Re: Sony DW-Q58A DVD Drive Firmware

OK fine ๐Ÿ™‚
Download that "" file and extract it to somewhere.
You will find a Windows 98 Dosfiles and Mtkflash v1.83c Folder inside.
Make sure your using mtkflash v1.83.c
Plug-in your mp3 USB stick and format it using the Format Tool from HP.
Make sure you don't Have any important files on your USB-MP3 Stick because everything will be erased.
- Install the HP USB Disk format tool for Windows using the Setup (sp27213.exe)
- Start the Tool from the created Shortcut on your Desktop (HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool)
- Select your USB-MP3 Stick as device
- Select File System "FAT"
- Let the volume label empty
- Select "Quickformat"
- Select "Create a DOS startup disk"
- Choose "using DOS system files located at" and point it to the "Dosfiles" folder that you extracted
- Click Start and Format
- Click Yes to proceed with format
- Click OK and Close
- Copy all the Files from the "Dosfiles" folder to your USB-MP3 Stick root and overwrite everything!
- Make sure you can see all files because some of them have a system or hidden file attribute.
 Donโ€™t change the attribute from the files just copy them!
 You can see all files by enabling in Tools/Folder Options/View the "show hidden files and folders" option and by
 "unchecking" the "Hide protected operating system files"
Copy the "Mtkflash folder" to your USB-MP3 Sticks root
- Restart your notebook with the USB-MP3 Stick plugged and enabled.
- Get into the Boot menu from Dell (on my notebook I need to press the F12 Key on start)
- Select something with USB Stick or USB Storage Device (I donโ€™t know the name exactly)
Then you get into the good old Windows 98 Command Prompt.
In the command Prompt you type:
"cd mtkflash" to change into the mtkflash directory
then type:
"mtkflash.exe 2 R /B /M uds1.bin" to backup your firmware into a file named uds1.bin
Wait a minute or two until it gets back to command prompt
"dir" and check if the file is really there
reboot your computer and mail me the file to --removed--
After testing the file I will put it online for others too!

sorry for my bad english, i hope you understand my text ๐Ÿ™‚
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! READ THIS TOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you just have one Harddisk and one DVD Drive installed then your DVD Drive is installed as Primary Slave. Make sure you use the right number, but i think "2" is right for you!
