i noticed that in Liggy's page there's only a 1.23 firmware for this drive. my drive , bundled with a dell notebook, is 102c version. liggie, are you interested in a dump of this firmware?
On my NEC Firmware page (see link in signature) you can already find this firmware.
I have the same drive, NEC 6650A, in my Dell Lattitude D610 with same firmware.
Pentavalle: Did you upgrade this stock firmware?
no firmware update in dell site, this is the latest firmware
