I'd like to upgrade my Asus 5224a, have dld l8st update 1.35 from their site. I'm running XPpro, when i launch 1.35 I get the message "The supplied buffer is not valid for requested operation" ?!? so I click ok the prog carries on says "flash complete" then below that "Err:verifyNG!!"
I'm a total newbie to flashing so this has left me perplexed; but at least the writer's still working.
Did you any figure this out. i have had the same problem. Same set up as you. Like you say, at least the drive still works. Maybe I will stop trying, but I would like to get rid of some of the quirks too.
Now that I think about it, did you ever do the recommendation of switching off DMA mode & going to PIO. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do this. Is this drive not capable of DMA, as I cannot see it in the device manager.
By the way, does yours close easily by a fingertip press on the tray ? Mine does not. ALso it makes hell of a noise when its running full speed ?
