Learning is fun!

One more question …

I rebooted in msdos mode (i have win98se) and typed update so that i can install the J004 firmware.
After i did that the dos screen showed a message “waiting for (something)IRQ …ms”.

I waited for 20 minutes and after that i pressed esc and the whole procedure stopped.

I used discinfo and it shows that i have the J004 version of the firmware.Also the drive still works fine with no problems so far.

Was the procedure i followed for updating the firmware right ?

Probably not but if it worked it worked, just keep your eye out for problems, and see if your rip speed limit is gone.
