Sandisk cruzer firmware


Click on the "Start" button and then type "Update" into the search box. Click on "Windows Update" in the box that appears. Click on "Check for updates" and wait for the updater to scan your system. Click on the firmware update, if there is one. If your scan disk firmware is up-to-date on the right firmware, there will not be an update. Click "Install Updates" if you have an update available to you and then click "Finish" when it is complete. Restart your computer.

Bdp s360 will play old dvd. bluray disk unkown disk-will not play


If this happens with all BR disks then either the firmware has been corrupted and you will need to update it or the blue laser diode for the BR disks has failed and the entire optical mechanism will have to be replaced by a dealer's repair shop.
You can find the firmware file and the instructions on how to install it here

My Iomega CDRW64001 keeps ejecting my blank CDs. The external LED blinks for several minutes and then ejects the CD with or without a burn program open. It plays recorded CDs and I'm able to install...


Your best solution (since your USB devices and your network-adapter are not working) is to remove the disk-drive from the old computer, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in the new computer, and then copy all your files from "old" to "new".

Or, try a different brand of "blank" CD-R disks -- the "firmware" (software inside the CD-writer) may not be recognizing "newly-manufactured" media). Unless you can update the firmware (by downloading the latest firmware on another computer, and burning a CD-R disk, and then taking that disk to your computer), it's easiest to "move" the disk-drive to the new computer.

Some blue ray disks play and some don't. It seems like the newer one are the problems. Is there a firmware update and if so how do I obtain it and run it.


Most major brands have a simple method of updating Firmware. You download the FW file, burn it to a disk. Put the disk in the player. The player will recognize the update and handle the update. It may take some time as some files are large.

Warning: Updating with the wrong version of Firmware, or if the process is interrupted, it can render you player useless.

Find the version your player is currently using. Then go to Sony Support to see if there is a newer version available. Hope this helps.

Firmware update for Element Blu-ray player


Sorry to bring up an old thread but I couldn't solve the problem with these solutions. I tried a DVD, I tried 3 CD's burned from 2 different computers, I waited for 5 minutes, I waited for 5 hours. Nothing worked. So I used my work computer that is running XP and it worked perfectly. So if you are burning the disk from a vista computer I don't think it will work.

Trying to upgrade H/D on IBM T43 laptop, get 2010 error on


Error code 2010 is definitely hard drive problem.

Did you get the firmware from the site below?
Link to hardware maintenance manual for reference:
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/39t2393.pdf
Here's the fix straight from the maintenance manual:
If in the primary bay the customer is using a non-IBM or non-Lenovo hard disk drive (HDD), or an old generation IBM HDD which is not supported by this system, with the risk in mind, the customer can still use it by pressing ESC. If in the primary drive bay the customer is using a supported IBM/Lenovo HDD with an old firmware, the customer needs to update its firmware to the latest. The latest version is available at http://www.lenovo.com/think/ support

You may need to go to Samsung's web site and get a firmware update for your player. Blu-Ray's compatibility is not guaranteed for all disks and Samsung updates the firmware for the various players for disc compatibility on a regular basis.
I just looked on their site and I saw they have a version 2.0 update for the US and Canada. Click on the link above and it should download. You may also need to get the firmware update document for instructions. That may solve the problem.

SAMSUNG DVD R120 error EC:0207


I had exactly the same problem -- error message of "This disc can be neither played nor recorded. Please check the disk [EC:0207]" after the machine had been working fine for a year. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Samsung website, burned it to a CD-R disk (took three tries until the DVD Recorder recognized the disk -- worked when I used Rocio CD Creater software), then loaded the firmware updates to the DVD Recorder. On the Samsung website you can retrive the firmware update instructions as well. I had to perform the firmware upgrade several times until it successfully updated both the system firmware as well as the disk firmware. After successfully updating both, the Recorder now recognizes the DVD-R disks and I was able to resume recording. I have however, noted some choppiness with the playback of the newly recorded disks. Other than that, the firmware upgrade successfully resolved the problem.

Firmware update problem (SH-W162C)


You need to insert the Windows CD install disk in the DVD drive and reboot the computer. Let the Windows CD boot up and allow it to go through the motion till you reach the end . It will ask what you intend doing? your answer is to press R for "Console" do this and you will see the Command line just like the old DOS CMD line. Type chkdsk let the computer repair itself take the disk out and hey presto! Your alive again.
