if have been excessively using the forums search as well as google but could not find a solution.
Having a NEC ND-6650A in my Dell Inspiron 500m (replacing my old DVD-Rom) it has been running without problems so far. Today I wanted to update its firmware to 1.62 (Original version from liggydee.cdfreaks.com).
The NEC has got the firmware 1.23, DMA is ON (secondary channel), it is recognised by Binflash/Nero InfoTool as “_NEC DVD±RW ND-6650A” (with 5 blanks between _NEC and DVD).
When trying to flash with Binflash (1.27 from micheldeboer.nl), after having accepted the “legal disclaimer”, Binflash refused to flash the firmware with the comment:
“Cannot determine whether flashing your drive with this firmware is safe. Continueing here is very likely to DAMAGE your drive. Are you really sure that you want to continue? If unsure say NO”,
following “Firmware is for a different drive” after having pressed NO.
I have also tried to flash 1.42 (orig) and 1.62 (mod by Liggy) all with the same result.
Has anybody an idea what the reason for that could be, or (even better) any solution?
Thanks in advance,
