History:
I notice there is a latest 3500A FW bases on the newest TDK 1616N called 278.bin (from CDRInfo). Being so happy with the TDK's 2C7 FW (from The Dangerous Bros'), I decide to give it try. However, it only came as bin file without a flasher, so I have to use NECWinFlash.exe to flash it.

Problem:
Now, I want to go back to 2C7. When I try to flash back with Dangerous Bros' 3500Fast.exe in the 3500W2C7.zip, 3500Fast.exe (MDFast.exe too) does not even launch, it just died.

Question:
My speculation is that NECWinFlash.exe somehow locked the FW, so that other flashers can not mod the FW anymore. Is there a way to fix this, so I use The Dangerous Bros' 3500Fast.exe or other TDB flashers again.

You just have to use the 2.C7 binary from our forum and the uniflash software

emperor, your suggestion does offer a quick workaround. It works, thanks.

However, maybe our gurus TDB, Herrie and Liggy should take a look at this problem and come up with a solution.
