Modify Panasonic JU-257A607P to Amiga?

Hey.

I found a site saying it was possible to modify a PC HD floppy drive to 880K DD Amiga Foppy drive - JU-257 by Panasonic.

So I got myself one of these and then I was dismayed to find out my drive was different to that described in the instructions. After googling some more it seems I have drive which is listed as "maybe" possible to modify.

I have looked at the PCB and nothing is apparent, the jumpers etc nothings stands out according to any of the guides..

Does anyone have any ideas etc or has modified one of these drives before?

Here's a detailed pic of the PCB

Ok well I found this thread:

It seems that its not modifiable? But I have a 606PC on order so when that comes I should be able to alter it
