I bought an IT8212F based card to use with optical devices. The manufacturer is Titan Electronics -> http://www.titanelectronics.com/
The card came with RAID BIOS on it. This card doesnÂ´t detect optical devices in RAID mode. So I tried to flash the ATAPI BIOS to it. It has an SST 39SF010 flash chip. I am sure this chip is programable. ITE says their flash tool support this chip. However the flash tool canÂ´t read nor write to it. The tool reads and empty file while backing up. And the flash procedure fails at the verifying stage. The original BIOS version is always on the card.
So I am stuck with a card I canÂ´t use, since I donÂ´t need RAID.
I have e-mailed both Titan Electronics and ITE last week, without an answer until now.
Is there anyone who can give some help? Some aditional information is welcome.
Thanks in advance.
