recently updated firmware of my BTC BDV316E DVDROM using BTC’s liveupdate program, this didnt work out.
Contacted BTC helpdesk and advised to relash in DOS.
Unfortunatly I’m not an expert with DOS and having problems with BTC’s instructions and generally not getting very far. I understand the need to boot into DOS and then run their NTFSDOS disk which I have tried but cant get access to the firmware om my copied to harddisk.
Have copied BTC instructions below for info, I need help and detailed instructions in either 1. how to get to my C: drive to access the firmware or 2. is there a better way of doing this. Any advise appreciated. thanks
BTC instructions -
