll still need a way to retrieve the data from the lite-on (either by a connectivity kit and probe, or by soldering a bridge in conjunction with a TTL RS232 reader). Furthermore, I think you'll have issues using this device with a Benq / Lite-on so I wouldn't even recommend it. You'll also need a VIA SATA 6421A chipset to erase/flash the drive after you've successfully retrieved the DVD-key and serial number.

It IS straightforward provided you have the kit to do it. Personally (and I'm not just saying this!) I'd take it to someone to get the initial flash to the latest firmware (iXtreme 1.51, 1.6 coming very soon) and once you're at this firmware level, you won't need the probe any more. To reflash, all you'd need is a VIA SATA 6421A card and a copy of JungleFlasher - you can power the drive from the console itself. You should also get a copy of the firmware data from whoever does the drive (ask in advance) so it's a complete failsafe. Even if you were to 'brick' the drive, it can be easily recovered using the saved data.

Unless you are going to be flashing your 360 multiple times and don't want to keep opening the case then this item is superfluous.

Cheers just saved me some money :thumbsup: as would of ordered it blindly, i have no-one to take it to flash and seems a lot of hassle sending it places i think i'll just buy this kit (http://www.kanection.co.uk/product.php/1110/0/) and follow a tutorial really closely, thanks for your help mate

No....

There's another reason for externalising the sata. When copying games the internal drive is always the most reliable method , rather than flashing one of the Samsungs with the kreon firmware.
Using the internal 360 drive works every time, even on stubborn scratched games.
