I have a HP DVD640i purchased last October. It is recognized in Windows as a 640c and is manufactured by Benq (says so on the label on top of the drive). When I bought it I visited the HP website and downloaded a newer firmware, JS04, and it has been working fine. I recently decided to look to see if a newer firmware was available. HP has almost no trace of of this drive on the website and specifically no drivers at all for download. I found this on the HP site but clicking on the link for the drive brings up a blank page that says “Content Error”. Searching for Drivers and support I was able to find this which has nothing available for download. Has HP abandoned this drive already?
I have seen some posts saying that the DVD640c can be flashed to a Benq DW 1625. Would there be a benefit in doing this? Are there still new FWs being put out for the 1625?
