[QUOTE=negritude;2108224]It’s an open secret that you need to reboot your computer and/or power off and back on your external enclosure when doing things beyond just updating Lite-On drive firmware. A reboot or power-cycle is also a good idea when simply modifying the settings.
I’ll bet you haven’t been doing that.
Also, when recovering from hacking your drive, you restore the firmware first, and then the EEPROM. Once again, you restore the EEPROM last. Then reboot and/or power-cycle your enclosure.[/QUOTE]
well actually I am a reboot power cycle freak I do it everytime no matter what but you do got me on restoring backwards I was doing eeprom first bvut what I do is restore eeprom reboot then restore firmware reboot again then mod settings and with my external powercycle off after doing that because I know the seriousness of rebooting powercycling. but
one question what if you are not flashing firmware but restoring eeprom is it ok to just restore eeprom reboot and not flash firmware??
I gotta say I’m having the hardest time with the oht thing eos is ok & SB is ok but oht once I mess with it it won’t turn off but now that I have disabled it is’s been ok. But you don’t think the 1394 has anything to do with it?
