After my first DDW-081 dieing after doing a firmware upgrade to B372 I would like to find out the best/proper process for doing this so as not to destroy another drive.
What is the best way to get a new from the box DDW-081 updated?
What is the best firware version to use on it currently?
What steps should be taken to flash the firmware? Should it be at a certain version first before upgrading?
What is the best IDE for it to be on and so on?
Is it better to flash under XP or 98?
Any tips would be appreciated.
