Question about Acard Technology ARS-2033S DVD-R Burner

1 Answer

On boot the message "copier f/w fail please update fw" appears.

I don't know how update the firmware. There doesn't appear to be any Serial, Parallel or Network ports to connect to! I have downloaded a "bin" file for the ARS-2033S (v1.75) and burned it onto a CD, but I can't work out how to transfer the file to the controller.

    The reason that I need to update the fireware is because it has failed. The hardware concerned is not a DVD drive, but the Acard ARS-2033S copy controller.

I have flashed just 1 DVD drive, years ago. It was easy when you knew the trick. The download site should have told you how. You must get the firmware to read and remember the update flash.

That said, I stopped flashing firmware long ago. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I was given this info and I pass it on. Lots of folks update, upgrade and flash their way to real trouble.

I have just changed my ink cartages &the printer says I have a printhead problem


The error can be the result of firmware code, printer contacts or the printhead itself failing. There is a firmware update for your model that addresses this problem. Please follow the steps below on how to successfully update your printer.
  1. Open the printer cover to remove the printhead. The carrier will come to the center automatically. Once you've taken out the printhead, close the printhead latch and close the printer cover.
  2. Proceed with the firmware update. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark S600 Series Firmware Update.
  3. Once the update is complete, re-insert your printhead. Close the printhead latch and check for errors.
  4. If no error appears, open the printer cover again to re-insert the cartridges.
  5. If that doesn't help, I would highly recommend that you contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance

FW FOUND show on display what does that mean


FW Found means "FirmWare Found".
An update to the blu-ray player was located and they want you to download to update your player's firmware.
After it updates, power OFF your player, wait a couple of minutes and power ON. This is like re-booting.

I keep getting the message 2010


After a BIOS upgrade or installation of a new hard drive, the following error message may appear at POST: ERROR
2010: Warning: Your internal hard disk drive (HDD) may not function correctly on this system. Ensure that your HDD is supported on this system and that the latest HDD firmware is installed. Press <Esc> to continue

Press <F1> to Setup
The system appears to boot normally after escape is pressed and the operating system will load.
Solution There are three possible workarounds to eliminate the error:
  1. Update the hard drive firmware to the latest level. Download the hard drive firmware update, and then apply to your hard drive.
    Note: This update requires a floppy disk drive.
  2. Replace the hard drive with one supported by the system being used.
  3. Use the hard drive, producing the 2010, error in the Ultrabay of the system or a docking station with the second hard drive adapter instead. The interface to the Ultrabay is parallel ATA. For more information visit, ThinkPad Second Hard Drive Adapter for Ultrabay Slim - Overview
Additional information This error is purposely generated to alert the user to potential problems with diagnostic or copy tools. There are known issues with several of these listed below.
  1. Disk Fitness Test (DFT) version 3.xx provided by Hitachi GST which uses vendor specific commands on the hard drive. These may not be correctly interpreted since they must pass through the serial to parallel ATA bridge. However, version 4.00 or later of the Disk Fitness Test (DFT) will work.
  2. HDDTEST version 0.28 by Hitachi GST does not function properly for similar reasons. Instead, use HDDTEST version 0.29 or later.
  3. DOS-based copy tools may function slowly or produce incorrect output, specifically previous versions of Norton/Symantec Ghost. These versions are not compatible with the Serial-ATA interface of the Intel ICH6M chip set. Documentation on this problem may be found at www.symantec.com. It is recommended to use either a newer version of Ghost, Norton Ghost 2003 (version 2003.789 or later) or Symantec Ghost 8.0 or later, or to use the -FNI switch when invoking Ghost from the command prompt (For example, Ghost.exe -FNI with the current version of Ghost).
Other disk copy tools and related applications, such as some backup programs, may also have similar behavior. The hard drives shipped in the affected systems will not display the message because they already have firmware that recognizes this new Serial ATA bridge chip. However, a similar drive from an earlier ThinkPad system or an OEM drive might cause the error message to be displayed. Customers may also notice the POST error message after applying a ThinkPad BIOS update if a drive without the firmware update is installed in the system. Some early systems were shipped with a system BIOS version that did not provide this POST error message. Updated BIOS has been released to provide this informative POST error message to users.

My Book firewire not bootable on mac


I picked up a couple of My Books lately( via Ebay), and noticed that i can not get them to work on the Firewire interface with my Dual Core Intel Mac. Shows up on USB2.0 fine however.I found an online reference that said Apple changed some things on the Firewire interface year or two ago, and that vendors had to update their firmware (it related to Firewire devices reporting a unique ID to the Mac).
