I have a older dell inspiron 3000 running windows XP.WITHOUT A FLOPPY DRIVE
Dell offers a firmware update for my toshiba DVD ROM sd-c2502 that fixes an issue where the toshiba drive can not read some cds (Mainly blank CDs). The update is offered in FLOPPY FORMAT ONLY!!! And has to be installed using DOS outside of windows (So no use of command lines in windows)
I have used the program “Virtual floppy” to extract the files and put them on a separate partition on the harddrive. I used a windows ME boot cd to boot into DOS but when I try to update the firmware I either get errors or it does nothing.
How can I update the firmware for this DVD ROM? Is there a winflash utility I can use?
PS the partition is in NTFS and the win ME boot cd can read a NTFS partition just cant write to it
