i own a NEC 3530A dvd burner, and i tried flashing it with necflasher found here:
i used the firmware i found in the same page too.
so this is what happened. i firstly made a backup of my own firmware. everything smooth. i still have it.
then i applyied the new one. it starts flashing, everything goes smoothly (no errors or anything) until it says that i have to restart. i restart the pc happily and…
the dvd burner makes strange noises
i think, well, bad luck i’ll restore the one i backed up!
i try and… get this error
firmware expects different bootcode. found 0xFFFF expected =x3035
i tell him confidently to go on restoring the firmware i personally backed up, goes on for a while until when entering safe mode make the error
error entering safe mode
error while flashing. :a
i try to keep calm, and restart windows in safe mode with command promt only and try again flashing my backup firmware… but no results.
should i throw away the drive?
thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
