I have a NEC 3540A drive.
Lately I found out that it doesn’t read certain media DVDs.
I then went and flashed it using NEC’s official firmware.
I had firmware v1.01 or v1.02, I can’t exactly remember anymore…
The problem is that I mistakenly flashed a wrong 3550A firmware (v1.06).
When I discovered the mistake, I tried to BinFlash 3540A’s v1.04, but BinFlash shouts “Firmware is for a different drive”.
Next, I dumped my current firmware (3550A v1.06) and stupidly enough patched some strings in it to change it to 3540A v1.02…
Halfway through the re-flash of this patched firmware I received a “Error submitting checksum” message…
I KNOW that my drive is 3540A.
What I need is some BinFlash version that would let me do a raw flash of the 3540A 1.04 firmware - no questions asked (and no verifications made).
That’s the best choise I seem to have.
