I have the iHaS124 (B version?) and I have kind of a bizarre problem with it. It worked well for over a year, now suddenly I have no detected drive at all.

I tried flashing the FW back to stock, but it says no drive detected. It's definitely connected and powered, I can eject just fine but there is no DVD drive shown under My Computer at all.

I don't see any drivers for this, it seems to be using a default 2006 CD-ROM driver from Microsuck. Dafuq? I thought Windows 7 was newer than 2006 even... If I try to update driver it claims I have the latest driver and there's nothing newer than 2006 -____-

Here's a screenshot from my Device Manager:

The yellow exclaimation point is because "windows cannot load the drivers for this device" and the one below it I believe is related to either VMware or another type of Virtual Drive. I disabled it for troubleshooting. If either are uninstalled they just come right back.

is there any way we can get a repost of the firmware links that include firmwares for the Memorex compatible disks as well? ALL of the links in this tutorial for LTMAX firmware are broken.

can i also connect a sata from the drive to a via 6421 card ?
No offence but if you ask if you can use lite-on firmware on a pioneer drive then ask how to connect your drive I'm not sure you should be even trying to back up games

Thanks for tutorial I followed this as well as others with still issues. My IHAS324-B with stock I cannot find a way to reset the flash but I do not think this is the problem the flash will just not let the firmware update but it has nothing to update because it already is -B.
