    ok too things you need to understand first several new xbox 360 drives don't allow the flash firmware hack

    there however are updated firmwares from diffrent groups that get around this issue so you might want to try another firmware first

    yes but there are updated firmware versions depending on changes with the xbox live service try looking for other firmwares first and try those firmwares it might be your firmware is invalid and you may need to find another source

    we need more information...have you flashed the drive before? which firmware are you trying to flash? have you edited mtkflash to work with your SATA?

    Download the VIA drivers 5.30 (I believe) from Viaarena.com
    Depending on whether or not you guys have m28 or m25 drives, if you want the drive seen in dos then
    Use xtreme boot maker to set up floppy with hexedited mtkflash
    Hook SATA from 360 drive to SATA Card
    Turn on 360
    Turn on PC and boot to DOS with bootdisk
    At dos type mtkflash r /m /sata orig.bin
    It will then have an option for xtreme primary
    If using M28 turn off 360 then select xtreme primary, if m25 then keep 360 on and select.
    Wait 10-15 seconds on m28 drive then turn it back on. It should start reading
    If m25, it should start reading immediately
