Hitachi drive bricked, but still detected.....as USB Mass storage in windows.
i've bricked my hitachi v46 drive today (which is connected through usb 2 sata) as i wanted to flash new mediapatch with birdy flasher
. before i had garyopa 7in1 v2.1 but my NEC burned dvd didnt run on my hitachi. so i wanted to flash ther new patch.
i flashed to original with garyopa's flasher and everything was fine.
than i flashed the drive with birdy, it dumped the fw and checked than i got an error an the programm didnt do anything anymore, it said idle and i couldnt hit the go button anymore. as i closed birdy flasher and restartet it the drive didnt get recognized.
but windows still detects it as USB Mass storage! is there anyway to reflash it ?
i used slax cd before with special settings for usb 2 sata connection, but know since the drive is bricked i cant set it in modeb with it
would the wire trick to get into modeb help ? or is the drive just dead ?
