I am not sure what an unlock cd is could you explain?.Cog

Ok I googled it and all I could find was a temporary unlock method used for the v79 drives...Cog

Upon further look I noticed there are more posts where people use them currently. I will say I have not seen a old hatachi in so long I may have forgot but I don't remember the unlock cd. Also seen where diaboliq and playingmax seem to know something about the old hatachi's at least more than me. Trying to help and not doing a good job.Cog

Hi did you read and save the drives origional firmware bud. if so open up the firmware in jungleflasher and check to see if its a spoof of another drive also does it still detect in jungle flasher anymore?
on jungleflasher app it says unlock cd that takes you to a link to download the img to burn to cd (cd not dvd) you press eject on ck3 put cd in click send mode b on jf when tray closes it the unlocks the drive with cd ie it spins the disc for a few secs max then allows you to upgrade the firmware try port io as well if first setting doesent do it for you.
