    I have just kinda bricked my Benq drive and I feel like The last Tut on youtube from Itzlupo gave a tut on un bricking but I can't find it. I use Jungleflasher. I connect via SATA and I power the drive with the XBOX 360. The reason it was a bad flash was because for some reason the computer was stuck at "Writing bank 0" so I restarted the flash and I remember what port the xbox 360 was on. please help, thanks.

    First I tried to erase the drive then it said something like "Drive returned to invalid status" then I just did the "Intro/Device ID" Like you said but then it said "Device intro failed!"

    first of all there is no such thing as benq erase, there is benq unlock! what you need to do is power cycle the drive IE eject it, power on power off, you may even need to nudge the laser, then try the intro, it is not bricked it just does not have any firmware on it.

    i didnt say anything about tweaking the laser, its a well known fact that nudging the laser from its resting position helps with the cycling process, in total agreement, it is impossible that he has a bricked benq!

    Im no pro at it but shouldn't the drive be opened half way to? Ive always done the flash with the drive half open and its worked for me. I did have the same issues with a liteon drive that was a bit fussy but those are a different breed. In the end I used dosflash wrote firmware. I would recomend trying all you can with jungle flash first cause dosflash requires a bootable usb stick and a tweak to the boot settings in the bios on your pc so that it will look to the usb for boot files before booting c drive. Its easy If your done that before and I left the settings like that after because if the usb stick is removed it will boot windows anyways. Using dosflash isn't fun If you haven't used dos applications before. Theres a tutorial if you search it you'll find it and it will see your drive without firmware as long as you set it to look for the right port address. its the same port as in jungle flasher and you probably don't have to reflash with jungle flasher after. I'm sure there's probably better ways but this way is a way that will work to get firmware on the drive and If your nervous about it then you can always reflash with jungle flasher after.
