in the latest Binflash release 1.51 I added a number of routines to allow flashing of Optiarc BluRay drives. Supported drives should be:
[li]Optiarc BC-5500S (very likely to work)[/li][li]Optiarc BC-5600S (should definitely work)[/li][li]Optiarc BD-5730S (only works if flashing hasn’t changed since the 5500S/5600S drives)[/li][/ul]
Right now I can not detect these drives and this is what I first need help for. Also dumping firmwares is not supported and may never be if that’s not supported by the drive at all or if can’t figure how to do it. However once a drive is detected, flashing new firmwares should be possible - circumventing restrictions that are applied to the original flasher softwares like flashing OEM firmwares.
For the time being I will first need help to detect these drives. I can provide you with tools (Windows only) and instructions on what to do. If then someone is really brave and does not mind bricking an expensive drive we can also try flashing firmwares.
