Luc: the chip itself doesn't appear to be broken because writing a 512KB file created with dd from /dev/zero and reading it back, then comparing the empty and readout file with md5sum shows that the files are identical (ergo empty)
If I remember correctly erasing the chip would work correctly on my own machine as well. Ah yes:
- The chip does Erase properly
- writing an all 0xFF file does work correctly.
Have you tried to write one of the images?
I have written I1300114.BIN ( http://www.via.com.tw/servlet/downloadSvl?id=400&download_file_id=4942&a...) a minute ago, read the chip and compared the md5sums of the readout and the downloaded file: they match.

I sincerely doubt that, but lets rule it out anyway. I'll have memtest run a couple of hours this week.
Did memtest report any errors ?
