Can anyone tell me how to flash my nec2500a with the firmware that Virus2k listed in herries beta8 thread. I tried flash fix but I still cant flash it any sugguestions?

You DO NOT use FlashFix for the ND2500A drive. That tool is used for LiteOn drives. Download the windows version if you aren’t familiar with the DOS version, as both beta 8 and beta 9a are available from other threads. Read this before going any further, as it is there for a purpose.

KTL is correct never use liteon flashfix tool for nec drives.

just download the ds1cx6.exe

then select your drive and click flash.

remember to have nothing running in the background and to remove all media from your drives before hand.

then once flash complete shutdown your system and start it back up.

its that easy.

NOTE WARNING* make shure you select the right drive as if you select the wrong drive and click flash it will damage your drive it will not say wrong drive it will flash regardless. so make shure you have the right drive selected.

you may have a rebagaged 166-s
can you list your optical hardware.

with the DRIVE names

like this, the following is my hardware
listed by there correct drive names.

_NEC DVD_RW ND-2500A
JLMS Xj-HD166S
LITE ON LTR 52327S

and you want to flash your LITEON JLMS Xj-HD166S DVDROM correct ?

if it is a rebagaged version you may need to use FlashFix if you want to flash this firmware over your original firmware. otherwize you will get a version mismatch.

You are VERY confused.
You cannot use that firmware on an NEC2500A.
That firmware is only for a JLMS 166S DVD-ROM drive.

If you want an improved firmware, download Herries beta9 firmware.
Look at the first post HERE
