I was unable to play DL disks on my laptop and figured upgrading the firmware would slove my problem. (Problem was with booktype, and me being a moron.) Flashed the wrong firmware (first time anyone’s done that eh?). Now my Windows XP says the drive is a “Generic DVD-ROM SCSI CdRom Device” however it see’s any media I put in it as a plague. (Blue screen of death time.)
Now I have all the tools, (boot disk, right firmware etc.) I even burned an .iso of the “Firmware Flashing Bootdisk” with all the bells and whistles. This is where I get stuck:
Do I have to get an SCSI to IDE adapter or is there a way to flash to a SCSI device? All the Flash utilities require switch settings for master slave, SS, whatever. If so shouldn’t I just buy a new drive instead of buy the adapter? Is there a program or method for flashing SCSI?
I’ve tried Samsung’s sfdnwin program but it says “Firmware is not compatiable…” (Anyone make a fix for sfdwin to bypass the drive check???)
Any help would be appreciated by one and all. -Kyle
