Hi, i have a 3550A drive, firmware rev 1.05 and tried to update it with the original 1.07 firmware i got a flash error, and the drive started blinking. When i used binflash the flashing process stalled at 0x10000. Somehow the firmware is now f**cked up, and it’s not even possible to read discs with it, Binflash doesn’t recognise it anymore. The original nec 1.05 flasher does recognise it, but gives me the flash error. The drive doesn’t blink anymore, except when powering on.
Desperate i tried using btflash or btflashx, but it unfortunately gave me the following error:
Select the drive to be used: 1. \\.\G: _NEC DVD_RW ND-3550A 1.05 Enter the number of your choice: 1 Processing the Bootcode file... Reading checksum .... // sptxSay.DeviceIoControl: x79 (121) The semaphore timeout period has expired. // sptxSay x 0 0 4 E (ioctl status length senseLength) Error!
Is there any low level (DOS) way to recover my drive? Or is it just become a paperweight?
