Hello, first and foremost thank you for taking the time to read this. I have been trying to flash my Hitachi v79 drive for a while now.
I'm trying to use the Podger mode B method from windows. I have the PortIO32 driver installed. However, no software I try will read which port my Hitachi v79 drive is connected. I have my drive plugged into my onboard SATA ports. I am powering it with the 360 connectivity kit.
I think my entire problem is that my SATA ports may not be compatible for flashing my drive, does anyone feel that is the problem? My computer is a Dell XPS-410, under storage controllers in my device manager it says: Intel ICH8R/ICH9R SATA RAID Controller, Microsoft: SCSInitiator, and SCSI/RAID Host Controller.
If anyone has any ideas as to what steps I should take next I would greatly appriciate it! Thank you in advance for reading or posting!
