I have successfully flashed my 3500AG (internal) using necflash. I don't know if flashing over firewire will cause any problems or not. If you want to proceed, do this.
Put necflash and the firmware you want to flash to on the desktop.
double click on necflash to open the terminal app.
Copy the string that looks like this:
(my user name is 'khan')
3.Go to FILE -> NEW SHELL
Paste the string in the new window and add -scan
It should look like this:
- Hit return.
You should get something like this:
List of supported devices:
Device : A:
Vendor : _NEC
Model : DVD_RW ND-3500AG
Firmware : 2.18
My 3500AG is designated as A:
- So if I wanted to flash to the firmware LD_V1.4_FAST.bin I would type this in the terminal window:
/Users/khan/Desktop/necflash -flash -v -s /Users/khan/Desktop/LD_V1.4_FAST.bin A:
Just be sure to use your user name, and your device designation.
