Sony DW-D26A

#1

hi all…just ordered the sony dw-d26a drive and i’m looking for firmware updates.

can’t find anything on sony’s site. someone mentioned this is really a liteon drive, but i’m not finding anything on there site either.

any ideas or suggestions as where to go?


#2

Go to Lite On forum on this site, I found there useful stuff 4 my DW-D22A


#3

I heard that this is a 1653S , I tryed to update my drive with a firmware of this drive and now my drive is dead, I’m trying to revive it using mtkflash, but it is not updating, does anybody know how I can revive my drive, it is being recognized by the bios as the drive which I updated the firmware with :confused:


#4

I hope you backed up a copy of your firmware before flashing. If you did, please zip it up and send a copy of it to me (see my sig).

1/ The D26A is not a 1633S or a 1653S…
22A: 1633S
24A: 1653S
26A: 1673S
28A: 1693S

2/ You will need to use MtkFlash for recovery. First, read dhc014’s guide carefully. Second, you need to read [post]1007174[/post].

3/ You will need a 73S firmware for the recovery. Either use your firmware backup (if you have one) or the JS07 or JY03 firmwares.


#5

thank you very much, my drive is back from the dead, and unfortunately I didn’t make a back up of my old firmware, :sad:

I have the same problem…I got illegal disc errors and thought flashing would help, but apparently it didn’t. Hell, I think I might’ve messed up…I can’t reflash my drive into anything else.


#8

Hey can anyone help me find the drivers for Sony DW-D26A for windows 98se. I would really appreciate it because i have tons of stuff piling up that i need to burn, thanks.


#9

First, do not crosspost; one post is enough. :cop: Second, you do not need drivers for your drive, and no drivers for any DVD drive exists. If you have the appropriate burning software installed, it should burn.
