Today I received a Sony DRU-710A. I decided to crossflash it to a DRU-800A but I forgot to OmniPatch the firmware (I should have known better!!) so now I’ve ended up with a “blinking drive”.
My question is this: I have a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3P Rev3.3 on my test rig, which has 4 burners and 4 hard drives. I have tried to boot into MS-DOS using a USB flash drive and recover the drive using MTKFLASH, but the program reports that the IDE Channel cannot be initialised. Has anyone experienced this problem before? My boot “disk” is only basic and has COMMAND.COM, IO.SYS and MSDOS.SYS.
