Sorry for the late reply, I’ve been putting off trying to repair the drive. This is because it’s been hard to track down where I got the firmware from and what I did to flash it onto the drive.
Initially I thought I’d be able to find out what I’d done by going back to my client’s computer on which I flashed the drive and looking at browser history etc. but it turned out that that was pretty much a waste of time as all the files and info there were what I’d already found on my own PC.
The firmware I used can be found here; I also found another archive on archive.org (the original website it was hosted on, which seems to be connected to Artec, gives a 404) but it is corrupt. This latter one would have been really helpful as its contents include a batch file which the former does not. As I result I ran the executable in the OK archive with the switches I thought were correct; of course they turned out to be wrong.
At some point I found a PDF with instructions on the correct command to use but I’ve been unable to come across that again since.
So, can anybody suggest a way I can recover this drive? I think I’ve used the correct firmware but just flashed it incorrectly; can I use the same executable to fix the drive and/ or does anyone have the other archive I mentioned? It contains the files B52V182A.bin, comboa.exe and Fw.bat .
Again, many thanks.
