I posted a request for general advice in another thread, but go no reply, so i thought i’d take a chance and go ahead anyway.
I used Binflash GUI 1.62, which recognised my drive as [Optiarc DVD RW AD-5280S 1.01]
I pressed ‘flash’ and chose the file 101bt_rpc1.bin (part of the 101.7z download) but i got the error message: ‘Firmware is for a different drive’.
So can someone please tell me what the problem is? My best guess is that it’s a Sony optiarc rather than a NEC, but i thought that was just a question of badging? Perhaps i’m doing something wrong?
Any advice appreciated.
