NEC 3500AG firmware update for MAC



My system is a MAC running OS X (Tiger)

I’ve got an internal NEC 3500AG disguised as a Lacie 16X DVD dual layer drive.
Right now it’s set-up as a slave to my primary drive.

Firmware according to Toast is 2.07

My questions are:

  1. How do update the firmware so I can actually use 16x
  2. What is the process on a MAC
  3. I’m not super techie but I can probably figure stuff out with some direction.


You may want to check out my Binflash commandline guide which should work on Mac too. A little shell know-how will be needed here.
