Strange Firmware version NEC ND-7550A

I’ve bought a ND-7550A and was looking for an RPC1 firmware on Liggy’s website. The Firmware version numbers there are quite different to what I have got. My drive is shown as “_NEC DVD_RW ND-7550A K072”. Could someone shed some light on the firmware naming conventions and recommend a RPC1 firmware to use. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Could you please upload this firmware? You should be able to use any master firmware. In case you need a slave firmware, Binflash should complain when you try to flash.

Normally the Kxxx firmwares are beta firmares from NEC itself. Did you buy this drive at a normal vendor?

@Liggy

Hope the firmware upload worked! Will try and flash a RPC1 firmware. NecWindump would not recognise the firmware as valid NEC firmware and didn’t show the media strategies.

Bought the drive from a shop which specialises in laptop batteries and accessories. Drive came in a brown corrugated cardboard box and it was the drive only.

Unfortunately it did not. I’ll PM you my email address. You can send the file to this address then.

I have no idea why it did not work. Maybe I need to check the behaviour if cookies are not set. Did you get an “uploaded successfully” message?
