You must create a shortcut of the Windows flash file, go to properties, and at the end of the Target: field, enter /NCM888 after the quotes. now, apply, double click the shortcut, and you're on your way to 140E!!
I actually read the windows flash program in hex, and found reference to /NCM888, so I tried it with the windows program. Some of you may have tried launching the windows program from a command prompt with /NCM888, but that won't work.
BTW, my cd's write properly now too.
