    i bought a pcmcia esata card for my laptop. now my question is when using conn kit, is esata cable to sata cable ok? or will there be issues because i was reading that usb doesnt currently work from dummy guide textbook so didnt know if i would have issues with esata. TIA.

    i am sure as long as it has the via 6421 chipset, you should be fine.

    I just got through flashing my 360 with my laptop and the easiest way I found was to use the X360USB. This is because I have the Hitachi drive though. If you have the Hitachi then this is the way to go with a laptop

    you could buy a USB > SATA device but that'll only work with early hitachi drives.. that's the only thing that can be used with a laptop if i remember correct

    ok i completed everything with success, the way i did it was:

    i used the textbook tutorial,
    I used esata card and ran esata cbl to sata cbl on 360.
    I got an old junk desktop i had and turned it on just so i could get a power supply from it for the xecuter conn kit. Then i hooked conn kit power to dvd-rom(that i pulled out of the 360 case) via the small cable included with kit. Then i booted up laptop in safe mode with networking(because i read somewhere that you needed to do that). Then i followed the textbook tutorial for flashing and everything worked. I have only 1 coaster in 6 tries. I have noticed that .dvd files work best with clonecd as my only coaster was .000 file with clonecd. Gonna try .000 file with xbox backup creator next to see if that works.

    I wonder if I use eSATA PCMCIA card on my laptop and a pcmcia device driver for DOS for the card, and then flash a samsung drive??
    Hmm....
    I want to do LG and SAMSUNG thru my lappy...
    I am PRETTY sure there is a dos driver for eSATA pcmcia cards..
    am I correct?

    i will tell you this, i was able to flash my hitachi drive with laptop and esata card but with samsung 25 flash, dos could never find my esata card and i read on here and other places that you cant with an esata card. That you have to have a via 6421L chipset.
