Liteon-74 R707 - Serial Data Bad
Posted 20 September 2009 - 07:31 PM
i have a custom power cable made from the tutorial here. I tried my mobile com port cable as spear but it doesn't seem to work so i tried to bridge R707 but it always gives 'serial data bad'. Is a com port device mandatory even if R707 is bridged? I don't get the intention of the error msg if no com port is needed when bridging R707.
The drive is properly detected in JungleFlasher, PortIO is installed and SiI3112 is used on Win7. Everything looks properly so far but the 'serial data bad' message.
What could be wrong?

I do the following:
1) Eject the drive (GND on Pin3)
2) Power off
3) 3.3v on Pin3 (tray closed state - by switch)
4) Move the tray to half state
5) Power up the drive
6) Start JF
R707 is bridged (soldered with kynar wire).
I press 'DVDKey32' and 'serial data bad' shows up after a second.
If i want to repeat the process i don't need to restart JF or windows, right? I just power-cycle the drive.

si may not be compatable with drive some drives dont care for them
i would assume as well as brdinging ect you would need a ttl adapter to make pc think it had serial adapter
but i dont no anything about this method i am meraly guessing to help in some small way..
