Can you use WinDWFlash.exe with external USB drive

Just obtained a 800A DVD+R/W drive (Khypermedia) and I want to upgrade to 822A firmware.

I am going to mount it in an external USB 2.0 enclosure so can I upgrade and flash using the WinDWFlash.exe program over USB?

I am running windows XP.

I just want to avoid having to mount in a desktop to put the firmware in and then move to external enclosure

Just a word of caution.

Many people have had trouble with the 822a in an enclosure box with either usb or firewire. Do a search in this forum. One of the threads is below.

Also try searching under forum member beach-hobo as he has posted alot on this topic.

good luck :slight_smile:

it would be best to first upgrade the unit then try to stick in an enclosure.
