Hitachi46dh Windows Code10 Can't Flash Help!
Posted 09 May 2008 - 11:39 PM
I have a Hitachi-LG 46dh drive. Now, my computer is a dell dimension 8200, and it doesn't have any sata connections to the motherboard. I bought this card: http://tekgems.com/P...i22-vt6421a.htm.
I installed the card with drivers with driver 5.70b.
I put the drive in CodeB (im pretty sure its in Code B, flashing green led, press eject 2ce to open or close etc.) and connect to the sata connected to this pci card.
When i turn on my comp, first windows freezes at boot screen (windows logo and the blue horizontal scrolling bar). I eject and 'ject' until windows boots up like I've read. This is where I cant figure it out.
Windows does not recognize the drive. When I go to hardware manager i can see the VIA VT6421A RAID card with the yellow triangle and exclamation over the raid icon. When i go to properties I see that is has a CODE10 and cannot start the drive. I've tried different drivers, I did the crosswire codeb multiple times, and still get the code10.
Basically my question is, anyone with this card have this problem? Any ideas on how to fix it?

Well, I've tried more drivers, and i still get the code 10. I've tried about 10 times (turning everything off to start fresh).
PLEASE help me, I'm so frustrated, I've been browsing the forum for the past 4 hours and I cannot find a solution. I don't have another tower comp readily available, so I have to make this work. Does anyone have ANY ideas?

I have a 47 and my PC doesn't even get to code 10, it just freezes but starts again when I uplug the 47...
I use a cheap USB 2 SATA adapter and it works perfectly... Also a SATA card with a SIL3112 chipset also does the trick...

I kept the driver that i read was the most compatible (5.20c), but plugged it in right before the end of the windows boot sequence (waited about 30 seconds while the windows bar goes across the screen). WORKED LIKE A CHARM!
I didn't eject the tray a bunch of times, the tray was in, but it booted right up. When i plugged the sata before i turned on my pc, th windows boot screen kept freezing, but when i attached the sata cable late in the boot process, it worked... which i find very odd. Came up as a samsung, tho. Flashed it within minutes, copied mah GTA, played the backup, stored my real gta in the corner of my room, never to be touched again!
