I'm currently running mk 1.01 on my ns60 with no issues. That thing is like a tank... it reads everything I throw at it.

I just tried one of each of these sata-usb adapters and neither worked for flashing, which was strange because it was (visually) the one Marty said he had, but the part number IS different.

Shall I send them back stating they don't support optical drives?
i dont even really see a model number for them to add them, otherwise i would

I have a WH14NS40 with 1.03 on it. It's currently in a Vantec case hooked into my Mac via VM (Win 10 32-bit). When I run the Firmware Flash Tool and select the bin file it goes to the progress bar and says it could take up to two minutes. Then it just sits..... I have to end the the task to exit out. The drive still works fine so I don't think it has done anything bad to the drive. Any thoughts on how to get the tool to start working for me? Thanks!!

2 possible problems

1. Make sure your VM fully is passing through the drive
2. What vantec is it the flashing friendly one?

Hi, I used an external ICY BOX IB-550StU3S enclosure (https://www.raidsonic.de/en/standards/s ... jectID=456)
with my ASUS BW-16D1HT and was able to flash the firmware.
Since this enclosure can be found relatively easy in the EU, perhaps you can add it to your list.

I just wanted to say that I just purchased a drive from alexcoluzzi32@gmail.com, he is easy to work with and the drive works flawlessly.
