ASAP: Firmware Update Failure

Hi everyone,
Could anybody help me with my DVD Writer problem. The firmware update failed and restarted automatically :doh: . After that the drive is not detecting any kind of cd or DVD :confused: , but it blinks when the system is started . Is there any solution software wise :bigsmile: (Preferable) or can give me solution which involves changing any chip replacing with new one :smiley: (along with guide). If possible could any of u guys give me the url for ckt diagram and working of ODD. Thanks in advance

Don’t you think it would be a good idea, to give us some more information about what drive you had and what firmware you were using for the update? :confused:

There are lots of experts in this forum, but only few people can read your mind.

Its Samsung TS-H552U (DVD Writemaster) and I was upgrading to firmware version 7 from version 1.

Go to and download the firmware for your drive but read first…

This is for crossflash your drive but you can use it to revive it too…

you need 2 floppies

  1. DOS boot disk
  2. MTKFLASH.exe (1.83c), MTKFLASH.typ, and the US07.bin
    A very basic how-to:
  • create a DOS boot diskette

  • download Mtkflash and the binary file you want to flash, unzip them and copy to the diskette.

  • boot your machine from the diskette *, at the A:> type:

MTKFLASH # W /B /M filename.BIN

only instead of the # should be:

1 - if the drive is master on primary IDE
2 - for slave on primary
3 - master on secondary
4 - slave on secondary

and instead filename type the EXACT name of the binary file. (Zero is not the same as letter O)

Be VERY precise with spaces!

  • Hit the Enter and wait till process is finished. Remove diskette and reboot.

Did it work?

Llun, thanks dude it did work :slight_smile:
