Where to get the "Original" firmware for Sony DRU-700A

High all

when I bought Sony DRU-700A he was able to read almost EVERYTHING and I was very proud of him.
Not sure, but I think that the “original” firmware was VY03.

When I downloaded VY08 from Sony’s site, there was no fear for me to flash it with no backup.

Some time later I found that my drive does not understand some CDs (not DVDs) that was burnt before (and maby by other drives). Also he works extremely BAD with CD-RWs.

So since reflashing I completely can not access some older-written CDs (the CDs are readable by other drives) and can not rewrite CD-RWs !

WTF ? (sorry for my english)

I tried to find that “original” firmware in inet but there was only:
VY02
VY05
VY06
VY08
and some of “patched” ones…

I tried they out but there was no result…

I’m asking myself, where 01,03,04,07 firmwares gone ?

Also I found out that with firmwares later than VY05 the drive can not read some DVDs !

The question is: “WHERE TO GET THE <ORIGINAL> FIRMWARE ?”

PEOPLE ! HELP ME PLEASE !

Welcome to cdfreaks :slight_smile:

You can get VY02 from here (but I wouldn’t recommend it):

You could also try crossflashing it to the latest 832S firmware VS0J:

You can even change the name of the firmware to Sony 700A, by using OmniPatcher. :wink: But note it will void your warranty…

Thanx, i know all of it.

I tried VY02 it was resultless

where can i get VY03 ?
