I have a Toshiba XM6104TA SCSI CD-Rom. It had firmware revision 1001. It worked pretty well as a data drive but it’s DAE performance was pretty bad. But it would play audio CDs. I figured I had nothing to lose, so I flashed the firmware with the updated 1404 firmware from the firmware page. Huge mistake. The flash seemed to work OK, but now there is no DAE at all. It won’t even play an audio CD any more. Data CDs still seem to read, so it isn’t a total loss.
Does anyone have the older Toshiba firmwares? I’d like to flash it back to an earlier version. I recommend that this 1404 version be avoided.
Anyone care to recommend a new SCSI CD or DVD drive that does decent DAE? Thanks.
