Norwood Micro DW 1650

I installed my Norwood Micro DW 1650, which is a rebadged Benq.
I went to flash it to F/W BCIC from GCFC, and I am told by the flasher that the drive is not allowed to be flashed.
Is there some kind of F/W lock on Norwoods?

You have to use BQFlasher since you’re converting an OEM drive to retail. The tool can be found within one of the stickies.
