Your going to need a USBpro for your laptop to recognize your 360 dvd drive. Also your going to need a ck3pro/ck3i to power on your 360 dvd drive (It helps to have a ck3pro/ck3i when you need to power cycle the drive, Because the 360 as power source does not do this well). You may also need a probe v3 to get your key if you dont already have it.So youre saying i need to get the x360usb pro.
And can i just update my xbox by usb or disc?, will it then revert to normal stock firmware and not play backups?
This ^^ also.n its always best to return to stock b4 installing any dash update.
