well I tried your technique and it didn't work, it looks like that my drive is unusable at this point. It can't read any dvd, I have tried restoring my firmware from backups and it still wont work. I must say after I flashed my drive and restarted, windows 7 was installing drivers for the iHAS624 A
This is How I tried to restore my drive...
I wrote flash from the backup, then restarted
restored eeprom, restarted
inserted disk, no response
in crossflash, I converted my drive, restart, no response
uninstalled windows driver (device manager), reinstalled from an older backup, restarted,
noticed windows searching and installing another driver, still not working
I really don't know what has gone wrong here... maybe someone can help
I have all my backups and not sure if this will ever work.
nevermind... the restore worked
I didn't restart after restore-flashing my drive and then I restored the eeprom, then uninstalled my driver, restart and windows auto installs new driver... 3 mins later boom the drive comes alive.
Maybe flashing is not for me. Why do you guys need my backups?
