Hi Guys.

I have a little problem with flashing the Hitachi Drive.
Iīve installed the Passkey, and read out the Firmware.
But now if I will flash it, I must insert a game, than I can push check different.
But the Drive stops reading and put out the Game, and the program canīt flash.
Can you help me.??

Wait until the disc gets spit out , then press eject 1 time once it starts moving press eject 2 times quickly.

i'm having some difficulty with an hitachi79 too, passkey correctly installed (triple checked), but windows doesn't recognize the drive.

once in a while the blue led of the passkey lights up and the drive is recognized by windows, but only for a few seconds, then it disappears

i think this is an incompability with my sata chipset or something (VIA 8237 onboard), should i probably buy a PCI Sata card, which chipset should i buy? which one has the best compatibility rate?

thanks in advance
