I have a DELL Latitiude D610 with a slimline ND-6100A with 104D firmware.
I want to be able to burn DVD-R media, and thus want to cross flash this to a ND-6500A (FAST)
I can read the original firmware okay using binflash (-dump) but can’t seem to cross flash it.
The output from binflash and some device info is listed below.
FYI: I’m using Linux.
List of supported devices:
Device : /dev/sg1
Vendor : _NEC
Model : DVD+RW ND-6100A
Firmware : 104D
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: ATA Model: Hitachi HTS54106 Rev: MB3O
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 05
Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: _NEC Model: DVD+RW ND-6100A Rev: 104D
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 05
Identified drive: 3
Detected drive from Firmware: 3
Probably mixing up master and slave firmware.
This is very likely to DAMAGE your drive or make it INACCESSIBLE!
It is not allowed to continue here. If you really think you have to and know what you are doing, please ask for a personal Binflash build
Firmware is for a different drive
I haven’t been able to find detailed information on the “reverse” firmware, so don’t want to try those just yet.
What is reverse firmware… and why would I need it? Can I get a 5100@5500 “reverse” firmware.
I’ve also tried booting from a DOS Usb key and using the TDB flasher… similar resutls
Thanks in advance!!
