I tried to backup the firmware in DOS with WFLASH. I used the commands "wflash ls3j.bin /pm /rd" and "wflash ls3j.bin /pm /rd /256" because the BIN files for this drive are 256 KB. LS3J.bin is a file that doesn't exist; that's where I want the firmware backup to go. Both times, WFLASH said that it didn't recognize the command line parameter "/rd". On "The Firmware Page", you said
I'm not sure if it actually works, It wont on my LTR-52246S
I would like to find out if it is able to make backups of Sanyo based drive firmwares. If you have a LTR-****1B drive, please try different methods for backing up. Contact me if it works, or if you have questions about what you should try.
What happened when you tried to backup your firmware? Did I use the wrong command? My LTR-12101B is on the Primary Master of my motherboard because my hard drive is on an ATA133 PCI controller.
Thanks for your help! I am also interested in finding out how to do this.
