I have tried for about 10 hrs with no success to flash this thing with Xtreme bootmaker, and I even bought the VIA chipset. I think I may be losing my mind as when I turn off the XBOX and hit the primary, it only says: Port: 8c00, Master/Slave:a0 There is no mention of the "pause" and the port error mentioned in "Hacking the Xbox 360 for Dummies Guide". It obviously is not recognizing the drive, and I don't understand how to get it to. PLEASE HELP If you need anymore information, send a reply or PM. Thank you for any help!!!
