Creative 121032 to Plextor PX-W1210A Firmware


I try the procedure from CDINFO.COM. It is fine, but the hardware name is the same with latest firmware version.

Anyone know how to modiy the hardware displayname on Creative 121032 CDRW to Plextor PX-W1210A? So that we can update the Firmware from Plextor directly. Below is the procedure to update the frimware of Creative to Plextor.

Pleas email mail or post in the forum


Plextor PX-W1210A

----------------------------DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK--------------------
"…You can also use the Plextor firmware with compatible recorders (Iomega 121032, TDK 121032) if you:

  1. Download and unzip the firmware file
  2. Open PlexFirm.ini. In the 3rd line there should be:
    Inquiry=PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W1210A;

change it to: Inquiry=;

Then by running PXFirm.exe, you get a selection screen to select the drive, press update … and you’re done. I am using this firmware right now on my Iomega and it’s 100% fully functional. I assume that it must also work for the Creative drive…"
