Flashing firmware

I have a cyberdrive cw058d with a 160d firm, my operating system doesn’t recognise it ( i work on os X). I read on a news and verify this information, that it was the same firmware as the mitsumi CR-480ATE , Apple support said that this cdrw is recognise. I open the cdrw there was just a sticker on the chipset where it was written “cw058d”
I would like to know if i can flash my chipset with the CR-480ATE , and if there is any risk to do it.

Thanks for your help. :slight_smile:

I don’t think that the firmware flasher will let you convert the drive, but if the drives are the same, and you want to give it a try, then that’s the only way to know for sure unless someone else has done it.
