Yesterday I got my first DVD-burner, BenQ 1620, OEM-G7L9. Like many other owners of a OEM drives, I would like to make it PRO with crossflashing. I read carefully all the threads regarding this topic, but my case is a little bit different. I installed the burner in an external USB 2.0 enclosure, chipset-ALI M5621-A1. As far as I know the original BenQ EW162I is “1620 Pro” + “ALi
M5621 A1” like in my case.
The questions are:
Has somebody tried to crossflash 1620 in a external enclosure, I mean through the USB 2.0 port?
How safe is the procedure for the drive?
Do I need to do the first crossflashing to Pro with “WinDXFlash” in a Desktop PC-IDE Port?
When make the drive PRO, can I use the official firmwares for BenQ EW162I?
Thanks in advance.
My configuration is: Compaq, Armada M300, P3-600, 320 MB, Fujitsu 4200rpm, BusLink PCMCIA-USB 2.0 card, WinXP Home.
