Trying to update firmware on NEC DVD-Burner rom

I have a NEC DVD/CD Rewriter Model: ND-1100A it was pulled from an HP computer. When I go into device manager it says it’s an HP DVD Writer 300n.

When I try to install the latest version of NEC Model: ND-1100A firmware it doesn’t detect the drive. I went into the bios of my motherboard and it’s being detected there and in Windows XP x64. Any suggestions?
Also, the HP DVD Writer 300n firmware won’t install on a Windows xp x64 desktop any suggestions?

You need to grab a copy of Binflash. It should be able to flash the latest firmware for the ND-1100A or latest HP 300n, be it a .bin or .exe file.
