So the Pro is mandatory? Can I use the ck3 pro and probe 3? Just plug the sata into my cpu. Thanks.
The pro X360USB Pro is not mandatory. But you must have a compatible Sata. if the sata on your Motherboard, (Not CPU - Central Processing Unit) is not compatible. Then the X360USB is your best bet.

And you can use the CK3 Pro and Probe 3 on their own. Guide is in the tutorials section

Yeah mobo. I flashed a benq with my mobo so i am sure its cool. My follow up question is what drives REQUIRE the pro? Just the slims?

I am having trouble hooking the cables up. When connecting the probe end of the power cable to the DVD drive the lights on the CK3 and probe go out as if it creates a shortage or something.

To be clear, the cable connections look exactly like on the picture, however, when the drive is connected to the CK3 with the Probe power cable, the CK3 turs off it's blue light and the probe's green light also goes out. Unplugging the drive restores the LEDs into working condition again.

Are you absolutely sure you are connecting the cable the correct way round.

Although there are two notched ridges to make it difficult to insert them incorrectly. It is not impossible. And some people still manage to do so by accident.

If you are doing everything correctly. then you may have a faulty probe. Ask your retailer about it.

I double checked and all notches are aligned correctly

Molex -> CK3 -> Probe -> DVD
USB -> X360P -> DVD

Also I have never used it before so it may be some sort of pre-existing condition, it's brand new from modtraders.

Then speak to modtraders about the issue. And go about getting a replacement. if that does the same. Then it could be the ck3.

You need to rule out one before you can rule out the other. Like any troubleshooting issue. One thing at a time. As the probe seems to be causing the issue, start there and work your way back afterwards

Well the Probe itself (not the cable) seems irrelevant to the problem. When connecting with the regular power cable from the CK3 to the DVD I can eject the tray and everything so yes it seems to be related to the Probe power cable. I'm going to send a mail or w/e to Modtraders.

EDIT: Solved. The cable was manufactured the wrong way around, (pegs were "upside down") will post pictures after flashing is complete. Solved by removing pegs.

EDIT 2: Link to thread with pictures:

Ive flashed my drive before, going to get the probe 3 (v2 is broke, not exactly great build quality) and my friend wants me to flash his drive, liteon 7 blah blah. Now the way i did it before was sata straight to motherboard, worked fine... will i be able to do this one same way or do i need to throw even more money at you guys by buying that USB thing???

Oh, and love how the geeks at JF are calling it Phatkey... Fat spelt P H, those geeks are sooo cool!

hello, i currently have :
ck3
usb360pro
probe 3

i have tried flashing 2 lt 93450c without any problems, but now i have 1 74850c that give me some problems...

this drive already have lt 1.1 on it, and i want to upgrade it using the latest lt... the problem is this drive is originally is not flashed by me...

so when i tried extracting the key using the probe (on the tutorial part A), i got a message saying that the serial data is not complete, and i have to enter the serial data manually...

i already found the bar codes location and planning to enter it to JF and flash this drive with the latest lt...

so my question is, did i do it correctly, i don't want to mistakenly flashed a wrong firmware on this drive... i have read to be able to extract the dvd key fully we have to dump the firmware with an MRA hack... do i still need to do it with my current setup (ck3, usb360pro, probe 3)

thanks in advance... :D

Look here, there has already been a few people asking about the barcodes and serials.

Also, quote from Dale, Eminent 360 Guru Master.

"Your AP2.5 games will not work with the new dash & LT+1.1, Full stop. As for repairing with barcode, If its missing in the first place then it is not required, Full stop.
If it ever pops up again, click YES to first warning box, then click NO to the next warning box. Sorted."

Also another quote from the one and only Martin C

"Jungleflasher advises you that the barcode serial data isn't present. It doesn't mean it's actually missing. If the original read didn't have the data, you don't need to add it (think about it this way: You're adding extra information which wasn't there in the original dump - is this a good or bad thing?)."

you can buy the conversion pmt cable and all you would need to do is hook it up to your probe v2 to make it a v3
