#1

I have a external usb NEC 3520a with firmware v. 1.04 and would like to update the firmware to the offical release v 3.04 How do I do this? the computer also has a internal NEC 2500A burner installed Thanks :bow:

Probably the easist way to do this is to remove the external drive from its enclosure and place it on an internal IDE channel and flash it there


#3

Thanks Dee but is it possible just to unplug the internal drive and then flash the external usb one with a usb connection

FWIW
I have no problem what so ever flashing with my USB 2.0 external drive. However, I have heard some enclosures are picky and may not flash properly. I think it all depends on the chipset in the enclosure.

I would think the newer enclosures should allow flashing. I flashed my CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives in my USB 2 enclosures. My enclosures all have a NEC chipset.

Thanks all my NEC flashed o.k. as a usb device and now has v3.04
