Question about CD & DVD Burners
I have a project at work where I have been tasked to set the subject cd writer from master to slave. The only way this can be done is with a firmware upgrade via Win98. (I have the file and upload tool) The only problem is that I do not have a Win98 machine. This is what I have been told should work:
Set up a lead and power cable to a spare CD-RW adapter PCB on the spare Secondary IDE port.
Unzip the files to a folder on the P.C (call it Samsung CD-RW). Create a shortcut to the program SFDNWIN.
Shut down the P.C.
1.Connect a CD-RW and power up the P.C and on the bus scan it will show up as Master.
2.Open the SFDNWIN program and it should find the connected device.
3.Click on the Download File Open button.
4.Select SH01.bin file in the Samsung CD-RW folder.
5.Click on the Start Download button.
6.When done the P.C will prompt to restart Windows.
7.On boot up you will see the CD-RW on the bus scan will change to Slave. 8.Shutdown the P.C and remove the CD-RW.
Is there a way this can be done with another operating system (XP) so I don't have to build a Win98 pc to accomplish this task?
If you are to be using two DVD drives and want one as a slave, hook up both together as you would a hard drive with the ribbon cable. Restart the computer in CMOS by hitting F4 (may be different on your system) If you navigate a little with the arrow keys and the enter button, you will see boot options. Often the DVD player is first or second after Floppy and the hard drive last. Now you should see two DVD drives (if thats what you have), just select it to be a slave. This also works if you have only one DVD drive and want it to be a slave. Just select your DVD device to be the second boot option. Windows XP detects hard ware on its own and should not need any firmware unless the burner is made for Windows 95. If this does not answer your question, let me know.
