Hello and welcome,

Download the FLASHER…
http://dvdpro.club.st/firmware/BenQ/WinDWFlash.rar

Download your latest FirmWare in .cvt format (go for B7T9.cvt on top of the page)…
http://dvdpro.club.st/firmware/BenQ_FW.htm#DW1620

Disconnect from the NET, close ALL proggy´s running,
fire up the flasher, point it towards the RIGHT drive (BenQ clone, make sure your drive is one, i did not check, your responsibility), select the .cvt file you downloaded, hold your breath the power does not go off for some 40 seconds, reboot…

Welcome to CD-Freaks Club, BenQ thread, the best wishes for a happy new year to you… :iagree:

DTS,

WinFlash comes as a .RAR file

You probably know all this, i just want to save us some time…

>To unRAr the file you want to dLoad WinRAR trial (very good program)

so, confirm you double-click winflasher.EXE and not .RAR :rolleyes:
