Something doesn’t sound right. Which version of the DW1640 firmware did you flash?
BSGB first, then BSLB, rebooting between each flash.
Did you close all programs before flashing?
Flashed in safe mode without any programs running.
Are you using the latest version of BQFlasher?
Tried BQFlasher 0.7.2 but it did not see the drive. So I had to use WinDWFlash.
Did you get a flash completed dialogue box after flashing? Did you reboot immediately after flashing?
Yes and yes.
Is the drive installed internally or in an enclosure? If internally, are you using an 80-wire IDE cable? Is the drive your primary (master) or secondary (slave)?
Internal, 80-pin cable, secondary slave. I guess changing the cable and the port couldn’t hurt. I will try that and post back. I am open to any other ideas and suggestions as well. Thanks.
