[QUOTE=DiNZi;2678787]Hi there, I’m using the ‘Optiarc DVD±RW AD-7200S ATA’ drive and looking at Liggy’s and Dee’s Optiarc Firmwares page. Could someone help, which is the latest firmware out for the AD-7200S drive that I have?
What is the difference between 1.09 and 1.J1? There are also other versions 1.0B, 1.0A and 1.D3. [/QUOTE]
If you look at the overview, you can sort this list by date - just click on the corresponding title. Latest one for AD-7200S should be 1.0B
[QUOTE=cetm;2678862]I’m trying to flash an AD-7261S running firmware 1.03 to 1.Z5.
When trying to flash I get this message:
The firmware file expects a different boot code on your drive. You are not
allowed to continue. Drive: 0x3032 - File:0x3232.[/QUOTE]
You would have to apply different bootcode to your drive. However this bootcode is not available for download and I don’t even have it myself.
[QUOTE=mau;2678893]Liggy, just an advice - in the AD-7710H page there is a AD-7717H v102A firmware which seems to have newer strategies compared to v1.01. Would it be possible and safe to flash my 7710H v1.01 with 102A?[/QUOTE]
It could be possible, however 7710H and 7717H have different bootcodes, so this could mean that also the hardware has changed, which could then result in write strategies that may even break your drive. Also transferring the strategies requires a lot of work and will probably give only very minimal benefit, so I’m not going to do this.
[QUOTE=mau;2678893]And… uh-oh… the readme.txt of v102A talks about 7740H… is it a typo?[/QUOTE]
It was a typo. Should be fixed now
These typos happen when I’m archiving the firmwares. Readme.txt has to be updated manually for each firmware and it might happen that I forget to change a location in that file.
