Have a new drive(with a very new firmware version) or an old drive that is not upgraded with a newer firmware?
I'm interested in having those firmware versions.
Use MTKFLASH, get it here
Extract all files to a diskette or to a FAT16/32 partitioned drive as DOS won't see NTFS partitions.
Drive must be on the main IDE controller!!!
Boot into real dos modus.
Go to the directory where you have the extracted files.
MTKFLASH "x" R /B /M filename.bin
Where "x" is a number from 1 to 4:
1: Primary master
2: Primary slave
3: Secondary master
4: Secondary slave
It may take a while to finish so don't panic. This will give a filename.bin file that is about 500-550k. This is the file that I want So send it to me at email@example.com
To flash a drive using MTKFLASH:
MTKFLASH "x" W /B /M filename.bin
"x" is still the same as above.
This have been tested by me and worked for me! But everybody that have used the programs and have anything to comment/tell/explain feel free to reply here.
And don't use the readout.bat and upgrade.bat files........
Note that this may only work for drives with mediatek(All Lite-On drives from LTR-16102B and up have mediatek chipset) chipset.....for the others I'm more unsure....
