    Lite-on iHas124b with x360usb pro and sata power adapter help.

    Hey, I have a flashed lite-on xbox drive and I wanted to burn XGD3 discs so I purchased a lite-on iHas124-04 b dvd burner and I wanted to flash it with iXtreme Burner Max firmware. I did not know that it would not come with a sata power cord so I bought this one and used it with a molex power supply:
    Amazon.com: Molex to SATA Power Adapter Cable, 6 inches: Computers & Accessories
    I already had the x360usb pro to connect it to my toshiba satellite A305-S6872 running Windows 7 Ultimate. I used the x360usb pro to flash my lite-on drive that is in my xbox so that is not the problem - the x360usb pro drivers are installed. When I connected everything to my laptop it recognised it for a second and started to automatically install the driver software but then suddenly it said it failed and said the drive was disconnected. The drive will power up and spin a disc but even after disconnecting and connecting it will not show up in my computer. I looked online and found out some reasons for the drive not being recognised would be not getting enough power and something wrong in the registry. I followed the steps to delete that part of the registry but it still will not connect so I thought it might be the power supply. I inspected the molex side of the sata power adapter. One of the pins was loose so I carefully disconnected it from the white plastic piece. The wire that the pin is holding seemed out of place so I popped it back into place but the connection seems fine. Before I did this the drive would suddenly loose power when I moved the power adapter slightly. I am not sure if buying a new sata power adapter would help even though this one was brand new. If you have any suggestions PLEASE let me know! I would like to avoid buying a new one and having the same thing happen, although I cannot have the drive loose power while burning a disc or it will just be yet another coaster. I posted photos of the two black wires after I took off the white plastic part. Thanks!!

    I am using a molex power supply that plugs into the wall. I don't want to return it and get the same problem back though. Also I unhooked it from the white plastic part, I'm pretty sure I can put it back in but I hope that doesn't matter. I think I am just going to buy another one and return the first one after I get the new one. I'm just not sure whether or not to get the same one.

    So what say you guys? Should I buy the same exact one from Amazon or should I buy one from somewhere else? I am of course returning the defective product but am not sure if I should get the same one. I understand that molex can be flimsy but I don't see this happening again. It is also cheap and has Amazon prime 2-day shipping.

    I did see that one too, would I be better off getting that one even though I'll only be using one of the satas? Or should I just try my luck and get the same one?
