Possible to fix corrupted firmware on WD HD?
Posted on 2004-08-23
My brother has a WD200BB HD (White label OEM) that has stopped being recognized properly by the system. It has been put into 3 different systems and all report the drive as an 8GB drive - it's recognized as a WD, but only shows a capacity of 8GB. I will be getting my hands on this drive tonight to try on my system (so I can see for myself how it's being reported and if the info I'm getting is accurate), but is there a possibility that a) the HD firmware is corrupted and if so can it be reflashed or otherwise recovered without losing the data on the drive? I'm giving this a high point value because I need an answer ASAP
