Flashing EEPROM with old EBLOCKS EB-006-6

Post by cellomar »

I found my father's old Eblocks multiprogrammer in my garage and I'm wondering if I can use it to flash an 8 pin eeprom i took off a pc motherboard. Its a winbond 25Q64FVAIG.

Long story short I the mobo somehow has an incorrect BIOS flashed and after exhausting all my options, I've concluded that I need an eeprom programmer to flash the chip, and I'm hoping I can manage with this eblocks board instead of buying a programmer just for one flash.

I have bit of exp with embedded programming but Im a noob really, any help would be sincerely appreciated. So far I've got the drivers installed and I have mloader installed as well. When I try to autodetect the chip I get "unable to communicate with target".

The data I'm trying to flash onto the chip is a file with the .bss extension. Is this possible or should I bite the bullet and just buy a dedicated programmer?

Sorry to disappoint but the EB006 is for programming (certain) PIC controllers.
