Hello to all, I'm having the same problem with the HP DVD Writer 940i. How do i flash the firmware?? I don't see firmware for Linux or am i just missing it, or maybe it doesn't matter? i am a newbie when it comes to Linux and this is why i'm not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciatedsteve509
Nearly all nowadays Firmware flashers run on windos >=XP only.
They should not work under WINE.
Look for a dos-utility from manufacturer or rpc1.org if available and create a boot floppy.
Some guys manage to boot windos xp from a DVD, too, google.
