    This 9 series lite-on pcb has some burnt out pads on it. The key has been dumped from the drive but can this board be fixed so firmware can be written to the drive, the drive has no firmware on it now.

    I am not willing to call it before we have a better picture to look at but what I can see in the blurriness is not good.

    Obviously you are going to have reconnect the tracks but the holes are where it could get tricky. I lack a full PCB shot to hand and I am not all that willing to trace mine out right now but those holes are there for a reason beyond making it possible to hack so you are going to have to repair those as well. They are small but wire gets that small too, I would sacrifice some headphones if you lack the wire ( http://www.alexwhittemore.com/?p=205 might be of use here).
    In short possible- yes, trivial- no. While you could do it with a firestarter iron you will probably want a decent soldering station.

    its possible to fix it using the other side of the board.
    check xboxhacker.net there is a thread with pictures.

    but i dont understand how this is possible, i use a 15watt soldering iron and i cant get the board to burn?
