Hi guys!

I've some friends with bricked LG/Hitachi drives.
So I'll buy an Eprom Programmer or to give live again to these drives (spoof on another console with correct key) or ressurect the original console as some still have the key on archives.

So, I need to know which programmer to buy. I was told about a brand, "Willem", but not a specific model, due to the chip on the Hitachis PCBs. I may need an adapter.

This below from ebay should work?

The flash chip needs to be desoldered from the PCB before it can be read in the programmer.

You would need that Willem listed on ebay + an adaptor for the specific flash chip package.
