Can anyone help, I need to download the latest firmware drivers for my Hitachi GD-8000 CD/DVD Rom drive. I have tried Hitachi’s web site without success. Thanks

Hi Sicknote I have downloaded the 0010 file as you suggested and searched the computer look for the latest drivers. It has not updated my drivers I am still using the same drivers dated 2001 Driver no. 5.1.2535.0 any ideas.

Have you flashed the drive with the new firmware?

Hi Rayuk. The answer to your question is no, can you explain how I flash the drive with the firmware?

If you unzip the downloaded file you will find there is a text file giving instructions how to do this.

When I unzip the File there is not a text file just a file named 80UPH100 which loads to a folder called unzipped on my c drive when selected it opens a black dos screen for a second then disappears.

Is it the patched file from click here
that you downloaded,if so it should have the txt file.

Perhaps you downloaded a different one have you got a link for it?

Flashed the drive, still no joy thanks for your help anyway Rayuk, I think I will throw the dvd away or buy a new dvd rewriter instead, any suggestions of a good dvd rewriter to purchase that will play these games.

You can get the new NEC2500a 8x for £50 +p&p from
click here

plus some have had success in flashing the drive to be able to write to dual layer disks[for a later date when the media becomes cheaper]

Is it worth waiting for the Nec 2510 duel layer burner to arrive next month and will these drives be the stardard in the future.
