I've never had any issues flashing my Samsing ms25. But my PC does not seem to fully recognize my Hitachi 0059dj in ModeB. I am able to get the drive letter F assigned to the drive, but on running FLASH23S.BAT F 1971 (from Maximus-Garyopa_XTRM-HITACHI_v2_3_Stealth), I get the following:
Making BACKUP of your DRIVE KEY...
Dumping CURRENT firmware...
Detecting VERSION of drive...
ERROR: Hitachi drive build was NOT detected!
WARNING: One of THREE things could be wrong!
#1: Check to see if your drive is in Windows
#2: Make sure you are using the right letter
#3: Your x360 drive is not a working version
The "X23S-1971" folder winds up with a 1KB key.bin and a 256KB was.bin file and that is it.
One peculiar thing, when I boot up using the Slax 2.0 alpha1 CD, I get a blank screen unless I wait to connect the SATA cable to the Hitachi until after I see the SLAX logo. The PC Slax CD whirs for a little bit and then freezes. It doesn't seem like it has worked, but upon closing the Hitachi drive, it always opens up which I assume indicates ModeB.
Another peculiar thing, if I boot my PC (Slax CD taken out) with the Hitachi connected (in ModeB) it always freezes. However if I wait to connect the Hitachi until 5 seconds after reboot, Windows loads just fine and the Hitachi has drive letter F assigned to it.
My conclusion is that my SATA chipset is not compatible with the 0059dj, but if that's the case why does it get assigned a drive letter at all?
Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.
