Firmware update

Hello All…

I have a Phillips DVD +/- RW DVD8701 (Rev 5D24) Where can I check to make sure the firmware is updated for this? I was told that my Phillips is actually a BenQ DW1640.

Thanks

Guess nobody knows? ?

This may help. But, be careful - you will invalidate any warranty and, as with any flash, if something goes wrong you could damage your drive!

Hi :slight_smile:
Take a look here.
Your model doesn’t appear to be listed, but check f/w for similarities.
For more info/options on flashing take a look here.

Just a guess, but I think these were issued in Dell machines and , for some reason, not listed on Philip’s site.

Seems to be a bit of help here , including downloads.

It did come with my Dell. I will check. Thanks to all for replying !
