[QUOTE=gwibz;2180551]I realize this is more than one month old now, but have you been able to flash your Optiarc drive using the firmware found on the vendor website (or a hacked version of it)? I have the same drive and same problem.
I tried the firmware on my drive and it didn’t work! Oh well, it just said update failed. I do have an Asus laptop and it said that it doesn’t work for OEM drives, I guess I’ll have to look out for the update from Asus, or maybe another OEM manufacturer.
And no I haven’t managed to find any hacked versions of firmware for this drive. I’ve barely been able to find any mention of this drive at all. I guess it is too new.
