I have a old samsung CD drive. I want to cross flash it with any firmware which reads worstly damaged cd. As firmware controls the mechanicals of the drive.
Could any one guide me which firmware is best for damaged cd. I will give the ODD type after some time cause I need to connect the drive to the system yet.


get the most recent firmware for your drive from There is nothing else you can do. And if the drive is really old, then you won’t even be able to flash it.


Hey mciahel, could u (or any body) tell me which is other brand firmware for reading damaged cd.

There is no such. What you seek for is wishful thinking, sorry.
