Can't flash Benq 1625



I have tried many different firmware versions for the BENQ 1625 and no dice.
I’m using WinDWFlash. My drive is in an external Firewire enclosure using the Oxford chipset connected to a Combo Cardbus USB & Firewire card.

My Laptop is a Dell C600.

The flash utility returns a success after applying and once I cycle the drive it reverts to the previous firmware.



attach the drive directly to your IDE interface on the secondary channel. forget about the firewire card, it won’t work.


Thanx I will move this drive from my laptop to my Server.


It usually work on the USB interface as well. But firewire is sometimes tricky.
