    You have to stick it into mode b before it'll be detected. Jungeflasher comes with a guide that covers everything.

    you need to use SLAX Linux to put it into mode B first
    and if its a 79 drive, an extra step is needed to put that audio disk in (78 drive doesnt need this)

    I've had the same problems with Hitachi drives (which is the drive you're using) and I finally got it working. I'll assume you're using Vista, but if you're not just get to Device Manager some other way.

    1) Put the drive in "Mode B"
    2) Go to control panel, make sure you're in the classic view, and choose "Device Manager"
    3) Choose the top thing listed (which should be the name of your computer), then go to the toolbar and choose "Scan for Hardware Changes"
    4) Once that's done, go back to Jungleflasher and refresh the drive list. The Hitachi drive should be found

    Be sure to post back here and tell us if it worked or not.
