I have tried to update my cd-rw drive firmware. I have tried the self-extracting file and Pxupdate32.exe from windows. It always fail to update. Unspecified error. And when i try to update from dos it says i don't have ASPI installed.

How can i update my cd-rw drive firmware.
My current firmware is 1.01 and the firmware what i am trying to update is 1.05.

Try using FORCEASPI to install a working ASPI layer before trying to update your firmware

I don't know what version of Windows you are using but ASPI 4.71 is causing problems for loads of people with Windows XP and 2000 but that is why I suggested you use the ASPI FIX as it installs 4.60 and that is still the most Stable version of ASPI !!!

I am using Windows Xp Corporate edition. I have downloaded three bootdisk from www.bootdisk.com, WinMe,Win95B and Dr.Dos for bios flashing. Can't update firmware.

I have my cd-rw drive as secondary slave.

Well all I can suggest is that you get hold of the Original Boot Disks for Windows ME OR Windows 98 and boot with CD Support and see if that makes any difference ! Or try the Windows Version of the Firmware but make sure you dissable DMA before you try to flash it and then turn it back on after you have re-booted your computer !!!

I tried the original Windows 98SE bootdisk, didn't help >Aspi manager not found. I also tried the windows version didn't work either. Before i did that I disabled DMA and restart my computer.
