yep tried that it just seems to stick on block 6 then comes back with error while writing block 7, Ive also tried the official update and that just stalls half way, also tried moving the drive over to another machine but same problem.

Will try to take it back tomorrow and see if I can get it replaced as I think its had it

strange problem are you had your drive installed as internal IDE or with USB2.0 case?

Why not to use the DOS flasher?

Yep, go to http://tdb.rpc1.org/ and download DOS flasher then perform firmware upgrade in pure DOS mode and maybe you wont need to replace your drive. Also connect it to the IDE not USB before doing that.

At least this is the safest and reliable way.

yes I should have tried the dos flasher, got the drive replaced today and will flash it when I need to at the moment it seems to work ok with all the media I have.

Many thanks to all who tried to help
