Hi

I want to update my DVD (Hitachi GD 5000) and the firmware program to do so is a *.exe (I don't remember the name). I think I must run that program on DOS session. Is it right? If yes, how to do that om WIN XP (pro)?
How to upgrade the firmware?

Thanks in advance for your help/tips

Regards

cmgam:)

Thanks a lot

yeah, any info you're going to find on your optical drives will be on the drive, itself. you'll most likely have to slide them out and look at the label on top.

Why don't you do a search with Google.
I just did a search for 6HU.exe (that's my firmware version) and it brought me to the Acer homepage. :)
