I have a Liteon iHAS324-98B drive and the x360usb pro hooked up. The usb pro is recognized by my computer fine and works as i have already flashed my xbox with it. But the Drive does not seem to be getting any power. It does’nt come up on my computer and I cant eject the tray. Can someone please help me. Im using a macbook running windows 7 ultimate 32 bit through bootcamp. -Thanks

Do you have a power source attached? The usbpro isn’t a source of power to the drive, thats what the CK3 or CK3i is for. Or a cheaper option is to buy an external molex power supply and get a molex to sata adapter. I think my power supply cost $10 and they threw in the adapter free.

I’m just saying…sounds like a power, or lack of, issue. Starting at the source?

J4eva said that the usb pro will power external drives also though. He said its a sata to usb controller with a few addons ;) . I just plugged a old power supply into it and im still not getting any power to it. I bought a 4pin molex to 15pin sata adapter for the old power supply to work with the new drive and it still doesnt work. remember this is the external drive for the custom burner fw not a xbox drive. My question is can I use a normal pc power supply or do i need to buy a smaller molex power adapter. If i just get that smaller power afdapter do i need the ck3 to turn the drive on and off or can I just use the adapter.
