I am trying to get my 93450c modded but it is proving to be a pain. I am using the boxxdr method. I have re-soldered many times and every time JF is telling me Status 0x7F when I hit intro and turn it on. I have also tried turning the drive on first then trying JF but the same result occurs. I have tried this with Windows XP then I formatted to Windows 7 and they both showed 7F; I have always used this computer for doing drives and it hasn't failed me yet so the chipset can't be it. I've tried two sata cables and still nothing.
I have tried searching the boards for 7F but not much comes up that is a situation like mine.
I have been trying to get a clear picture of my soldering work but my camera keeps getting a bad reflection of light off the board. I uploaded a picture for you to see. I have no idea how people get such clear images. My camera isn't horrendous, it's a Sony Cybershot that was purchased 2-3 years ago with 7.2 MP.
