Hi, all!

Does anybody own this drive here? I need firmware backup for this device.
My drive died after unsuccessful firmware update. :frowning:

Thanks and sorry for my bad english.

Welcome to cdfreaks. :slight_smile:

We hear you clear and loudly [I]0duvan[/I] so please don’t create multiple posts. It’s against our rules.

Regarding your problem, is this a dell branded slim drive? What firmware did you use to “flash”?

If you kill a drive with firmware not intended for drive in question, don’t RMA it. Take your responsibility, trash that drive and buy a new one!

Sorry for multiple post. :o

Yes, it is drive included in dell inspirion 6400 :a Windows was falling into a BLUE SCREEN while dvd discs reading.

I used firmware update (ad18) from dell support site intended specifically for this drive. It caused error while processing. And there isn’t drive in task manager now.

What is RMA? Are you sure that trashing is only way?

Thanks.
