ND-3570A 104B Firmware Update Issues

#1

I have been trying to update this firmware from 1.04 to 1.12 but since 1.12 does not support update from 1.04 I need to find some Intermediate firmware to make the transition.

I attempted to use command prompt with necflash.exe… First… there needs to be better instructions to this exe file.

I punched in

Desktop
ecflash -flash 112_orig.bin E
but It had no idea what to do next.

I figured I had to drop the old firmware first but I can’t becaue I don’t know the exact location or the name of the firmware to drop.

I have only the Genaric Windows Firmware Last updated 2001.

It burns DVD’s fine… but it isn’t supporting Dual Layer.

First of all… Does this drive Support Dual Layer Burning(it says it does…but…)?

It reads the DL disks fine… this is the information I get from ImgBurn Software

Optiarc DVD±RW ND-3570A 104B (ATA)

Maybe this disk isn’t supported on 104B firmware?

Any Help would be appriciated.

Thanks,

Like this guide?

ecflash -flash 112_orig.bin E
but It had no idea what to do next.

You missed the : after the E
But why not use the GUI version instead if you don’t know how to work with command line programs?
