Hi All,
Xbox was in stand-by (power brick connected). I tried to plug power connector to Hitachi 79 drive, I most likely tried to plug it in upside down. At that moment xbox powered up by itself, and I felt heat with my fingers. I switched xbox off, took a look at the connector, found notches and plugged it correctly. But drive doesn't open since then, however computer's BIOS and Jungle Flasher still recognize it. I don't need a key in it.
Is it fixable ?

perfect example of why it is recommended that you use a proper connectivity kit such as a ck3 mini, ck3 pro, ck3 lite, or a ck3i.

I guess those kits won't help if you try to plug power connector upside down when the box is connected to a power supply.
