I am trying to downgrade firmware on my Plextor 16/10/40a. It will not allow me to do so. I have been in contact with Plextor, they say you should be able to downgrade to firmware revision 1.00 for as long as you do it correctly. I have done everything they told me to do, hundreds of times.
They have offered me to return the drive so they can do it for me at no charge. This is not a service Plextor offer but are willing to do so on this occasion! I have read posts and issues regarding firmware downgrading and as far as I can believe you cant. So what can Plextor do other than replace the drive with an older one with the firmware revision 1.00.
What is the truth behind Plextor and downgrading firmware? Can this be done yourself? I can downgrade but not to revision 1.00, 1.01 or 1.02. (even though Plextor say you can).
Which revision for my writer will copy Safedisk 2 protected games? I have heard it’s 1.00 or 1.01, is this correct?
All help appreciated!
