Hi. I have a LaCie Porsche DVD±R drive, which is a NEC ND-2500A in a box with a USB2 interface and power supply - because I’m running it off a laptop.
I’ve successfully flashed it to NEC 1.07. I’d like to flash it to Herrie’s 1.07v2b4. If something goes wrong with the drive, and I need warranty service, I’ll need to flash it back to official NEC firmware.
Is there a tool that will enable me to backup the existing firmware?
Can I flash NEC 1.07 to it after I’ve flashed Herrie’s 1.07v2b4?
My problem is - using pure DOS mode, the USB2 drivers don’t work, so I have no access to the drive. I’m using an Adaptec USB2 connect for notebooks PC card, in cardbus mode.
