Yeah i did wonder about that 'a' in the media id, but like you say this is uncharted water... anybody having constant problems veryifying with imgburn should try it manually and set max read speed to 4x.

i didn't enable force hyper tuning and online hyper tuning when i flashed originally and now feel that i need to, so i figure i'll have to reflash. Am i correct? if i need to relfash the drive should i flash it back to the stock firmware first and then reflash with these options enabled?

Yes I would treat it the same as an xbox drive. Revert back to stock and reflash that way you know that you have done everything correctly.

It's like you didn't even read the guide at all.

There's no need to equate it to an Xbox drive and cause further confusion. It's not like you need to flash to stock to re-install Windows.

Excellent tutorial, thank you so much. Got it all ordered now.

I'll be using mine with a laptop and was just wondering if anyone knows of where i can pick up a decent external enclosure for the drive?

Many thanks.

lol - yes - the x360USBpro only transmits data - to power the iHAS you need an SATA power cable

I would hazard a guess they are MKM-001, yes

Iv been searching these models to buy at the likes on ebay but cant find them, is there another name they are called?

Iv been reading the MKM-001 's have problems sometimes whereas the MKM-003 seems to be flawless is that correct?

Im trying to find these.

Best Regards :smile:

Legend man! many thanks!

Should we always write at 4x instead of 2.5?

And do these settings both apply to the xd2 and xd3 security?

Again thanks for your help, im finally getting answers to the things iv been curious about for a while.

Iv just ordered everything ya see, the xboxusb pro mega bundle, lite on dvd burner, discs.

Gonna be doing the jungle flasher to put lt 2.0 on my xbox then burn my most wanted game BF3 and play it online xD
