to get your drive to show again, uninstall the modem's software and driver from the PC. OR connect the modem to another PC that you havent installed the dashboard on

you can flash the ISO back using DC unlocker. see the guide @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-10895.html

do you mean MagicISO gets stuck along the way?

* try copying out the content of the modems drive to an empty folder on your desktop. lets see if it would copy successfully

* copy out the content of the drive to an empty folder
* when copying is complete, open the folder
* select all items inside the folder
* right click on the selected items > MagicISO > Add to image file...
* a new magic iso window should open containing all the files
* click on File > Save
* select the folder where you want to place the iso file
* enter any name you like for the backup iso file
* ensure the format is standard iso image
* finally click on save

the newly created iso file is your backup.
