Hi,

I am a new user of ND-3500A. I updated the firmware of it to 2.17 incidently. Is there any method to go back to the original one?

I knew that maybe the new firmware is better, but as a amateur user, I just wonder if I can reconver the old one. So, can anybody help me?

Thanks very much!

You can overwrite firmware with an earlier version. Download the 2.16 firmware and reflash your drive with it.

Thanks! is it the 2.16 the original version? I did not notice that number at the very beginning.

and...a stupid question, why there is a "_" in front of "NEC" when I check the hardware in my computer? like "_NEC DVD......".

Thank you again

If you have the DOS flasher you can go from every firmware to another. Why not to keep the 2.17?

That's just the way NEC decided to identify their drives. There's no good reason why they did that.

You can go back and front to any firmware you desire, just read the sticky topics!

See this thread: http://www.cdrinfo.com/forum/tm.asp?m=88295

NEC has now officially released firmware v2.17. There is still a "_" in front of "NEC" after flashing using the official firmware.

Our release was also official, as it seems it takes sometime to transfer firmware from Japan to USA
