I've been trying for a week now to get my WP up and running on Win98. I have the files to flash the DOC on a DOS bootable hard drive, ready to flash, but the WP will not even power up my HD.
I've tried 3 hard drives (Seagate ST9546A, Seagate ST9420AG, and IBM Travelstar DARA-218000), and the same thing happens every time. I know I have pin 1 correct on both sides with the red stripe on pin 1, but I have even tried every permutation possible with all the drives.
I tested voltage: Pin 42 to pos, Pin 43 neg = 3.33V. I tested Pin 41 to pos, Pin 43 neg = 3.33V.
Just to try, I tested Pin 2 neg, Pin 3 pos = 4.44V. Also Pin 2 neg, Pin 5 pos = 4.44V.
I'm using a 44 pin cable that I bought from Bad Flash that is said to work specifically for the WP.
My WP is from Boundless, which I got from Ubid, though it does say Virgin on the cover. I've done some research, and my MB does indeed have the U33 and the R236.
It boots fine into the Virgin web service, but of course I have not tried to connect to it...
Am I going crazy????
