WH16NS40 Not Flashing

Post by knyght1 » Tue Aug 13, 2019 10:24 pm

I have an LG WH16NS40 drive with S50 service code and firmware 1.03. I am using a Mac Pro with Windows 7 Parallels to complete the flashing. I followed the directions per the post and when I start the flashing procedure it never completes, stuck at 0% forever.

Any help is appreciated!

2 things
drive may not be fully passed through to VM
Or
USB adapter does not support flashing what adapter do you have?

The drive is internal connected via SATA cable.

Windows 7 sees the drive and it says its connected in Parallels. Is there something more I need to do to "fully pass it through"?

Thanks for helping out!

Is it possible that the problem is the drive is connected via SATA? Would switching it to IDE in the BIOS work? I have a MAC, not even sure if that is possible.
