Hp writer 400c

Hi, Im a new member to this forum and happy to join the community. I was reading a few threads on this site. Supposedly you can update or “flash” the hp 400c to another writer where it can read write and burn dvd+r DL. If this is true can someone help me with the step by step process. Please keep in mind i am not as educated as most of you with computers.

Can anyone help me with this one?

Is there someone out there? Any ideas?

@ GhOsTCd,

Welcome to the Forum

Why don’t you learn how to use the magic Forum Search button? If you did you would find a couple HP 400c Cross Flashing threads such as ->

Personally I would not waste the time/effort and with any of these CrossFlashs on a DVD Burner that is over 5 years old and instead purchase a brand new up to date Modern DVD Burner that will Burn DL Media right out of the Box

Even crossflashed stil will remain a crappo burner in these days.

Appreciate the responses, but ive read these articles. None of them give a step by step process or links that still work. Im lost because im not tech savy. I have the windows flasher but I dont know what to do from there. Buying a new burner would make sense but I cant spend the money right now.

@ GhOsTCd,

If you closely review the HP 400c CrossFlash threads you will see that the HP 400c cross flashing is an iffy hit or miss evolution and will most like result in a dead non-functional Drive.

Once again as Forum Member chef states if you somehow were successful in the HP 400c CrossFlash the CrossFlashed Drive is not going to perform very good with the Modern DL Media that is available today. Once again you will end up with a 5 year old Drive which will not perform anywhere near the performance of a new up to date Modern Drive that was specifically designed for current new modern DL Media.

If you are bound and determined to attempt the HP 400c crossflash to BenQ 822A ALL the necessary Files for the HP 400c crossflash to BenQ 822A are included in the below refreanced download link. Suggest reviewing Forum Member scan80269 #26 posting in Forum Posting (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f92/can-hp-dvd-400i-c-flashed-benqs-firmware-102267/index2.html#post781259) for the sequence that these files are used. If you unaware of how to use the files in the HP 400c crossflash to BenQ 822A then closely read the HP 400c CrossFlash threads.
