Ok guys, I really hope this helps someone!!
Firstly the situation.....
Flashed an MS28 drive with 42b on via chipset with 10 second method.. reported all 100% all looked good!
Put into 360 & then recieved E65 error!!
Drive is dead, no eject, nothing!
tried bad flash recovery for about 6 hours!!! (waiting 10 seconds,11 seconds...samremod, samread etc nothing!
Heres how I fixed it! with via chipset
1, turned on pc with drive off using xtreme bootmaker with both ms28 boxes ticked!
2, when at dos prompt turned on drive and type mtkflash r /m test.bin
3, pressed enter & DID NOT TURN DRIVE OFF!!!
4, Selected my drive & STILL DID NOT TURN DRIVE OFF!!!
5, It started reading immediately!!!!
6, I was able to read & write continuously (tried 5 or 6 times reading and writing different firmwares)
7, every time i pressed enter it would read and write immediately !!! Drive was never turned off!!
The problem was the fact that I was turning the drive off before selecting chipset (as per instructions!)
Now drive is working perfectly with 42b!!!
Very Happy & hope this helps someone!!
