[quote=Dee-27;2152940]I created 1.Z1 and 1.Z2 for this drive. I.Z2 is more stable. Both firmwares are based on Liggy’s 1.06bt.
If you need to modify a firmware for your own use. I would suggest using 1.06bt and doing your own mods, as 1.Z1 and 1.Z2 has re-written writing strategies and may only be stable for the MID’s that these strategies were created for.[/quote]
Thank you, So just dump my orig 1.06 FW and write the 1.Z1 or 1.Z2 to the drive as i assume i can flash back as you can dump the eprom from this drive. I will take you advice as i know you mess with these drives alot so i will flash it from 1.06 to 1.Z2 which also is in a RCP1 version and DVDROM bit set all +R. Thanks for the heads up on the 1.Z2 firmware. I don’t need the drive but you get addicted so i will have one Optiarc at least and the PATA drives i think are at the end of there life. I think by Feb all PATA drives will be no longer be made and SATA will be the future and PATA will be like scsi once was a memory. I remember that. a 200.00 to 300.00 adaptec scsi controller to run scsi ODD hardware. Time and changes wait for no one!, Thanks again.
