How to update firmware for a Sony Optiarc AD-5280S dvd-rw rom computer burner drive

Found 6th Apr 2015
Hi Guys

Anyone know or use Sony Optiarc dvd-rw drives?

Just bought a desktop (2nd hand) and it had 2 of these

Sony Optiarc AD-5280S

Does anyone know how to update the firmware?

Also what firmware to use to update them?

I guess a driver update!

Its 2-3 years old and with all the cleaning out I did on the baseunit, I think they will need drivers checked.

Lookinng around the sony's seem to have a cult following with the xbox gang, I just want them for burning and fill in the spare slots in my desktop.

Any help (latest) links or advice please

There are modded firmwares available, which fix region control (grin)
NB. The "Z" are for the -CB model, not sure about the G, so the fine folks at MYCE (used to be "CDfreaks") should be able to point you in the right direction
