I own an External Hard Drive Enclosure based on the PL-3507 chipset. (Brand SQP / Model BOIT-XPCOMBO)
I need to flash it with a newer firmware because of some bugs with the Firewire interface but it is not possible. It seems this is due to a zero resistor which is sometimes put on those devices to prevent people from flashing it by themselves ( http://club.myce.com/f61/prologic-pl3507-firmware-flash-problem-112972/#post957178 )
In the post referenced above, the writer says which resistor to remove to enable flashing but on my device this resistor doesn’t exist. It seems I don’t have exactly the same device.
Since I don’t have the knowledge on which resistor to remove, is there someone of you who could determine which one to remove ?
I post the 2 pictures of the board of the device.
Thanks a lot
