[QUOTE=C0deKing;2204167]I’m glad your drive is going again. It’s never a waste of my time. In fact I can now see that when the drive is in boot mode, my flash utility is using some commands that are not supported, so I will now check this and update the utility.
I would suggest that you download the 7L0F EOHT firmware again, as there is a good chance that your download is corrupted. ;)[/QUOTE]
I’m glad that you think so, i am of the opinion that failures always teach you something.
I downloaded the 7L0F EOHT again and flashed it, but alas, same thing again, my drive again went to sleep. I again had to flash it with LtnFLash using the original Moser Baer firmware that i had and then flash it with Liteon 7L0E. One more thing, when the drive goes to sleep and if i flash it directly with the LiteOn 7L0E, the flash fails and the drive is still in a coma. I need to flash it first with the original Moser Baer and then with Liteon7L0E.
Maybe this might tell u something further about these crc checks.
Thanks once again, and i think i will stay with 7L0E for now.
