[qanda]This thread is about the Sony DW-D26A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]So, I was haveing some read/write issues with a Sony DW-D26A. Decided to flash the firmware before trashing the drive. Read the thread here:
followed the Black Wizards Advice and used the 1693S.KC4B.patched-cf.exe file to flash the firmware. Before flashing I DID back up the original JYS3 firmware and the EEPROM. After flashing I rebooted and BIOS recognized the drive as a LITE-ON 1693S. Windows proceeded to detect the drive, attempt to install it, and fail with a Code 19 error. Now windows can’t start the device and that means I can’t use the typical utilities to restore the old firmware.
Any Ideas? I’ve looked at the XSF app frome codeguys, but don’t know the exact syntax of the command I should run.
Thanks for any help.
