This is a DOS based firmware flash utility that will update the HLDS GCR-8483B CD-ROM (Dell Part numbers K3854, F3053, and H8443) to firmware revision 1.09.

Level of Importance:Recommended

Dell recommends applying this update during your next scheduled update cycle. The update contains feature enhancements or changes that will help keep your system software current and compatible with other system modules (firmware, BIOS, drivers and software).

Important Information

The executable will extract files needed to flash the drive in a DOS environment. These files need to be copied to a bootable DOS Floppy diskette or bootable DOS Memory Key. The executable does not create MS-DOS system files. This flash will update the drive's firmware to 1.09. You must remove the bootable Floppy diskette or bootable Memory Key and power cycle the system before using the drive. If the firmware re-flash fails (e.g., system hangs, etc.), power cycle the system and try again.
