Flashrom/9600P Problem

Help. I was trying to save my Sapphire 9600Pro black pcb bios using the following syntax: ATIFLASH -S 0 <name.rom> but neither the AtiFlash or flashrom progs detect "adaptor 0".

Does this mean my cards bios is protected?

I had a ATI radeon 9600 pro and I tried all the flashing programs , to no avail , the bios is not only write protected but locked , can't even access the version or info in the bios .

I finally cracked my bios open with FLASHROM, looked at the code with a bios editor but couldnt find anything worthwhile to alter....damm 9600P still doesnt want to get up and run with the dogs.

Found a bad capacitor on it, had a domed top, took a 470mfd 16v cap off an old mainboard and changed the bad one.
