Okay. I just built a new computer and put in a VT6421L SATA card. I have the 520c drivers installed and I am trying to read a MS25 drive. I first tried a simple mtkflash routine from cdrom using original mtkflash then the first edited mtkflashvia, and the second edited mtkflashvia. I then tried hex editing myself. When I boot NTS4DOS all the steps go fine and I am able to run mtkflash from C: drive. The problem is that it does not continue and show my SATA controller as suggested.
It says "PORT:1F0, MASTER/SLAVE:a0"

So I figured it was a boot from cd issue so used xtreme bootmaker to create a booting usb drive with 5.1b fw
When I type "samread xxserialxxxxx" it says "directory already exists then displays the same "PORT:1F0, MASTER/SLAVE:a0" message.
I tried then putting in the serial without the space and it prompted me to input the serial with the space in it. I do and it says PORT:1F0, MASTER/SLAVE:a0" message again and sits there doing nothing.
So I rebooted PC, explored the usbkey but there is no orig.bin on the drive.

So here I am. I am assuming that the controller card is not being seen but at this point I am at a loss as what to try.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

It sounds like your not hexediting your card properly. You might want to try picking up something like Xtremebootmaker and using that to hlep you hexedit.

for anybody interested the problem for me turned out to be the external plug on the SATA controller card. As soon as I used the SATA plug on the inside of the machine for the Via card all worked perfect. No need to unplug any onboard IDE or SATA plugs.

Ahh - good catch
Yes, that has been reported a few times already, but always good to get a reminder
