To start, I am attempting to crossflash a Plextor PX-L890SA to an iHAS224B in order to flash it with burner max firmware to back up Xbox 360 games.
My setup is an Xecuter USB Pro V2 and an external molex to sata power supply. With this setup I can see the drive just fine in Windows 7. I am using the Flash Utility and Eeprom Utility from codeguys.rpc1.org.
I am following this tutorial. http://www.team-xecuter.com/forums/showthread.php?t=87381
Now, I am able to read and save my flash and eeprom no problem. The problem is I am unable to write to my flash. I have attempted to write all of the unscrambled firmware packages for the iHAS B series drives from the codeguys site. The error I am getting is a pop up saying “Error writing flash to drive”. Then, the flash utility displays “Writing of flash failed” in the dialogue box.
I have read that with the USB Pro V2 you have to disable the ripping features in its code by running the update utility. Following this guide here - http://team-xecuter.com/forums/showthread.php?t=86585
I have tried doing that, and am still unsuccesful. Any ideas?
I know that when running these drives off of a sata connection on the pc that the controller has to be in IDE mode, but I did not think that was applicable to the USB Pro V2. Appreciate any help.
