NEC-6500A firmware won't detect

Okay I know this is NOT recommended, but atm I don’t have one of those IDE converter cables. I’m trying to flash my drive with the winGUI/cmd flash and both versions of the software don’t detect my drive, even though the drive works fine for regular burning etc… Anyone have any ideas, aside from the cable work around… I’m not sure if I can use DOS, since I don’t have a floppy drive and am too lazy for a boot CD! :disagree: Thanks
