Ok got it working the old fashion way. HddHackr DOS style. So I can confirm that WD3200LPVT drive can be flash with HddHackr!

Hi, I've got the exact same drive (LPVT) and so have the same problem, the unhandled exception. I'm trying to get it all working in DOS, but encountered some probs:
1. my desktop won't boot from USB-stick no matter what I try
2. it does boot from CD/DVD-drive, but somehow it doesn't see any drive after booting, so no hddhacker.exe (which I put on the boot-cd) to use
3. my laptop does boot from USB, but unfortunately doesn't have an external SATA connection, so I can't hook up the HDD to flash.

What am i doing wrong?

UPDATE:
eventually fixed to boot from USB. Yey! Stupid ALDI PC.
Now hddhackr says "No ATA drives found" although all drives show when booting.:mad2:
Anyone any idea?

Taken from hddhackr readme file, quote "99% of problems appears to be Mainboard chipset (SATA Chipset) or some BIOS configurations (RAID, AHCI, LegacyIDE, ...), not HDDHacker app!!"

So you may want to try on another pc.

Taken from hddhackr FAQ

Q. Is it true that in several cases, booting PC with connected HDD
will change LBA size of my hard drive and it will no longer work in x360?
A. Yes, most modern mainboard/BIOS manufacturer modify LBA size,
they cut the harddrive for HPA and store additional BIOS data at the end of a hard disk.
So if you have such mainboard that uses this technology, do not have the a hard drive
powered on during BIOS detection, it will break XBOX360 compatibility.
To get the x360 compatibility back, simply reflash the HDDSS.BIN.

Update:

tried on another PC and another laptop W7 with X360USB v2. Always error message.
Booted in DOS on laptop, with the LPVT HDD in place of laptop HDD (because no e-sata); HDDhackr just freezes.
