Panasonic SR 8586

Hi guys,

well i have a panasonic 12x SR 8586 dvd rom which i have changed the firmware of to be a region free drive … the new firmware made the drive to read as Creative DVD rom

now i wan to make it back to my old firmware … any idea …

i have downloaded some firmware for it … but the problem come when i start with dos mode i get a message of you have to start in real dos mode …

i have windows XP Pro and ME

i tried starting the PC with XP dos Startup disk
Windows 98 Startup disk
Windows ME Startup disk

in all i got the same message of needing to start the PC in real dos mode

any idea

What firmware is currently on your drive, and what are you trying to flash to?

The Windows 98se boot disk would be the best choice.
