5224a asus verbatim firmware flash issues

Please help.

I have a 5224a asus verbatim cdr burner 52x24x52x which I need a firmware flash. I found the updated 1.7 firmware and have downloaded it several times but don’t know how to use it.

I also have the flash tool but it asks me for a file that I cant seem to find. I am running winXP and the latest Nero.

The reason for the needed flash: I get an error message when I try to burn that says," drive is empty, please insert empty cd in drive" when I already have a cd in.

I believe I need to update the firmware so it can recognize the lastest media. I have purchased 4 different types of media, all with the same results.

Please help :bow:
