UPDATE: The seller is sending me a replacement board. No longer required.
Got sent a board from an eBay seller that is FRAGGING out of the box. Many loose capacitors and I fear more underlying problems.
I need a v1.0 or v1.1 board, as all I have lying around are single ATX power supplies.
TSOP flashed preferred, but if not, then EEPROM extracted, if possible.
A friend gave me a v1.0 board that was causing problems for him. I put it in a standard early case, attached everything and proceeded to test it. I wanted to update the BIOS (TSOP) so I attempted to run the Hexen DVD. The DVD tray would open, I placed the disk in the tray and pushed the button to close. The Unleash X menu continued to show "Open". I tried this with two known good working DVD drives - one a Samsung and the other a Hitachi.. I changed cables and PSU with no difference. I also checked to see if there were any bent pins for the DVD power cable. All good. I switched-out the power button/DVD drive button harness. No difference. Then I tried a good Thomson DVD drive. Everything worked flawlessly.. What is that all about? Is there a different command structure for the early v1.0 boards that limits which DVD drives will correctly operate with them?
