The VIA VT6421A chipset is the exact chipset you need to connect your 360 to PC, so yes that card will work perfectly.
Keep in mind if your thinking of flashing your dvd drive, I think this chipset designed to only work with the TS-H943 and Phillips model.

    I'm unsure, i've only dealt with the TS-H943 models. However I hear 360mods.net has good tutorials and video guides that should hopefully help you better than I can.
    The only thing I could fine on my own was you definitely need a X360 USB with Connectivity Kit v2 to flash Hitachi drives.

How to resolve Xbox 360 disc read errors. Xbox will not play disc.


Is your xbox360 having trouble reading disc? In this guide I will provide some common solutions to help you fix your disc read issues.

1)Remove any memory devices or usb flash drives.
2)If the disc you are using is excessively scratched, this can cause the xbox to have trouble reading the disc. You can use a damp soft cloth to try and clean the disc. Grab the disc by the edges and using a soft damp cloth lightly wipe the disc from the center going outward.

3)Try removing your Xbox hard drive and then play a disc. Turn off the console. Locate the hard drive on the top of your system(depending on how you have it positioned). Press the release button on the hard drive.

If your system can read disc without the hard drive attached then you may need to replace the drive.

4)Clear the Xbox360 cache. Clearing the cache may remove updates to certain games. Keep this in mind.
Go to System Settings in the My Xbox menu. Select Memory, highlight your storage device and select Clear System Cache. Try and play the disc.

If after the above steps you are still having trouble. You may want to contact Microsoft Xbox live support to have your system serviced. You can find the support information in the link below,

How do I view a picture from an XBox harddrive whan that drive is hooked up to a PC (via SATA USB cable)?


I don't think you can view pictures from an Xbox on a PC. I'm almost certain that you can only view pictures from a computer on your Xbox. I may be wrong and if I am, your best bet is to set up a connection between your Xbox and PC using Windows Media Center.

How can I flash my xbox 360? it wont recognize the new dvd rom drive.


Disconnect all cables from the Xbox 360 and remove the faceplate from the front of the console. Lift the plastic tabs on the outer shell and remove the plastic casing from the machine. Unscrew the Torx size 7 screws and lift open the metal cover. Unplug both the power and SATA cables from the rear of the DVD drive and lift it out of the console. Replace it with the new DVD drive, and connect the power cable to the unit. Connect your SATA cable to the DVD drive and a free SATA port on your computer.Turn on your computer and open a web browser. Download JungleFlasher and run the program. As of September 2010, JungleFlasher is the most stable and up-to-date flashing program for Xbox 360, and it is also the only program capable of flashing Xbox 360 drives from within Windows (earlier programs used MS-DOS). Click "Flash .BIN to DVD" in the program's main menu and select your Xbox 360's DVD drive. The program will flash the new DVD drive for use with your Xbox 360 console.Turn off the computer once the flashing process is complete and disconnect your SATA cable from the DVD drive and your PC. Reconnect the Xbox 360 SATA cable to the new DVD drive, then close the metal cover on the console. Rescrew the Torx size 7 screws and replace the outer plastic shell on the Xbox 360. Return the faceplate to its original position then reconnect all external cables and accessories to the console. Power on the Xbox 360 and the replacement DVD drive will function normally.

Xbox 360 won't play old xbox games?


If your console is hooked up to Xboxlive and has a Hard Drive connected to it you will automatically be prompted to update upon insertion of the original Xbox title. Your console will restart when it's ready and you should be able to play.

*If you do not have a Hard drive you cannot play original Xbox titles.* The original Xbox Memory unit will not work in Xbox360 and the original Xbox games have no access to the Xbox360 memory units.

If you have a Hard Drive but your Xbox360 is not hooked up to the internet you can either order a disc for free from Microsoft by going Here

or burn the needed information onto a disc by going Here

The XBOX 360 can only be connected via an RJ-45 ethernet wire to the router unless you purchase the wireless adapter. The adapter can be bought at any accessory store such as walmart, Target, Gamestop, etc.

to play copied dvd's ( i think thats what you typed ), you will need to do a few things, including taking your xbox apart, and connecting it to your computer. You will also need to flash your dvd drive.

Quick NEED list:

1. SATA Cable
2. SATA Card
3. torx screw driver
4. torx 8 and 10 bits
5. Flash / Pen drive (USB)

To do this, your computer has to have some kind of SATA port. You can buy a SATA card for $25.00 at your local computer hardware store. Also make sure you pick up at least an 18 inch SATA cable. Now once you have both of these, then you will have to take your x-box apart.
