Ok. I am home and tried it with modeb_16. When I use dosflash, it sends the mtk vendor intro on port 9400. So what I did was typed modeb_16 9400 and waiting until like 5 lines of dots appeared and saw nothing happoened. I restarted the machine and am now trying the control base register 940A, which slax confirmed for me. As of right now with 940A I have 8 lines of dots. It shouldnt be taking this long right?
I plugged the drive in using a connectivity kit, after modeb_16 started drawing dots.
Also a little info on this drive. I have been playing with it for weeks trying to get it into modeb, but nothing. Slax most of the time reported abnormal status after spinning up disk.
Any ideas? Is this drive bricked? What can I do?

Ok ill give that a try
Edit: I dont understand how to make it show the port
Boot slax 2.1 (login to slax with user: root and pw: toor) and type dmesg | more and look for the following. Hit enter to go through the lines.
ata5: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0x1CC0 ctl 0x1CCA bmdma 0x1CA0 irq 22
ata6: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0x1CD0 ctl 0x1CDA bmdma 0x1CA8 irq 22
When you see something like that, those are your ports. I am still having trouble with it, but in this example there are 4 choices for ports (like I said I am still not sure which one is right yet, I posted a question already). Here the ports are 1cc0 and 1cd0 and the control reg's are 1cca and 1cdaThis post has been edited by danooch13: Sep 17 2008, 01:27 AM
