Mitsumi Cr4804TE bad flash with 30D

This drive got trashed by the Mitsumi update 3.0D - it is no longer recognized by the bios or the flash.exe utility. I tried MTKFLASH but that does not recognize either. Anyone have any secret SWITCHES for flash.exe or a hacked version that forces the ide port to primary/secondary or master/slave to force a flash ? i have the right fw to reflash… :confused:

OK - I have a utility called FLASH.EXE and the correct ROM file that ends in .CIF - anyone have a way to force the FLASH.EXE to update on a specific IDE port ?
