Not that I know of but there is a solution I conjured up for my friends laptop. Buy the lite on drive Ihas xxx B and get this to work with it.

It turns your Sata into a USB cd/dvd drive. I’ve flashed the drive to the new Ixtreme using this device and it works perfectly.

im pretty sure I have all the files you need also for the drive flashing. If you go this route let me know and I can email you them all in a zip folder.

yep ebay has them pre-flashed ready to go, includes ac adaptor and a fan in a good quality case with usb jack, let me find it here > 220885900599 < . it's the same liteon inside we are all used to. seller says only 1 left but i think he will make more. just watch out for fw, if it changes here then he will have to change it too i guess.

Dont pay extra for a pre flashed. Flashing this drive is literally mindless and easy. Very very very simple process. There are tons of options to case an internal making it an external. If you have a local frys or microcenter go there if not newegg or amazon. I’m sick of seeing jerks profit off other peoples hard work. Like those who flash or sell backups. C4eva and the team do this for free so any money should go to them not someone exploiting their hard work!

yea seriously, if your gonna do anything, go with my method, cuz if the firmware changes you can update it yourself. I’ll give you all the tools needed, as well as them being on sites like this or xbox360iso.com . buying pre done limits what you can do in the future. just buy the internal IHAS124B and that SATA/IDE to usb connector and do it yourself, its so simple of a process a caveman could do it.

The process is pretty simple – if you’ve got a SATA drive (burner or HDD) you’ll need a SATA connection and a power source. You can get a two-in-one (external enclosure) if you’d like; seems to be a simple solution some folks prefer. Just keep in mind that not all SATA connection methods are created equal!

My method is to use the X360USB PRO as my SATA –> USB connection and a molex PSU w/a molex –> SATA power cable (PSU retails for $10 or less and the molex –> SATA is usually $0.99 or so). Everything works without a hitch and, more importantly, every backup I’ve burned so far has easily exceeded the criteria for a solid burn.

Put your ihas in this From Newegg and you are good to go. With it being usb 3.0 ready, it is ready for the future also.
