[QUOTE=cpubound;2726228]The flasher looks for device name ‘ATAPI DVD A DH16A6S’ however, Windows identifies the device name as ‘ATAPI DVD A DH16A6S USB DEVICE’ because it connected via USB. A mismatch occurs and an error message is generated.[/QUOTE]
One you choose the target drive in the flasher dropdown menu, I doubt the name of the device is important. If you can see the drive listed in the menu, then it has already been enumerated by the system and the flasher knows how to find it. All it’s doing is translating the “friendly name” to a specific bus and device number.
More likely the flash fails AFTER being found, because the SATA-USB adaptor is filtering what is transmits, and is not fully passing the flash commands to the drive.
