    Hi everyone,

    Got a quick question. Can anyone tell me about PROM fuses in Hard drives, particularly in the reader arms. Are they all generic or does each manufacture use different fuses in different models. Also how do you go about accessing each different fuse and will those codes be different for each manufacturer. Is there a list available, there does not seem to be that much information on the web about them except general descriptions of how they work

    Thanks in advance for any help :)

    Regards

    Jonathan

    I'd be willing to wager large sums that they are all different, proprietary, and inacessible.
