Cheers Lads for the Kind comments
I think we will see less and less of these drive's with the benq and Light - on drive
But I do enjoy getting them back up and working again, but alot easier for me to install the passkey when starting from scratch.

Christ that passkeys look a fiddly job. Have not had that drive myself. Is it not easier to remove the sst 39vf020 chip and program it with ix1.4 with a willem.

Depends On how much epoxy is under the tsop
you could damage the via's under the tsop lifting, or worse still snap the tsop in half then you will never get the drive key
