Wondering if anyone has dumped the system FW from the main board using an EPROM Programmer? Could ya share the TSOP DUMP?
Was trying to update the system FW via the CD I created from LITEON’s site, and it crapped out at “A3”. Would like to compare the file I downloaded from LITEON, with the actual dump of the 29LV160 TSOP.
i.e. in hopes of using hexedit to create my own DUMP, based on what I downloaded. (I know it’s the correct version based on my SN, etc). Won’t boot any further than the dreaded HELLO now.
I do know, based on this forum, (awesome forum btw) that the drive and system board have plenty of problems, and support from LITEON is crappy at best.
Using a real dump, I may be able to resurrect the system board by flashing the TSOP directly with my Flash Programmer (Needhams EMP-20).
My SN, 0104-1840-0090-BSOY (103-010D)
and the system FW I downloaded was LNHA1098.ES5
Where BSOY = the FW of the replacement LITEON 1633S Drive I was using at the time. Yes, the original DDW-451S drive had died a long time ago, like everyone else.
