Description

This is a DOS based firmware flash utility that will update the HLDS GDR-8082N DVD-ROM (Dell Part number M1687) to firmware revision 0120.

Level of Importance:Optional

Dell recommends the customer review specifics about the update to determine if it applies to your system. The update contains changes that impact only certain configurations, or provides new features that may/may not apply to your environment.

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 0120. 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.
