I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: firmware upgrade

You shouldn't realy need firmware upgrades for optical drives, all you need is the O/Systems generic drivers.what sort of problems are you having..p.s. if you use the wrong upgade you will render the drive useless..

Hello, I want to replace my SATA HardDrive for a New SSD Disc. The problem is that the Bios does not recognize the SSD when I connect it, My Bios level is [ICKT23AUS] from 2013... Curiosly the Recover CD's Did the work on recovering the system to the new SSD, but won't boot, since Bios doesn't recognize it as a Sata Drive even changing from IDE to AHCI...  I don't find a new Firmware for this Idea Centre B550 Desktop... Any Idea?

Answer:Idea Centre B550 SSD Upgrade / Firmware Upgrade

It's possible the CMOS isn't being updated with the hardware change.  With the SSD drive installed try clearing the CMOS.  The clearing process will erase the stored hardware configuration in the CMOS and then do a fresh inventory on the next reboot. 
 
To clear the CMOS just unplug the power cord and press the power button for 60 seconds or longer.

Question: firmware upgrade?

i have an LG 4163B burner if i do a firmware upgrade will this reset the the number of times i can change the region code on the burner to factory spec 5 i think ? if not how do i reset?any help appreciated
 

Answer:firmware upgrade?

I found this don't know if it will work:

RPC2 firmware where the number of "User Changes" and "Region Setting" snap back to the pre-flashing settings every time you cycle the power on the drive.

This effectively gives you an infinite number of region changes, without all the software BS required by an RPC1 firmware. For more info try Google, or a search on rpc1.org

Region free firmware: http://tdb.rpc1.org/#GSA4163B

Question: Firmware Upgrade

I have a DVD burner which is at least a few years old. I am trying to use 16x disks to burn DVD movies I downloaded and am having alot of trouble. I know i probably need to upgrade the firmware on the burner so it can handle the 16x blank disks. Can I forget about upgrading the firmware and just pick 8x as the burn speed and use the 16x disks or do i really need to upgrade the firmware? I was able to burn a data disc with the 16x discs with no problem, just not DVD video. Thanks.
 

Answer:Firmware Upgrade

Firmware does not affect DVD writing speed (unless there's something seriously wrong). If it succeeded in writing a data disk, it should be able to do the same with a video.

Sometimes a disk burning session fails without a special reason, try another disk. Of course, you can set your program to burn the disks at a lower speed. 16x is only the top speed at which the disks can be burnt not the only speed.

Answer:DVD Firmware upgrade.

The firmware is contained in the DVD drive's electronics and you shouldn't have any problem, providing the firmware update was completed correctly.If you have any doubts and it's working OK, you could always do the upgrade again.

I am attempting to upgrade my X1 (1293) SSD firmware (here) but  I do not have an external CD/DVD drive to burn the ISO image.   Using 7-zip, I extracted the [BOOT] directory & contents to a fat32-formatted flash drive, but the X1 fails to boot with the message "Remove disks or other media.  Press any key to restart."  I've also tried mounting the ISO on my computer & my Mac, but they both show the mounted ISO as being empty. Any ideas?

Answer:X1 SSD Firmware Upgrade w/o CDROM?

Nevermind.  I installed the "Intel Solid State Drive Toolbox' (link) and it let me update the firmware directly from Intel with a single click. If anyone from Lenovo's reading this, you might work out something with Intel on this one.  It's way easier than rummaging through a pile of junk to find an external CDRW/DVDRW drive.

Hi all, i searched the forum but i didn't find anything similar, so here is my problem.
i bought a DVD+R DL RiDisc (CMC Manufacturer) and although NERO sees it as a DL, it can't write it, showing me this error
"Focus or tracking error

...Could not perform start of Disc-at-once".

i called the shop where i bought the disc and told me that the drive needs firmware upgrade...

So the question, how can i upgrade it and where can i find the firmware??

i know the manual don't say anything about CMC manufacturer, but only for MCC, TY etc, but perhaps some day i'll need this kind of discs.
the drive is Mat****a DVD-RAM UJ-841S according to windows, but according to manual is UJ-841B. are they really different?

Alright, I have a Samsung SDR-430 DVD-ROM drive that I don't think works very well, and so I thought a firmware update might help it out.

So I downloaded the latest firmware for it, which consists of auto.bat, fromdos.exe, and aas109.obj files.

Using Win2K SP3, I tried running auto.bat from the command prompt. Get the error message NTVDM.exe has generated errors.

Tried it from a safe mode command prompt and get the same error.

I made a shortcut to the auto.bat and set it to Win95 compatibility mode, "Run in separate memory space" is checked, but greyed out. Ran that shortcut, got the same error.

So, I'm stumped. I know that NTVDM cannot directly access hardware, so how do I upgrade the firmware?? There's a memory settings tab on the properties for fromdos.exe, would anything in there help?

Thanks very much for your assistance!

Answer:BIOS Cannot See CD-RW/DVD-ROM After Firmware Upgrade

If a BIOS flash goes bad (and unfortunately a significant % do) then it is often the end for the drive, (or motherboard when the PC BIOS is being flashed).

The golden rule is never to flash a BIOS unless you are correcting a known hardware compatability issue. It isn't a recreational activity.

The problem is that if the failed flash prevents the drive from appearing on the IDE BUS, then it cannot be accessed to reflash it back to the original version.

I don't even know if this is the appropriate place to post this but here goes. I got my wife a Canon G3 digital camera the other day and shortly after got an e-mail saying there were "firmware" upgrades available. Hell, I wouldn't know a "firmware" if it walked up and spit in my eye! Are these kinds of upgrades essential or are they by in large minor patches that the camera does not really need?
 

Answer:Firmware upgrade for Canon G3

If you arenít having problems downloading to your computer and donít intend buying a Canon external flash unit it doesnít seem to do much. I wouldnít mess with it as the Canon site points out that you can disable the camera if you screw up the update.

I have a different camera and havenít updated the firmware on it because it doesnít fix anything I have problems with. I generally donít upgrade firmware unless it does something useful.

I recently updated the firmware of my DVD/RW combo drive from the Dell website. Since then, I have had problems burning blank DVD media.

When I insert a blank DVD-R in windows the drive turns into "CD Drive".

Image burning software behaves in different ways, some see the D drive as "not accessible"; one will read the media as a DVD-R with "4488.06 MB free" but confusingly call it a CDROM project with 700 MB free; a final will go through the entire burning process of data, claim it was successful but upon opening/re-closing of the drive or examination of under the disc it is apparent no successful burning occurred at all and the disc is indeed -- still blank.

The drive can read and play DVD movies, previously-burned DVD data, music CDs etc.

Any ideas?

EDIT: This is a software not a hardware problem. DVDs burn fine in linux and can be read on both operating systems. Hmm.
 

Answer:dvd burning and firmware upgrade

What burning software are you using?
Sounds like you have a CD project selected in the software options
rather than a DVD project.

Answer:How do I upgrade my router's firmware

Hi hellbandit, Have a look here SBG6580 - How to get firmware upgrade? - Comcast Help and Support Forums
here is a quote from a poster

"That is not a modem, it's a gateway device and this is one of the big reasons many of us here recommend NOT to get combo gateways like this, it makes firmware upgrades impossible since they are controlled by Comcast and there is no offcial way request an update."

Answer:iPod touch firmware upgrade

You don't lose anything when you upgrade,my ipod touch 2nd gen has been and I lost nothing.But before you upgrade, you might want to do a bit of research and ask yourself whether the upgrade is worth it.The upgrade doesn't really add much to the ipod touch.If I had looked into it more, I wouldn't have bothered.

I have not upgraded my wireless router's firmware for over 2 years. I am attempting to download the file from Cisco's site. It keeps wanting to save to NOTEPAD automatically. I sent it from there to the desktop as a zip file. Will that do for the router upgrade or do I need to bypass NOTEPAD somehow??
 

Answer:Linksys Router Firmware Upgrade

Which model do you have?
Every firmware file I have seen from Linksys was a .bin - if you have a zip file, you need to unzip it.
Then you need to get a wired, not wireless connection to your router before you apply the update.
Next browse to your router's web interface (usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 by default) the address depends on how the router was set up.
Then you have to find the page to update firmware, browse to the file you unzipped and install it.
If you need more specific info, please post model and version plus your computer's ip address.

I am replacing my dvd/cd burner on my HP Pavilion DV4305 laptop. I purchase a new one, NEC ND6500A (firmware 2.4.0). It seems to run ok, but when I try to burn a movie, it doesn't work with the media I have, (Yuden, TDK). I emailed the company, and they suggested I upgrade the firmware. Trouble is I can't find an upgrade for the firmware that I have, 2.4.0. Any ideas on what I can try now?
 

Answer:firmware upgrade for optical drive

You said that you “emailed the company”; which company did you email? If it was NEC, then they should be able to identify your drive and provide you with the firmware for that drive. If you didn’t contact NEC, then you need to contact them for the firmware.

If you bought the drive directly from HP, you may need to contact HP for the firmware update instead of NEC. It might be an OEM drive.

Also, you may have a defective drive. My experience with laptop drives shows that the drives will often play DVD’s and even burn CDs, but when you try to burn a DVD they will fail. Hence, the drive is defective. It is strange that it will still burn CD’s and not DVDs, but replacing the drives has always fixed the issues.

Thanks!

Hello,

I'm running CentOS 7 on E7470, and a few of the devices aren't working, like smart card reader, fingerprint reader, etc. According to some sources, deploying the latest ControlVault firmware/drivers package may fix some of those.
The native installer is built for Windows, and I was wondering if it'd be possible to do the upgrade by either booting a Windows portable/live version and running the upgrade, or, copying the installer to a USB and doing an upgrade in the way it's done with BIOS upgrades on Linux?
Perhaps LVFS? (Although compiling that on CentOS 7 is not really straight forward)
Regards,Milos.

Answer:E7470 firmware upgrade on Linux

Here's another (risky?) idea: There's a Windows 10 VM running on top of libvirt/KVM, and I can do USB passthru of Broadcom 5880. Driver isn't applied by default, so I'm tempted to try how wrong might things go if I were to install ControlVault2 firmware and drivers for these devices as they're passed thru to the VM.
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Hi all.I recently recommended the purchase of a Linksys WRT54GS router to a friend. I have one and it works well.Unfortunately his router configuration screens appear to be in German! Although he is up and running through my screen-for-screen translation, he is about to attempt a firmware upgrade to fix the problem.I have never attempted a firmware upgrade so I have two issues I hope you can help with please:Does the router remember your network configuration settings after the upgrade or is it a case of restoring a saved config file? Or worse do you have to reconfigure from scratch?Secondly, I read that it's a good idea to download a copy of the current running firmware before upgrading, just in case anything goes wrong. Unfortunately, it appears that only the latest firmware versions are available on the official Linksys site so does anyone know of a site where previous firmware versions might be available please?Thanks,Tom.

Answer:Firmware upgrade - Linksys WRT54GS

1) Not normally; as I understand it, the firmware flash will in most cases overwrite the memory. I would expect that the settings are on the same ROM chip.2) Restoring a saved config file may or may not work, depending on whether it requires the same firmware version or whether the new version is substantially different. Unknown territory.3) A very good idea, I would say. Covers your back in case any of the above issues crop up, or that the new revision is not 100% solid. The trouble is that most router manufacturers do not offer anything beyond the latest version. I cover that by downloading a copy of the original for any new router at the time of installation, but that's academic here of course.I think you should just save the config file anyway, but write down your settings and option choices in case they are wiped and you need to re-enter them. I would expect the new firmware rev to be okay.

Needless to say, the player itself is now wiped, enters recovery mode on reboot and claims a 'firmware problem'.Details as follows:I attempted the upgrade via a link from within Windows Media Player's help. The firmware software ZenTouchP4S_PCFW_LB_2_11_01.exe is saved in my PC'c 'Received Files' folder and appears to run properly in that it runs a wizard which stalls and displays a dialogue claiming 'Your player is not connected, please connect your player'. Except, I can see the player is connected via usb, which worked perfectly well before I started. Also the player is recognised within my pc's 'my computer' and also through 'hardware manager' (which says the device is working properly!

I have purchased a set of 25 Imation 16x DVD-R and am trying to burn onto them using Nero, however, I am experiencing burn errors and am not able to burn. (I tried burning with DVD Decrypter, Alcohol 120 etc...same reuslt)

I read on the Imation Label that "Lower speed drives might need firmware upgrade to write this media." I tried the Fujitsu-Siemens website, searched for DVD-RW driver under Amilo Pro V2020, but found nothing except a document that says "It is not necessary to upgrade the firmware of your DVD Drive in Windows XP"

I tried searching the NEC website (the drive is a NEC ND-6500A) however, they only provide firmware upgrades to retail (non OEM) drives.
