Hello, I have a DELLXPS600 with a certain Philps/Ben-Q 8701 DVD/RW+ Drive.
About an year ago I flashed the drive with and wrong firmware, and now the drive is completely dead, no lights are blinking nor is the drive recognised by windows or the BIOS, not suprised. However after looking around the internet I heard there are many people who have sucessfully reflashed their faulty Drives with the correct firmware. I managed to get hold of the correct firmware, it is an .CVT file, however I need help in how to reflash it. there drive can only be connected throuhg IDE cables.
I need a way to force flash the firmware (.CVT file) on to the drive location on the IDE Secondary Master Port. Please help
