I know the answer to this is somewhere on this forum, but I’ve trawled for a while and got bits and pieces, so I thought I’d ask in the hope that someone can give me a definate answer.
I tried to flash my LTR-12101B using the LS233J.EXE windows flasher from Lite-On. Being the first time I’d done it, stupid me didn’t think to backup the old firmware first (I assumed the flasher would take care of that).
First attempt gave me a “Flash Timeout” message right at the end. Second attempt locked the PC up completely, so I had to hold my breath and hit the reset button…
My BIOS then took ages trying to detect the drive before giving up and now it just says “Not Installed”. As an added pain my HD light is now stuck on.
Now, I’ve tried both MTKFLASH and PFLASH with a binary called LS17.BIN, but neither of them work - MTKFLASH does nothing at all, PFLASH does several “soft reset” attempts but still fails.
So - apparently there is one final trick with jumpering some pins? Can someone tell me exactly what to do here? Which pins? How long do I jumper them for? Switched off/on?
Any help to get my drive back greatly appreciated - I’ve been in the IT industry 10 years and never killed a bit of my own kit yet!
