    flashed it with the xtrmem52.a worked fine, now it seems to be having trouble with reading burned discs, i know the discs are fine cuz i run them on my other 360......
    but the samsung drive makes a funny noise while running, almost like somethin is rattlin or something....and it also started to smell funny( like burning) and when i took the disc out it was like it burnt the disc alil bit?? any thoughts on this

    Ms28 has some reading problem with 5.2....thats true according to my experience,,,,

    i do no soldering......i have ms 28, version A, which means i have to use 5.2A correct? now when im selecting the drive speed which is the best to select A B C or D? cuz i was reading other forums and it seems that its the discs themselves that cause the dirty disc errror, and it might be an issue with which speed to choose ABC or D? i selected A last time .....anyone have any thoughts on this?

    i choose 5.2C on all the drives i flash and have had no problem....
    and what r u talking about the drive speed is you flash 5.2a then thats the drivespeed if you choose 5.2c then you will use that drive speed...

    i flased my new ms 28 qith 5.2a and wroks perfect, via sata card makes it very easy, i would strongly recomend getting 1 if u plan on flashing a ms 28, not worth risking a 360 on the 2 wire trick, when the careds less then 15$

    and for the speeds look at the readme, i use olny verbs so i run my games at 12x (5.2a) i would suggest that if u plan on using verbs unless u dont like a slightly nosie drive

    yep heres the differences between a.b.c.d even though its in the f/w readme ><
    FOr Xtreme 5.2A backup Read Speed is always same as original game disks 12x. Original discs unaffected

    FOr Xtreme 5.2B backup Read Speed is always quiet/slow. Original discs unaffected.

    FOr Xtreme 5.2C default backup Read Speed is same as original game disks 12x. When Original Game disk is booted, all subsequent backup loading will be at Quiet/Slow Read mode, Original Game disks are unaffected. Turn console off/on to reset back to Default backup read speed (12x). Quiet/Slow Read Speed is for quiet operation and/or cheap DVD+R DL media.

    FOr Xtreme 5.2D default backup Read Speed is Quiet/Slow 2-4x. When Original Game disk is booted, all subsequent backup loading will be at Fast Read mode 12x, Original Game disks are unaffected. Turn console off/on to reset back to Default backup read speed for backups (2-4x).
