    I'm Getting A PCI Card Within The Next Few Days So I Have Been Reading Up On Tuts And Things

    And I Read In The Jungleflasher Tut That Using The 360 As A Power Source Will Log In The OS That The Dvd Drive Was Not Being While Powered Up Leading To A Ban

    I Have A Spare 360 That Has No Video Output Could I Use That As A Power Source Instead Of The Box That The Drive Belongs?

    Cheers

    Yes you can mate , its the best way to do it if you dont have a connectivety kit .
    Remember when you connect up to the pc that the xbox chassis is touching the pc for ground, and that you have the AV cables connected on your xbox to stop it shutting down.

    The drive is only out when using a connectivity kit.
    You would need a connectivity kit for Liteon drives.

    Benq , Toshiba Samsung , and Shitachis can all be flashed from within a chassis.
