Firmware Update to a Sony DW-D22A

I have a Sony DW-D22A and understand this is the same as the DRU-710A and I should use BSOY firmware

-I have downloaded “BSOY.EXE” from http://www.liteonit.com/ODD/English...re_dvd%20rw.asp
-I have the progarm LtnFW from http://dhc014.rpc1.org/howto.htm#LtnFW
-I can back my current firmware up using this program.

What I am unsure of is how to update the firmware of my Sony DW-D22A. My understanding is that I run LtnFW, select a binary file from a folder and then select “update” and hit start. I do not know how to get this binary file and the file I downloaded “BSOY.EXE” but it is an executable. Do I just run this executable and I don’t need to use “LtnFW”?

Can you please provide me with some guidance?

Just use the version from the codeguys http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares/dvdrw/1633S.BS0Y.patched-cf-mcled.rar

You can also flash CS0T, it’s even better and supports more mediacodes

Leo,
what do I do with this “.rar” file? I am not sure how to flash my drive with this.

Cheers,

Unpack with WinRAR. You will find an .exe file in it. Run the .exe to flash your drive. In a PM I mentioned a second file with Sony ID. It’s not in there I think, if you need a file with Sony ID you can create one with the OmniPatcher.
