I had the same problem when i had my hp8100. The update doesn't work in windows 200 and xp. You have to use windows 9x. I ran the update in windows me and it worked.

Here's the basic solution to installing the hacked firmware on windows XP
Step One: ========= Make a DOS bootdisk. If you don't have one or don't have the necessary files just visit www.bootdisk.com
Step Two: ========= Download both the HP 8100 1.0n hacked firmware and the Sony CRX-100E firmware. You can find them both on www.cdrinfo.com
Step Three: =========== Copy updcrx21.exe from the Sony package and 8100_10n.bin from the HP package to your DOS-bootdisk
Step Four: ========== Reboot and type "updcrx21 8100_10n.bin /at /2 /S" at the command prompt. Remember : if your cdwriter is a primary device change /2 to/1 and if it's master change /S to /M)
