#1

I have a Dell Dimension E520 (DM061). this machine has a “TSSTcorpDVD±RW TS-H53A” and I can’t find information of this unit in Internet.
Toshiba/Samsung does not offer any tracking of this model of drive.
I need to know technical information, drivers, firmware, etc.
Can any one help me ?.


#2

The model number for the burner seems to be missing a number.

The Dell support website has downloads for the Dimension E520 including firmware for TS-H553A and TS-H653A drives.

TS-H553A is [I]similar [/I]to SH-W163A [B]but don’t even think about crossflashing[/B] :eek:
TS-H653A is SH-S183A (no idea if crossflashing works)

I’ve crossflashed a TS-H653A to SH-S183A according to these instructions:

I killed my 163 by trying 553 firmware - I should have been warned since Dell firmware had different file size than Samsung retail firmware.:rolleyes:

according to these instructions:

Same information can now also be found in the Samsung Mini-FAQ :bigsmile:
