just picked back up on this thread good job I got side tracked reading up on a DBOX so I have to avoid the Lite-On drive then but apart from that the other 3 will do fine right so no need for a brand new one then :proud: better start sniffing

Yes mate....the one to avoid is definately the liteon...I'd try to avoid the hitachi v79 if you can too as this needs a passkey to be installed in order to flash the firmware although xbc or highlander can do that for you so it wont be too much of a problem if you do get the v79...well atleast it can still be done unlike the liteon lol

All of the hitachis are fine and easy to do too mate... the only hitachi drive to avoid unless you are experienced with a soldering iron is the v79.

them 79s are a pig to do did one today installed trusty maximums pass key ...
drive ejected and closed fine but no led humm i thought ohh well try slax 2 booted slax did its job booted into windows dumped the GDR patched the hex then when i tried to flash the drive had gone !!!
after an hour of fecking about i got the drive back and flashed it its all good now
but i have to say i hate 079s they are a barstool fec knows what the problem was but i got there in the end
not recommended for the inexperienced there unpredictable ...
