Quote from: Muzer on 21:03, 21 December 09EDIT: When fiddling, a brass-looking pin fell out from god knows where. Where is this from, and would it matter if it doesn't go back?
Quote from: Trotzdem on 04:46, 22 December 09Could you tell which drive you own ? It's code is probably on a sticker and begins with "EME".The pin is very probably responsible for detecting wether a disc is write protected or not. Sadly, I don't own such a drive, so I can't do any photos to show you where the pin has to be. But is very likely you find some kind of microswitch on the circuitboard of the drive. The pin would be located above that, so it would press it when a disc is inserted.Perhaps you can make a photo of the circuitboard of your drive, the drives body and the pin ?

Note a custom loader would likely need to be created to re-load the image.I have been able to transfer programs via WinAPE (albeit simple basic, but may be it can handle speedlocked or others protections directly).
Quote from: Gryzor on 13:48, 13 April 11Let's resurrect this...My belts arrived yesterday and I'm ready to replace one after several years. What I don't remember is - where is the write-enable pin located, and what should you take care of in order for it not to fall off? Unfortunately there are no hints either here or in the wiki article (after doing mine I'll update both guides and incorporate them somehow)...
