Does anyone have a firmware file for this drive ? A hacked one will be worth a try. I tried using the ones at Aopen’s site but they say wrong drive,thus the need for a hacked one I guess. I’ts an hour drive to the nearest Officemax where I have a warranty,the one here went out of business lol,them too huh.
Update…I found a firmware file that works,all is fine now and a slightly faster drive to boot
OK - Where did you find the firmware. I need it also.
I found it here. I hope it’s ok to post a web address.
I found the A110 in the 1680/aar worked for me. I seems to work well now but can’t seem to burn dvd video,data burning is ok tho. I’ll have to try another program(using nero 7.5)
Sawyer4444, did the flash firm/ware work or do you still get the error:
“Sorry this flash utility can’t update this model”?
His one and only post is from: 21-10-2006
I gave up and purchased a new drive.
Thanks for the reply. Sorry about the failure? The firmware flash from ‘Micro Advantage…’ to ‘AOpen DUW1608’ and then to ‘AOpen DUW1616’ usually works great.
