I tried to update my GE20NU10 drive which originally came with fw EE05 using the newly released unofficial EE06 firmware.
However the EE06 firmware flasher does not see my GE20NU10 drive with firmware EE05 on board giving the "Can't find the target drive." message. There's no drive present in the flasher's drop down list at all. (Figure 1)
The relevant DiscInfo output is provided below:

This seems like a bug to me ... has anyone managed to update their drive with this flasher?
Interestingly enough the GE20LU10 FE06 unofficial flasher which came out at the same time as the EE06 firmware for the GE20NU10 seems to be completely unlocked and one can pick up any drive from the drop down list (even non LG drives) and the "Update" button is always active for any drive... (Figures 2 & 3)
Is there a bug in the EE06 flasher? Can anyone see any explanation/solution/workaround for the "Can't find the target drive." message?
