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.

yes and as I said,

I did the search and found where that drive was talked about or that word was in the thread but found no firm ware or links to firmware.  Perhaps you can provide a link if I am missing something?

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
