Hi,

I've asked a lot of questions on here, I've tried everything with windows but just cant get the drive recognized. So this is my last attempt at doing it myself... !

I have a Liteon currently on 1.5. I've used DOS to 'make' a 120GB hdd with hddhackr, so I thought I'd use l-o-eras.exe and dosflash to upgrade to 1.51.

The computer sees the drive, but writes: MTK Vendor Info Failed!

I press 'y' and power the xbox on and off, when powered back on the yellow light flashes constantly (like when the DVD power connecter is removed).

I've power cycled the drive so many times, all to no avail. When I try and choose the drive (5 in my case) it says there is no drive there.

L-O-Eras.exe just gives me Status FFFF every time. Again, I tried to cycle the power many times.

Any ideas why the computer sees the drive no problem but won't allow me to access it?

Thanks,
BB

did you open the tray, power it off, close it halfway and then turn it back on?
then l-o-eras.
power off then on again, then dosflash?

Only if you are trying to get the key etc, if you are trying to erase/write then no.



Try this.

Boot to dos with your drive off and sata unplugged.

Once in Dos, plug in sata and turn drive on (tray closed)

type l-o-eras.exe (your port number) usually twice until you get FF72

When status = FF72, turn drive off and type dosflash

dosflash will list drives, type y to resend and turn drive back on

From there you should be able to choose the drive to erase/write/
