matarvai -> Plextor 16x won't update firmware (9/4/2002 1:45:41 PM)

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

Or you could go to :-

And download the ASPI FIX !!![:)]

I have installed Aspi version 4.71. Aspi check says everything is working fine and ripping softwares says the same too. Only when i boot with the bootdisk to dos i get message that says Aspi layer not installed and i can't update 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 !!!

Ok I installed the 4.60 aspi and still it won't update the firmware. Same error messages.

Well it may help if you told me what version of windows and which Boot disk you are using !!![:)]




matarvai -> RE: Plextor 16x won't update firmware (9/5/2002 7:53:55 PM)

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.




Laffin Assassin -> RE: Plextor 16x won't update firmware (9/5/2002 9:12:17 PM)

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 !!!




matarvai -> RE: Plextor 16x won't update firmware (9/6/2002 11:14:10 PM)

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.




matarvai -> RE: Plextor 16x won't update firmware (9/7/2002 11:44:00 AM)

I rebooted my computer few times and the Windows version of firmware updater worked. I don't know what I did but it worked. Great




Laffin Assassin -> RE: Plextor 16x won't update firmware (9/7/2002 12:18:48 PM)

Oh Well at least you got it done in the End !!![:)]
