Re: Is my ASUS BW-12B1ST dead... like... forever?

Some motherboards require the drive to be on 1 of the first four ports try all four and see if it works Da man! :) That was it. Got it back to the original firmware and working again. Thank you!! UPDATE: reading forums elsewhere it looks like this model was moved to the 1959 platform in 2015. Prior...

Re: Is my ASUS BW-12B1ST dead... like... forever?

So I tried running DosFlash32 (multiple times) from a bootable USB with Windows 10 PE x86 and it shows "no ATAPI device present". I set the SATA mode to IDE in the PC BIOS so I don't think it's related to that. Interestingly, when I run DosFlash32 I see that the drive becomes disabled in Device Mana...

Re: Is my ASUS BW-12B1ST dead... like... forever?

Hi Billy. I opened the drive and it's definitely 1959 and says manufactured in early 2014 (see pics). This was a warranty replacement from Asus so maybe they swapped a new control board into an older drive?

Also, my PC is a desktop version with Windows 10 x64.

Re: Is my ASUS BW-12B1ST dead... like... forever?

you dont have mt1959 if you drive is 2014 you have mt1939 it now says 59 but that because you flashed it wrong.
your only chance to fix it is if your pc supports dos flash see the useful for recovery stuff here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=19634

To LiberDrive or not to LibreDrive

I have an Asus BW-16D1HT that unlike the BW-12B1ST it replaced, has LibeDrive firmware available for it. My question is are there any drawbacks to flashing it with LibreDrive firmware? The main reason I got this particular drive was to burn archival ...
