Actually, it appears it’s not that easy.
I just bought this Norwood drive, relabeled BenQ DW1650
that has the original GCFC firmware on it. Tried flashing
with BQFlasher.exe (with nero file) and the BCHC and now
my tray keeps opening and stays open.
Any thoughts? I realize I am a new guy, but haven’t seen too
much about these cases besides “it’s the firmware.” So to that,
I’d reply I’ve tried several BenQ DW1650 firmwares and they all
seem to do it (possibly due to my initial flashing and incomplete
flashing thereafter?) Any help would be appreciated.
Also, just a day before I bought an I/O Magic drive (relabeled BenQ
DW1655) and was able to use BQFlasher fine in updated its firmware
to an actual BenQ – I forget which firmware as I’m not home now.
Should I try flashing the 1650 with the 1655 firmware? I’d like to avoid
this only because then both drives would “read” as 1655 and it’d make for
an eventual “shoot, wrong drive” on my part. Sorry for the long post.
