... but the HOST is showing HS-DHGL-EM612 which I understand is in Emergency Mode, the FW version just shows ----. Tried to perform the update, after transferring the firmware image the updater returns a message stating HS-DHGL-EM612 returns an error. (ACP_STATE_FAILURE) updating is aborted. Error light continues to flash six times.
I don't have any data on the drive that I need, just need to get it back to factory defaults.
Any help anyone can provide would greatly be appreciated.
That you are getting it into EM mode is a __good__ thing. If you can do that, then it is probably recoverable.
Can you still get it into EM mode? If so, try it and have another go.
I'm thinking there is a way to make sure the LSUpdater actually reformats the disk. If I remember correctly, 6 blinks means hdd problem... perhaps it just needs reformatting. Is it possible you hdd is just dead?
It sounds like you are close.
