hi, i was wondering if jungle flasher is supposed to be able to detect and/or flash your drive while plugged into x360usb pro2 without using any external power source (ie. just through usb) because i have been getting malformed data returns and have always used either an old xbox or an external ide type power supply and with only usb its not detected, but ive heard it said that you dont need external power in 99% of cases unless your usb supplies weak power?

i know its a silly question but just thought id ask.

cheers

yea its from an old ide usb enclosure, its got the black, red, black, yellow wires and im using the molex to sata cable that came with the x360usb. sorry i got the name wrong, lol. and i guess its pretty obvious that you DO NEED AN EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY of some sort other than the usb, lol. just thought id ask since i am having problems. cheers

Yes, like Martin said, you need an External Molex PSU.

Check out Xconsoles, they sell the best quality Molex PSU. I bought one for my V2, and it works perfect. The x360usb V2 does so many things , once connected to an external Molex PSU.
