I posted this in the EEPROM sticky as well:
Purchased 3 LiteOn DH-20A4P drives from NewEgg:
- S/N 202830403840 Model: DH-20A4P04C Mfg Date: 07/2008
- S/N 304831409783 Model: DH-20A4P04C Mfg Date: 07/2008
- S/N 304831409793 Model: DH-20A4P04C Mfg Date: 07/2008
Drive #2 is dead, flashed with the EEPROM from #1. Green light is flashing, did not make a backup, please don't ask.
Tried flashing #2 with the EEPROM from #3. Tried repair checksum in both cases--"Sorry, the EEPROM checksum cannot be repaired by this utility. Contact the CodeGuys!"
Already ordered a new spare drive, so this is purely academic but...
...any chance of recovering the dead drive #2?
Attached EEPROM files 1 and 3.
