Here is the link for all types of firmware that works good on crossflashing
http://tdb.rpc1.org/
Just select your drive and it will take you to it.
Good Luck

[QUOTE=ValHall64;2255738]Sorry for O/T. :sad:

In that post I was linking to BenQ home ftp server, not to BenQ EU ftp.
ftp://62.2.173.100/dvd-rw/firmware/

And for sure it’s not better written as*; … :disagree:
Thanks. :flower:[/QUOTE]

:disagree:

You don’t get it. The IP address 62.2.173.100 = mx02.benq-eu.com.

That is the same address and the “home server”, as you called it. There’s no difference, except, rather than using an IP, which many people don’t trust (I would never go to an IP address without knowing it’s logical address), the logical address makes it clear and self-evident that the site is official.

Hello. I’ve decided to crossflash my MSI DR16-B4 to BenQ DW1670. Using BQ Flasher. It seems that it can’t load the firmware. giving an error “Can’t Load Firmware to memory”. Any help about this ?!

Thanks !

Your MSI DR16-B4 is a DW1620 clone. A DW1670 is a Teac clone.


#425

That is pretty strange. Already some one here told me it is a DW1670 clone.

here … http://club.cdfreaks.com/1579365-post240.html

Anwyay, there is many DW1620 firmwares, which one, I have to choose ? B7W9 or B7M9 or B7V9 or B7T9 or B7U9 …

Thanks :slight_smile:


#426

Sorry, my fault. The MSI DR16-B2 is a DW1620 clone. Do you have a MSI DR16-B4 firmware link ?


#427

I don’t think I have one. I don’t know where to get it. I searched at firmwarehq.com and found nothing there about it.

That is the product page
http://global.msi.eu/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=272&prod_no=981

and that is the the Information displayed using DVDInfo Pro

I tried to load DW1620 B7W9 version and it loaded it. I don’t dare to flash without an equivalent firmware or it will brick the DVD RW:(


#428

So your drive is a Benq DVD DC DQ60 clone, which is a TEAC DV-W516E clone using a Panasonic chipset. BQflasher does not support this drive.


#429

Could you tell me what is the difference between DVD DD and DVD DC ? I am still new for this stuff.
EDIT : Does BenQ DVD DC DQ60 support bitsetting ?. Probably I would flash it using B3C flasher.
thanks :slight_smile:

Is there any way how I could crossflash my Philips DVDR1660P1 (connected via IDE+SATA/USB adapter based on a JMicron JM20337 chipset) to a Benq DW1650 drive?
The drive cannot be detected by BQFlasher even though it’s detected and working in other programs like OptiDrive Control, IMGBurn, etc. Does this program work only with drives connected via IDE?

IIRC this may be necessary in some scenarios.

Yes, I do. :frowning:


#433

I guess, this might be due to the enclosure chipset. I am not really sure, but I think the crossflash worked with an enclosure based on Cypress AT2 chipset.

You want me to awake my own 1660P1 from its storage location and see if it is recognised by BQflasher when connected to a Jmicron based adapter? :slight_smile:

Edit:
BQFlasher does see my Philips 1660P1, connected to a Jmicron based IDE/USB adapter. VID=0x152D, PID=0x2338. JM20337 is printed onto the chip, as far as I can see.

I have not attemped to flash the drive now.

You have tried windwflash?


#435

Windwflash worked like a charm! Thanks, Dean, Michael & Roar! Now I finally have a replacement for my dead Benq DW1655. :clap:

Outstanding :clap: . Has always worked better for me with externals.

This is a relief for me. My world has been knocked off-axis since your last BenQ died :sad:. Nice to be back to normal :bigsmile:. Did the files help or did you already have them laying around?

I found your email a few minutes after I successfully crossflashed my drive. It would have saved me a lot of time if I checked my mailbox earlier. :doh::bigsmile: Thank you so much for your help anyway. :flower:

Sorry Peter :o. As I stumbled(or my wife dragged me;)) off to bed last night I had a hunch I should have PMed you too :doh:.

It was my fault - I check that mailbox very sporadically. :doh:


#440

Fine, you got it. :slight_smile: :clap:

But I am curious to know, why BQflasher [I]does [/I]see [I]my [/I]Philips 1660P1 with a Jmicron 20337 adapter and yours not. :confused:
