My problem essentially echoes the situation here:
However, I’m using a 10-year-old computer running Windows 2000, which the more recent versions of Binflash no longer support. After some Googling and reading, it seems the version I need would be 1.49b, though I can’t seem to find older versions of the software anywhere. Does anyone have it? Is it available anywhere?
LiteOn tools don’t work, because the Y is rebadged hardware and not compatible. Yes, yes, I know someone will say I should upgrade my OS. I have a laptop on Windows 7. This desktop has run stably for a decade on Win2k, and I am not screwing that up. I’m happy to hear about alternatives if you experts know about them, but as far as I can tell, an earlier version of Binflash is the most direct solution to the current problem. Please do let me know if it can be found. Thanks!
