I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Sudden slowness for my main HDD (Samsung Spinpoint F4EG HD204UI)

I would check the wiring. SATA cables don't like tight angles, make sure it's not doing more than 90? angles.
Other than that, you can try downloading the checking utility form the manufacturer's site and run it.

Also, you list it as RAID, is it a single drive of a raid or both?

Computer shuts down in the middle of formatting a hard drive.
Accidentally clicked on the power supply was shut down when the drive during formatting.

I removed the drive and reinstall in computer.
Attempt a full format using WINDOWS is not possible, gives an error in the middle.

I turned on the test tool's ESTOOL SAMSUNG test result is good - not have errors.

Could it be that the hard drive was destroyed due to the computer shuts down?
Is it possible to rely on reliable software to identify ESTOOL hard drive problem at the truth?
This fully formatted correctly takes 9 hours + / - (2TB drive)?

Please Help.
Thank you

Like the title says I am looking for a firmware upgrade for my Samsung InfoRanger SCM-110R.

Recently my ISP upgraded their signals and the InfoRanger doesn't work any longer. The firmware on the device is well over nine years old, and I'd like to try and upgrade it.

I realize this modem is a dinosaur but I can't afford a new one right now so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can't seem to find an answer to my question - Does the firmware update mean I have to reinstall windows? I have done firmware updates on other devices in the past, but not on a "boot" device, so just need an answer.

Edit: According to samsung it does not wipe HD, but just wanted people who have done an "inplace upgrade" to answer.

Edit: It worked fine through magician.

Samsung has recently posted firmware update EXM03B6Q for the 850 Pro on the download site.
I was unable to update via Magician so downloaded the ISO and ran it from a USB drive.
I was one of the lucky ones who didn't update to EXM02B6Q in Feb of 2015 which was a total disaster.
The update worked without any problems and speeds have not changed at all.
There is also a PDF installation guide for those who like to read first.
Don't forget to image the SSD first just in case. I did not, however loose data but better safe than sorry.

How do I install the latest Samsung SSD firmware update (DXM04B0Q)? The Magician software is supposed to do it, but when I open up the download folder where the firmware update download is located, the Magician software doesn't see it. I've downloaded the firmware in many different locations, but still, the Magician software doesn't see it. Any Ideas? See snips to see firmare update download location and what Magician software sees. The firmware update (DXM04B0Q) is right below the Symantic folder.

Magician download and firmware update download: Support - Solid State Drives MZ-7PD512 | Samsung Memory & Storage

A:How do I install the latest Samsung SSD firmware?

Couple of things you can try.
- Move the DXM04B0Q folder to your desktop. Does the Samsung Magician see it?
- If still no joy, try letting the Magician download the firmware. Verify it downloaded the correct version.

my dvd player (samsung ts-h352a) has been having issues lately meaning that it very rarely reads any cd inside. It's light will slowly pulse but it does not sound like it spins up and then reports that there is no cd in the drive. all cd's are original manufacturer copies. I went to the samsung site to upgrade the firmware and it has offered me a *.bin file that has no windows assosciation. when i look for drivers through device manager it looks for only *.inf files. what am i doing wrong, any suggestions to alternate fixes perhaps?

Hi everyone,

New to this, first post so please go slowly.

I have a Samsung blue ray player BD-UP5000, and I have down loaded the new zip file of the firmware upgrade version 1.6 to my computer. I then burnt a dvd-rw. When I inserted the disc into my Blue ray player it reads ERROR #0x000000ff and then ejects the disc. What am I doing wrong?


A:Samsung BD-UP5000 firmware up grade

It probably can't read re-writable media so try using DVD-R or DVD+R

You can also update it directly via the internet by connecting it to your router and updating in real-time from the Samsung website. The BD-UP5000 has an ethernet port on it for this purpose.

friends I'm installing a fresh samsung 840 120gb. i thought i could put the ssd on sata 1 [not zero] and get firmware via magician on my windows 8 lab mule. no dice. apparently magician ONLY wants to see the ssd on sata zero. it can pull up the drive, but none of the controls work.
soooo... I'm thinking I'm going to have to go with the drive 'as is' to install 7 on a notebook, then as first order of business go pickup the firmware update and execute it.

will this result in sub-par arrangement? best I can tell the fw update is non-destructive.
is there another way?

AFTER the os is installed?

So I installed my new SSD, set up all my programs and files, and was having some trouble with discovering an ACHI drivers (which apparently cannot be achieved on my dell latitude model IDE ATA/ATAPI driver missing?)

Anyway after installing the Samsung Magician software to help optimize the SSD, it said that a firmware update was available, so upon updating I was rewarded with a BSOD after restarting. I became angry and did a system restore with my image disk and started over. This time in the samsung magician it said the firmware was already up to date so I didn;t think anything of it until today another BSOD. If I have to do another reinstall I will take my own life, so I hope someone can help me here.

Do you use the DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half-mini card?
If so then it looks like the driver for it is the problem.

Do you have a spare HDD that you can use because I think the driver for it is incompatible with SSDs. I will need to double check.

I want to upgrade the firmware of my new Samsung DVD writer (from Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology) to the latest version.
DVD writer Model:
For some reason it will not burn DVD ?RW disks.

So I downloaded the latest appropriate firmware file from
Namely SH-S223C_SB04.exe which I ran under win7 (64) bit OS

This executable program in turn started up ?Tsdnwin.exe? installation program which then crashes (freezes) the system.
I had to use the Windows ?Task Manager? to End the Task.

Can this be a compatibility problem for win7 64 bit OS?
Or is my Win7 OS somehow corrupted?

Next I installed and tried ODD FW Liveupdate program and it too fails with an error message :

?that due to a system problem it failed to operate a program by
automatically connecting to it.?

Can anyone suggest what might be the problem here?

A:Failure of Firmware Upgrade of Samsung DVD Writer using Win 7 (64bit)

According to this page, you shouldn't need to worry about drivers or firmware. What I would suggest is completely uninstalling the driver from your Device Manager. Restart your computer. Windows 7 should pick up and install the burner fine.

Don't download driver and firmware files from anywhere but the manufacturers website, problems like this happen way more often when you do that

The MP3 player contends that it's memory is full, yet it has nothing in its navigational tree. The mp3 device has corrupted before; however, last time it simply froze on one track rendering it impossible to change tracks without the device shutting down. In this instance there are no tracks to attempt to switch to, the only thing that works is the radio.

My solution was simple, reinstall the firmware implementing YP-MT6 updater--just like last time I had an issue. Sadly, the firmware install freezes well under half way through when it says "locking drive[ers?]" it was one of the two.

Anyway to beet this problem? 'Cause I'm at a loss. Not a happy costumer as far as this little samsung is concerned--i figured their phones were great so their other stuff should be too! Ha.

I turned on my computer and a message popped up to update my 3 month old Samsung firmware.
I used Magician 4.5, pushed the button, and it said "failed to update drive with new firmware".
Oh? When I rebooted later my OS would not boot. I went into the bios and it ID'd the drive as Samsung 3.
Now I can't boot the drive at all. I burned the ISO of the firmware update but it can NOT find the drive in DOS.

Hello Friends.  I successfully installed a Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD as a boot drive just fine.  However, it looks like the Windows 10 NVME driver is being used in place of the Samsung NVME driver.  I saw this post here where it says: "Windows is indicating it is using the NVMe driver for this drive." However I do not know how to determine this myself.  I am using a utility called "AIDA64 Extreme" and it's telling me the driver provider for the 950 is Micrososft and the driver version is 10.0.14393.0.  So, how do I get the 950 to use the Samsung driver instead?  Thanks for any help.

"This Program only runs on a Samsung PC.
Program will terminate."

I try to use some of the software that came with the Samsung Series 7 PC.
I will not let me open the program.
I have an Archos 9 PC and would like to use it.

Can anyone make it so that I can install this software on any other PC?
Sometimes it's a simple edit,can anyone look in to this?

Software can be downloaded from the Samsung website here(it's under manuals & downloads/software):
Support - Tablet PCs XE700T1A | Samsung Tablet PCs

May you please attempt to fix Play Touch App (Software) (ver.,Play Touch Luancher (Software) (ver., and Touch Supporter (Software) (ver.

Note: Play Touch Laucher says the same message as above,but still manages to open, Touch Supporter does not though

A:Samsung Series 7 software on non-Samsung PC.

That software is only licensed to use on the Samsung PC it came on, so I don't know why you would expect it to work on any other PC.

Samsung is also the most difficult model to get the OEM software to work after a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which is entirely legal and recommended for most users of preinstalled Windows to get the best Win7 performance.

But for Samsung it's especially important to back up the Recovery Image and make a secondary Win7 backup image so that if any features are missing after Clean Reinstall and the Samsung software won't work correctly, you can set it back to factory condition.

I have two Samsung NVMe 950 Pro (MZVKV512) that came preinstalled in a Lenovo ThinkPad P50 running Windows 10 x64. The Samsung Magician (latest v4.9.6) software does not detect the drives as Samsung Brand SSDs and therefore OS Optimization is unavailable (the only option is to run a benchmark). Samsung Magician supports this SSD as I can see users in other forums using the software on their systems (not necessarily Lenovo). I have also installed the Samsung NVMe Controller driver and this is showing in Device Manager. There are no system updates available and UEFI BIOS is up to date (version from the 4th May). Any ideas?

Dvd disk drive won't run DVD's. Makes alot of clicking, spinning noises but wont read disks. Went to HKEY areas and changed some things recom by other forums. Didn't work. Told needed firmware upgrade. Unable to find firmware for Optiarc DVD RW AD-7530A ATA Device because as near as I can find it's an OEM Device. Went back to Gateway(Notebook Manufacturer) and they don't have. Any suggestions? Ifu can't fix, I guess u install a new DVD Device or a new Notebook.
Was also told by Gateway I needed a Codec upgrade.

The codec pack is easy enough- Techspot has what you need here
Install and then try running the discs.

How does the drive show up in the Device Manager ? No exclamation mark in a yellow triangle?
What DVD's won't it run-commercial (retail) movies, or discs you are attempting to burn ? If the latter, what brand of discs.

If it definitely requires a firmware update then it seem's you're out of luck as there are none as far as I can tell.

Can anyone tell me what is firmware?

A:what is a firmware?

Firmware - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In electronic systems and computing, firmware is a term often used to denote the fixed, usually rather small, programs and/or data structures that internally control various electronic devices. Typical examples of devices containing firmware range from end-user products such as remote controls or calculators, through computer parts and devices like hard disks, keyboards, TFT screens or memory cards, all the way to scientific instrumentation and industrial robotics. Also more complex consumer devices, such as mobile phones, digital cameras, synthesizers, etc., contain firmware to enable the device's basic operation as well as implementing higher-level functions.

Better than I can explain it.

I am thinking of changing the firmware of my Linksys WRT54G router to the open source application of Tomato.

Has anyone done this?

Based on post at, the hack is supposed to give your router more features and allow you to tweak the router's settings.

Any thoughts?

There are a number of 3rd party firmware packages for many Linksys models, one of the more popular ones is DD-WRT. I've heard good things about that one, I suspect Tomato is probably a similar thing, though I haven't looked into that particular package.

I downloaded the latest version, which lifted me from US03 to US07. It installs and asks me to restart. I restart, and when it boots back up, my DVD drive is no longer recognized.

Face it, CD/DVD/BLU-RAY all use firmware on their drives, digital cameras use it, USB uses it, video cards on computers use it; pretty much every different kind of hardware I can think of uses firmware.

Firmware is burned program code and data, so all hardware needs program code and data memory to execute.

Aside from programming for hardware directly, all hardware seems to have burned program code in one way or another.

Mice devices/point and click devices have firmware, keyboards, etc.

What kind of router you have? It it is Linksys, there there is a good chance there is one for it.

Keep in mind, RF communications is a two way street. Just by adding power to router you may not solve your problem.

Immagine you and your freind are 1 mile apart, talking to each other via powered loudspeakers, one at each end. Now, you say I want to increase our talking range and I am going to make my speaker 4 times louder. Then you go 4 miles away. Your friend will be able to hear you. You will not be able to hear your freind. He is still on low power, suitable for only 1 mile range of communications. In this situation you have an UNBALLANCED set up which is in one direction adequate and in the other dirction it is NOT. Do you get my point?

I was looking to upgrade the firmware but there is always a warning at the download sites (such as NEC's own site and this one) that the firmware should not be used with OEM drives. Mine was sold as an OEM drive from an online store (Ebuyer) as a single item not as part of a system. Is it safe for me to perform an upgrade?

Hello,I will be helping you with your problems. Please be patient while I assist you.Some points for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of us Please do NOT run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability. Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read.

Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process. Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced.

You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process.

I was wondering your opinions on router firmware. My router is a Linksys WRT160Nv3. I purchased a Roku player and started streaming my video to my tv. The router was terrible, and would not go into wireless N mode. Well it would, but my roku, laptop, and phone would not connect to it.

I looked around and installed DD-WRT, now it works great. I heard tomato is good too, so was just looking for feedback. Thanks

DD-WRT is great, but I would look into powerline adapters if you are streaming video. You get much better throughput and is less of a load on the router.

Hi all

Is there any way i can uninstall my current firmware version, because when i had the old one, everything was going fine, no problems, and since i got the new version, it keeps on blocking my mouse.

Anyone any idea?

Download the older version of firmware, or use your Logitech disc, and install it over the top of the newer version.

can anyone tell me how to update the firmware for my
GD-5000 hitachi dvd rom?

can someone explain in novices terms please

A:updating dvd firmware(please help)

i have downloaded the following text but dont understand the
part between the *'s

When you have downloaded the file, unzip it and save the resulting .exe file to the C:\ directory. Create a DOS boot disk, as detailed above, and boot into DOS mode. Change to the C:\ directory, then type:
*You will be asked to specify the position of your drive on the IDE bus, then the file will run and your f/w will be updated*

Does the model number have to be the same too?

If I use a different firmware for my HDD will it not work or cause damage?

A:To replace the PCB on a HDD does the firmware have to be the same?

The HDD model number and firmware revision should be the same for a PCB replacement to work. Professional data recovery firms will have special tools like "PC-3000" card or "Salvation Data HD Doctor suit" etc to fix firmware issues.

Is there any hacked firmware that would help me increase the Xmit power of the ZyXel P-330W? I am trying to get the signal to reach my basement. No, I don't want to hear about using two routers and bridging connection between them or whatever, I just want to know how to increase the Xmit power of the ZyXel P-330W.

A:Hacked Firmware?

I don't know if this is possible, but it will definately shorten the lifespan of it and probably void the warranty.

How about using two routers and bridging connection between them

Is there any way to do a firmware downgrade on a Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless Broadband router? Ever since I upgraded the firmware, I have been having all kinds of problems with my connections quitting. I have tried logging onto the router to downgrade to the original firmware but it fails every time. I am getting sick of unplugging the router and restarting the modem every time this happens. My connection to the internet won't even last a day before it quits! If it is not possible to downgrade is there ANY way to fix my problem without going out and buying a new router?

A:Router Firmware

There should be a reset button on the back of the router. This will reset everything to default so you'll need to reconfigure everything.

I have a HP Z800 which has a Seagata Barracuda ST31500341AS which I would like to upgrade the firmware for. Seagate has "4D8H-SD1B" as the latest version. My disk doesn't have firmware from Seagate though, but "HP23" that came with it when shipped. Does this contain changes from HP that are needed or useful? I tried to find the latest version of the HP firmware as well. On I find "HP26 Rev. B (14 Mar 2011)", but only some other models of Barracuda disks are listed (ST3500620AS, ST750630AS, ST31000340AS). I'm wondering if my model shouldn't be listed there as well. I'm also wondering if HPs firmware for these disks add something that is needed or useful, or if I could use Seagate's own.

A:Barracuda firmware

Firmware HP26 Rev. B (14 Mar 2011)" only applies to Seagate drives... ST3500620AS, ST750630AS, and ST31000340AS. You can not flash the firmware to Seagate version... the flash routine will kick out an error. Please send KUDOs
