That link to drivers guide apears to be a SONY burning program.  It doesn't apear to be a firmware flash.

Im having issues getting CDRWIN to burn with this drive.  The tech support suggest finding a firmware update to see if ti would resovel the problems as we know the burner is works fine.

I am still searching for a firmware update.

Did u try a 'download search' ? That's how I found the file(s) QB1 and QB2. Was planning on downloading it and ftp-ing it to a homepage, but the site gave me a internal server error on downloading. Googled around and found a modded firmware that'll give you 52x/32x/52x on your drive. Since the original site is gone/down (once again), you'll need to go through the google cache:

http://www.google.nl/search?q=cache:hlgJknrXWFAJ:www.sonycrx2xx.org/phpbb2/viewtopic.php%3Fp%3D1555+CRX225E+firmware+download&hl=nl 

I downloaded the file just in case it doesn't work, just ask and I'll give you a direct ftp link. One note though: this is a MODIFIED firmware: use @ your own risk...

Good luck,

Blue Rishi
