[B]Philips SPD3400CC Firmware JP03 (2007/02/16) Dump[/B]

PHILIPS_SPD3400CC_JP03_FIRMWARE.rar

SPD3400CC is an 18x USB2.0 external DVD-RAM writer. The drive inside the enclosure is essentially a LiteON DH-18A1P clone.

It is a pretty old firmware, but maybe someone would need it at some point … you can flash it with CodeKing’s flash utility.

New firmware for: Philips SPD2413P GP03

Changes from GP02 to GP03:

• Released on 25 June 2007.
• Improved writing quality on several media.
• Some discs can be written faster (if the quality allows this), some discs will be written slower as the quality can not be guaranteed at the former high speeds

New firmware for: Philips SPD2412 P1.5

Changes from P1.4 to P1.5
• Released on 7 January 2008.
• Improved behaviour on some 99minutes CDR discs.
• Improved reading of recorded DVD-R discs.

New Firmware for the Philips SPD2413:

GP04 Firmware

First Burn w/GP04

And in case it’s not clear, the comment about the burn is humor. :bigsmile:

Anyone know where I can download the GP04 firmware? The above link is no longer valid.

I’m in for the request

Found on the web while searching through Google.

Last link I found was from msi computers. But it’s no longer working. The only one was the above.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: Found the original thread of the link here @ cdfreaks.com. :stuck_out_tongue:

Just an FYI, but the best places to find stock BenQ optical drive firmware are:

  1. BenQ EU WWW site: http://www.benq-eu.com/support/downloads/index.cfm?productline=28

  2. BenQ EU FTP server: ftp://mx02.benq-eu.com/dvd-rw/firmware/

Note that the FTP server has more and older firmwares than any of the web sites.

The current locations of the ASPI files needed to use BQFlasher are:

  1. Nero FTP server: ftp://ftp6.nero.com/wnaspi32.dll

  2. FrogASPI WWW site: http://www.frogaspi.org/download/wnaspi32.dll

[B]Off topic[/B], (don’t think that matters, now that BenQ burners are history anyway. :bigsmile:)

Thanks [I]negritude[/I] for updated fw links. :clap:

FTP is always the best way to go guys. :smiley:

BTW, note that Ahead Nero AG doesn’t allow direct linking to any of their files/software.

Not sure what you mean. The link I posted works. If you mean in terms of their web site rules, this is an FTP link, so I don’t think the rule applies. No one is circumventing their web menus or navigation in this case.

Plus, it’s frankly their responsibility to block direct linking if they don’t want you to do that.
