[qanda]This thread is about the Optiarc AD-7203S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hey guys. I have just bought the Optiarc 7203S drive and at first tried updating to the latest official Firmware (1.09) from Sony NEC's website and it just says 'Update Failed', although it does recognise the drive correctly.
So I have downloaded Binflash 1.46b to try taking a dump of the current firmware (1.06 according to Nero Infotool) and then to flash Liggy and Dee's firmware instead but neither works.
When trying to perform a dump it says "error reading firmware from drive" and when trying to Flash Liggy's Firmware it says "The firmware file expects a different bootcade on your drive. You are not allowed to continue. Found 0xFFFF - expected 0x3134."
Anyone have any ideas on how I can flash this?! Any help would be much appreciated.
P.S. I have made a burn ok with the drive but when trying to read DVDR's DVDFab HD complains about "DVDFab encounters a reading error (may be caused by copy protection) which can be removed by using Path Player...etc etc" which is odd as I don't have any copy protection on my Discs which was why I was trying to update the Firmware (and my old NEC drive reads it fine).
