Edit firmware

Hello, what it programs I should use to edit a firmware (bin, rom).
It is possible replace the firmware of the Cretive 8432 for that of 121032 .
Thank you.

Assuming the firmware doesn’t use a CRC check, you should be able to use any hex editor such as ‘Hex Workshop’ to modify the firmware. I wouldn’t go about modifying firmware unless I had the original programming & compiler for the drive. Only the drive manufacturers would have these. If you really want to modify the firmware, be warned as bad or damaged firmware can permanently damage the CD writer and this includes modifying the firmware of other hardware too. :a

You can use the program ‘MTKflash’ to force firmware on to the drive without any checks to see if it’s the right firmware. This is normally done to overclock the Liteon’s. I would not go about sticking firmware on a drive unless I read about some other people doing it successfully. Have a look around the web and on forums first. :wink:
