[QUOTE=cvs;2589879]OK, in that case try flashing the drive after you first put it in its ‘safe mode’ state:
- power down the drive (turn it off if its got an off switch at the back or remove the power cable) and disconnect the USB cable from the computer
- press the eject button of the drive and keep it pressed
- power on your drive while still keeping the eject button pressed
- wait 10 seconds
- release the eject button
- connect the USB cable to the computer
The drive should now be in safe mode and Windows will see it with a slightly different drive ID, which is perfectly normal. The BH08LS20 flasher should now work OK.
I know these drives have a rather more exotic eject ‘button’ so this might not work, but try it and see if it works or not first.
If the first method doesn’t work, then you’ll have to use DevilsClaw’s Renesas Flasher (http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=46137), which is a bit more complicated: first you’ll have to extract the firmware from the LG flasher package using the -r option. Then you can flash the main part of the *.bin firmware to the drive.
For either method it is important to power down the drive after flashing a new firmware.[/QUOTE]
ok, unfortunately booting in safe mode didnt work like you guessed i tried a few times and gave up.
I downloaded the software you mentioned and and extracted firmware. I have 2 files CORExxx.bin and MAINxxx.bin. I am looking at the readme txt but its a bit complicated. Which one of these 2 files am i going to use? Also in the read me it says something about dumping. I dont know what that means. What should i do now to flash those files?
and i really appreciate your help, very kind of you thanks a lot.
