[/QUOTE]Q: What is Crossflashing?
A: Crossflashing is a term used for turning a drive model into another.
This could be simply flashing an OEM firmware onto a drive. In this case the only thing that changes is the drive string (how the drive is identified in Windows)
Another way of crossflashing is used for upgrading an older drive to a newer drive.
Below is a short list of which drives can and canâ€™t be upgraded using the crossflash method.
that is not good explanation to me.[/QUOTE]
It's the best explanation we can give at the moment. If you would have read some more threads, you knew what exactly this means.
sorry, but i have not so much money to buy new recorder if somethings bad go on while flashing. so, i allways want to know exactly what is possible, and what is not.
If you don't want to risk losing your drive, you should not flash at all. There is always a slight risk when flashing, that your drive will not work afterwards.
But to make it short, updating from 2.18 to 2.28 should work without ruining your drive. But it's nothing anyone here can assure you, since it also depends on your specific hard- and software.
