SOHW - 1633S, bad flash?

Postby AmanO on Sun Jun 26, 2005 11:48 pm

My buddy tried to flash to a 1673S. Now, no show in windows but is there in BIOS. Is there a special ROM to flash with? Has anyone else been sucessfull with this?

This isn't possible, although both are "3S" drives. The 1673S and 1693S belong to a different generation and are incompatible with earlier 3S models. See this summary on the codeguys' page.

As to fixing the drive- this has been discussed various times at CDFreaks. He may have to go to MTKFlash (runs under DOS). See, for example, this thread and some of the references in it.
