Wrong info in WIN INQUIRY? SH-S203B

[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung SH-S203B / TS-H653B. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I’ve been looking to update the f/w on my SH-S203B drive when I ran into a problem. According to WIN INQUIRY as well as Windows device manager, it reports the following info:
SATA TSSTcorpCDDVDW SSB02

According to the drive label, it states:
SH-S203B/BEBN
F/W=SB02
H/W:A
Ver.B
JANUARY 2008

I can’t run the F/W update because it returns an error: unsupported drive.

Any suggestions?

Hi and Welcome!

my crystal ball suggests me, you have your drive connected to a Sata controller with Jmicron chipset.

We need to know

[ul]
[li]what Sata controller you have connected your drive to
[/li][li]the operation mode that Sata controller is set to in Bios
[/li][li]the drivers you are using for this controller
[/li][/ul]
