Broken Lite-On DH-20A3S Drive After firmware update Crash



I was updateing my drive from the original firmware that came on it to the 9V6D everything went ok… until it froze!!! at the very end of the flashing process.

Now it wont even open the light just flashes and i cant re flash it with any other firmware version even the lite-on oem one, as it says contact manufacturer or something and wont flash is there any hope of fixing this?

Any HELP would be very apriciated



Usually, when a flash goes bad on a Sata drive, it is pretty much hosed.


Oh crud!


Thought I read somewhere that XSF can be used to recover SATA drives. Not true?


Never used it…


Whats xsf anyway
