I have a philips 824k/00 drive and i flashed it with philips firmware 3.3 (philips flash tool))
Now it’s called 824DP in the Device Manager.
I’m not able to flash recent firmware upgrades from Philips because the drive is not recognized by philips flash tools anymore.
I suppose the 3.3 firmware was not designed for my drive (824k/00) but for the 824/40. That’s why Philips took it off their webside.
Now I can’t go back to the old firmware, but I want the newest firmware upgrades.
So my question:
Can I flash my drive to a Benq 800A. I read it was EXACTLY the same hardware.
Then I would be able to get the newest firmware updates from Benq.
PS: I’m not interested in -R-Support. I would be happy to have an UPDATED +R burner.
