thanx for the reply Michael. yes it is sata drive and if you mean the stock frmware of my drive than yes i can flash it to drive but if stock of iHAS424Y than no.
i saw this post http://club.myce.com/f44/hp-dvd1270i-ihasxxx-300883/. this guy has the same drive as mine and he says that he crossflash the 1270r using the “ihas424y_zl1wbt_auto” firmware after modding it using a hex editor.
