Using dell inspiron 5448 with HDD 1 TB + SSD 8 GB, windows 10, 64 bit working fine.
Found the new Seagate fimware on the dell support as follows
Seagate ST500LM000/ST1000LM014 Firmware Update
File Name: Kahuna V_ZPE.exe
Description: Hard-Drive (47.16 MB)
Release Date: 09 Nov 2016
Version: DEMM/DEMN ,A05
The installation failed on my laptop with an alarm box showing unable to identify the boot partition, please use the USB boot key or CD ISO image of this utility instead.
Confused since installation instruction said just download and it will be automatically installed.
Called Dell but the agent said nothing they could do.
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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
I suggest you right click windows logo (or click yellow folder), click and expand 'File Explorer', 'This PC', and then check to see if Seagate update is either in your downloads or documents. If yes, I suggest you open the file and click 'Run As Administrator'.http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19997181

I suspect that if your drive is not listed here: ALL FIRMWARE UPDATES - see here - Seagate Community Forums
Which I don't see, a firmware update is not needed nor compatible with the update.
Also read this: Does my drive need a firmware update?
I own a S440 and I like to upgrade the firmware for the Seagate SHDD ( http://support.lenovo.com/de/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/ThinkPad-S-Series-laptops/ThinkPad-S44...) There is no bootable iso or anything I can use directly. At least I need the correlation between the extracted *.LOD files and the compatibles HDD. Seagte does not have any further information about this firmware upgrade. (https://apps1.seagate.com/downloads/request.html , Part Number: 1EJ162-073) I guess some OEM restrictions.FreeDOS did not work. with this guide you could at least try to flash the firmware under *nix:https://github.com/jandelgado/general/wiki/Firmware-update-of-Seagate-harddisk-using-Linux Which firmware file do I need? (ST500LM000-SSHD-8GB)Why lenovo do not release at least a bootable WinPE for flashing firmwares?

I am trying to update the firmware of my iriver T30. I am using the tool provided by iriver. I am able to delete the firmware from my T30 but I cannot install the new firmware on the T30. It just hangs, and I have to close the program after many hours, and kill the process on my PC and try again with no luck.
Can someone help me?
I took a firmware update downloaded from Windows Update. The machine shutdown and began flashing the bios. It then restarted and now does not boot at all. It does not even get to the BIOS. It simply restarts and goes to a black screen with no messages or failures. Is there a way to flash the BIOS and/or Firmware from a USB key or DVD? Regards,J.M. Wiley
Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Sorry to hear of the problem you are having. Are you sure you got a BIOS Update from Windows Update? If you did, that is a scary thought. Windows 10 is good for giving you OS and driver updates whether you want them or not. Giving a BIOS Update is kind of over stepping their bounds IMHO.
Have you tried this.....
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 3. Plug in and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
If that didn't correct the problem, can you access the BIOS Setup by repeatedly tapping the F1 key when you first power up the computer. If you can access the BIOS Setup then your problem is most likely an operating system problem with a driver update Microsoft gave you.
Hello Everyone So here's the Update Working Failed Not Touchpad After Firmware situation I Touchpad Not Working After Failed Firmware Update updated my m - dx to Windows Fresh Install Among those that I applied was sp exe found here which I will refer to as patch However for some reason the updater quit and now my touchpad DOES NOT WORK nbsp I think it's a firmware issue in the sense that I've already reinstalled Windows TWICE and yet it still does not work I think what needs to be done is to update the driver correctly and then use the patch to correct the firmware nbsp The Touchpad Not Working After Failed Firmware Update problem is that I tried restarting shutting down multiple times reinstalling the driver both the one provided by HP for my model and the one on the synaptics website to no avail Everytime I try to run the patch I only get the error message A synaptics pointing device driver is required for reflasing Please install a synaptics driver version or newer The problem is that it doesn't work EVEN if I install a newer device driver nbsp Any help you can give will be much appreciated Thank you

Learn How to Post and More. I see that you are having some issues with your TouchPad. Go to your Device Manager and under ?Mice and other pointing devices? you should see Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad. If it is listed there right click and select uninstall then restart your computer and try to install sp58572.exe again. If there is an yellow ! then right click and select Update Driver Software.

I had the same issue on my Dell 7559 today. When it tried to install the update it seemed to go into a loop with similar info. The only way I got it to proceed was - at the point where it changes screens (on my PC, it changes) a list of options appear. After much trial & error, I found I could move from one selection to another, then make a selection by moving the up/down keyboard arrows and entering a choice. Some of the options led to the "Safe" screen, which I couldn't find a use for. The top listing was the only one that I hit on that went through a cycle, that didn't seem to end correctly, but at least it stopped the loop. I'm sur Dell support is needed to make any sense of this one.
If I learn any more, I'll update the info. Mike
January 26, 2009 (Computerworld) Last week, Seagate Technology LLC tried to appease users who for the past two months have swarmed its online support forum to complain that desktop hard drives have been freezing up during data transfers or failing altogether.
Seagate late last week released the second of two fixes for the firmware bug that caused the problem, and it offered affected users free data recovery services from its i365 business unit.
The company first tried to fix the bug on Jan. 16, but new firmware it released that day had flaws of its own.
use the link above for the original article
I've been following this for the past couple of weeks now, I think the point the article is trying to make is that the 1st firmware revision released on the 16th also bricked drives, but the 2nd firmware fix is OK... at least the drive I applied the 2nd firmware to is fine.
I've got 5 more to try.
I have a Dell 630i. I recieved in the mail a CD for a firmware fix for a Seagate Barracuda firmware fix for the 750mb harddrive. Has anyone done this? Has everything gone all right? It is my sons computer and we are not very tech savey. What is the correct method for doing this upgrade? Is there a danger of ruining the drive? If everything seems to be working OK should I ignore the fix? The CD is dated April 20, 2009. Is this the latest update or should I download from the Dell site? Thank you very much for any help to can give a "nervous" parent.
I resolved the issue by calling Dell and thier technician took control by remote connection and updated the frimware. All is good.

Please identify your notebook with its complete product name or product number.- see This HP web document if you don't how to locate the model number and\or product number. Is your notebook still covered under warranty? Check your warranty status Here. Was the hard drive one that was delivered with the notebook or is it one that you installed? Where did you get the firmware update from? Was it from the HP or Seagate support website?

The computer was rebooted unintentionally and I am able to get online and the drive tray opens/closes. The drive is reading my xp disks etc but not most of the ones I made copies of data to over the past few yrs. Still unable to copy to blank ones. After reboot I checked cdvdinfo again and got this msg...
Firmware Revision: B110
Vendor Specific: 07/06/25
Drive Region Locked: Yes
Region Setting Status: Not Permanent
Number of User Changes Left: 4
Number Of Manufactor Reset Left: 4
Current Region Code: 1
CDR-Read Speed: 48 CDR-Write speed: 16
That test is with no disk in the drive.
Also, I had a blue error screen when it rebooted but it went away as I was trying to write down the info and it auto loaded to desktop.
Is there any possible way I can still backup my files to disk or is the drive shot? Checking google regarding the driver region lock it offered some software to bypass but I don't want to install anything else that could potentially harm the drive further. I purchased this Dell E520 directly from Dell summer 07 and the hardware warranty has since expired. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks
I tried installing 64bit Win 7 Ultimate on mirrored 3TB Seagate HDD using a Digitus RAID card and failed. After the failed attempt, I disconnected the HDD and plugged the primary HDD to an on-board SATA connector only to find its capacity reduced to 750 GB. Windows Preinstallation Environment shows the same size and running clean produced no effect.
Something odd I noticed after running diskpart is that no matter how many drive is connected to onboard SATA, it only shows the 750 GB and the PC name is MINWINPC.
I`m completely stuck with this and cannot figure any solution. Please anyone help me restore the original 3TB size.
Looking forward to replies.
Could you please have a look at it from disk management and post a screenshot?

My laptop hard drive is not detecting.
It is giving out beeps, when powered.
I hear 1 beep, after 2 seconds i hear 2 beeps, after 2 more seconds 3 beeps , this 1,2 and 3 beeps repeats after 5 seconds.
I can hear the hard drive spining/rotating though.
The beeps are heard like this:
The hard drive is a Seagate ST92130AG - 2.1 GB HDD
Can anyone help me with the beep codes or help me find the beep/error cades for this hard drive.
I called Seagate, the support guy said that the hard drive is outdated and he was not sure about the details of beep codes.
[FYI: the beeps r not given out by motherboard, Seagate harddrives have beep codes]
<>Seagate harddrives have beep codes<>
Never heard that before!

You can go to Device Manager and find the printer and in properties it gives you the option to "roll back" the driver to a previous version. A firmware update and driver update mean 2 different things, to me anyways. My understanding is a firmware update offers "improved" instructions to the onboard chip of the device. What does HP say about the problem?
This is a first for me, friends.
I have a lovely Seagate Free Agent USB-attached backup drive, which worked fine until it was out of warranty but now fails powerup.
What a dilemma since there is no other way to talk to it....

Ooh, my task bar and desktop just disappeared and I just got a message saying:
Windows - System Error
Unknown Hard Error
And when I clicked OK, it just reappeared. When I tried to shut down, my computer locked up, so I had to shut down manually.
Restarting failed, but my computer seems to be working again now that I have switched the HDs to different SATA ports again. For now...
This can't be good...

Please advise on why I can't update the firmware. Every time I get the message that the upgrade has failed.
I have an Olympus Evolt-500 that won't update the firmware. I'm running XP pro with a DSL internet connection. I've talked to every tech support person Olympus has and they don't have a clue what's wrong.
It will recognize the camera and lenses but it will download from 50% to 83% of the firmware update, then a message pops up and says no connection to server and everything shuts off.

Hey guys I have a Samsung SH-S222L. Should I upgrade the firmware to SB02?
Are you having a problem the firmware upgrade corrects? If not, leave it alone.
I periodically check the website for my router to see if there are any new firmware updates. I checked it today and every time i try it says :
A New Version is Found. Do You Want to Upgrade to the New Version Now?
Current VersionV220.127.116.11 New VersionV18.104.22.168
I click Yes.
It then tells me that the update failed.
I am running an XP machine.
I have Verizon DSL.
I have a Westell model 2200 modem and a netgear wnr2000 router.
Any other information you need i will try my best to provide. Just ask.
Laptop is a Dell Vostro 1000 with XP Home SP3. Just installed a Crucial SSD. Works great. Tried to install a firmware update; not so great. Following the instructions from the Crucial site, I downloaded the update (it's an ISO file) and burned it to a CD. In the BIOS, changed boot order to CD drive first. Restarted the laptop. No joy - Windows still boots to the desktop. What could be wrong? I know almost nothing about using ISO files. TIA.
CD-image ISO files have to be written to CD in a special way, if you just copied the ISO file to a CD like a normal file, that won't work. There's a free app for creating a CD from an ISO file, it's called IMGBurn: http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/

I don't know much about firmware updates as I never had to do it but my DRW-2014L1Tburners are giving me some coasters in vista x64. Not 1 coaster under Nero 6 in xp pro.
I got the driver update listing in the sticky, went to the asus site to check on a firmware update for my burner's for x64 vista and there are 3 hopefully that will eliminate the coasters.
My question is: If I get the updates for the 64-bit vista will that interfere with those drives when I use xp pro ?
PS: I use swappable drives; switching between vista x64 and xp pro.
only keeping xp for gaming and Nero 6

no the firmware should be backwards compatible
Hello, I have recently purchased an "Onyx Portable Media Player" by "Mach Speed Technologies". I installed the included drivers and software and am currently upgrading the firmware. The update window says "SigmaTel MSCN Firmware", so I'm assuming it's licensed by SigmaTel. It's updating from version 000.000.000 to 880.282.433. The window's progress bar seems to be stuck at "Initializing", with no advances made in the main progress bar but the smaller one constantly filling and then refilling. Is this just going to take a long time or is there something wrong?
I can provide a screenshot if needed.
Is this the media player firmware or motherboard?
Why did you feel the need to upgrade the firmware?
I have Aspire E 14. Last night, I saw I have 1 critical update for firmware v1.17. When I clicked the update button it just says "updating" It just goes on and is not stopping. I closed the portal and a window appears saying reflashing. I saw it did reflash up to 100%, but why won't the critical update notification disappear on Acer Care Center portal? I also checked update history and the firmware is not yet included. I tried it again the next morning, clicked the update button, but still, it just says updating and can go on until you close the portal. Any solution? Did my Aspire really did reflash? It seemed nothing has changed. Thanks in advance!http://community.acer.com/t5/Aspire-Desktops/Update-on-firmware-v1-17/td-p/443847/jump-to/first-unread-message

HP-Update FIRMWARE update problem?

Well I don?t have a blank disk but I hit bootable cd anyway thinking it would create some file on the hard drive. Well obviously that?s not what it had in mind because my disk drive opened, I shut the disk drive and it started saying writing data to disk. HOW could it do that with no disk. I couldn?t close it. It then said installation succesfull. What the heck. I restarted my computer to see if I had screwed up my system and it seams to be running fine. Have I screwed up my hard drive? Did the dang update install? Can I delete these firmware updte files lying around on my desktop? Please help me????

Hey. I am wanting to update firmware for my dvd burner. I know it is a NEC DVD+-RW ND 3650, but after that i have no idea how (or even if I can) update its firmware. Any help would be great thanks!

First of all a firmaware update is not a "driver". all optical drives use the windows native drivers and only MS updates that. I have never seen a firmware update as you describe open a command prompt window. if Pioneer actually uses this method then you will probably have to set the command prompt to the location of your drive. ie; type the locaion ( drive letter of the drive you are updating) if your pioneer is the D drive then you would type D:\ and then press enter
I have a Toshiba Notebook with following internal DVD-RW drive: "TS L632D T004 Toshiba".
The problem is, this drive doesen't burn DVD+r DL without failures.
I made quite much attempts with 10 DL DVDs und five different burning suites, without success.
So I guess to fix this failure with a firmware update.
Can somebody tell me where I can get this update?
Why should this issue related to the firmware?
In my opinion you should try removing the upper and lower filters in registry. Just follow this article:
And firmware updates you can get from the Toshiba website.
Ye hi i have downloaded from Zyxels home page the latest Firmware and now my question is how do i update it? Because when i open the containing folder i have three files bin, pdf and rom. In the pdf theres just some information about what is new in the update and so on, but how do i open the two other files, i mean they are too small to be burned on a disk!!
You perform the firmware update from within the router's web user interface. Log into the router and there should be a option under one of the menus to upload new firmware to the unit.

Newer BIOS chips have what is called a boot block sector. When flashing the BIOS this part is not flashed. Basically all it does is run the floppy drive, and if you are lucky you will also get basic video. I have re-flashed a "dead" BIOS with this. The MB was manufactured in 1998. The first attempt at flashing failed-nothing but beeps on restart. I downloaded the correct Bios update, made a new floppy to flash the BIOS and reran the flash program. There was nothing on the monitor, just a black screen, but I could hear the floppy drive being accessed. Follow the flash utility instructions and let it do its' thing. It took several long minutes, but it worked.
I'm providing this link below. Do not hold me or vistax64 responsible.

Finally, you can approach your manufacturer of your PC or bios to purchase a replacement.

Uninstall Mysql and see if that fixes your issue. if not, I suggest you contact Seagate support because they do warn that firmware upgrades can damage data on the hard drive if procedures are not properly followed.

I have an ADATA S510 120gig SSD, i tried downloading the Firmware upgrade tool seen on this page
S510 SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive, Download, S510, 500 Series, Solid State Drive, Welcome to ADATA
I opened the tool and it didnt find my SSD drive. I then downloaded the file itself to try and manually install it but it is a "VIC" file, i dont even know how to open it.
Does anyone have experience with updating their firmware on these SSD drives? What am i doing wrong?
edit: after digging around on my machine i found that i have firmware 3.3.2 which is apparently the latest firmware out there right now (i didnt know that till i just found this info out, this machine is 2 weeks old)
I started my PC with a Linux live DVD (Knoppix) because my ADATA S510 SSD Device is my boot device and device with OS (W7).
So I run the Linux version of the updater (you must be root!) and all worked fine!
But: please check the signature (for example 22739) - it has to be in the filename of the firmware update!
PS: my drive was not 3.3.2....now it is! I hope my problems (bluescreen) are gone now!
It took me almost one hour to find this firmware update for my ADSL modem so that's why I uploaded it to Skydrive and make it hopefully a little bit easier for you.
My modem kicked me of the web a few times every day and then it also had a "broken internet connection" so that there was a little yellow notification triangle on the network adapters icon even if the "internet providers" signal was ok it couldn't connect...
Any how, I updated the firmware and I have been running it for a few days now and no connection problems.
Here is the link and there is also a manual included (and in the comments you can see a really short description on how to update the firmware).
This is a follow up in a way I had asked about the N-routers and how to get good reception in a large house Based on the responses and reviews of this router Linksys WRT GL I chose this one router to do the trick with the option of installing another one upstairs to increase coverage if needed The price of of these was cheaper than one N router or a router and repeater The Lisksys software is pretty lame I was able to get my computer hooked up fairly easily but my roommate could not get online which is more important as update WRT54GL for Linksys Firmware I am on the road all the time and he is stuck at home I Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL reset the router before I left so hopefully he can get himself hooked up before I get home in days The coverage seems great I get very good or excellent in all corners of the house I see things about installing a second party firmware to improve it further Any suggestions about which firmware and details about how to update and use this firmware Thanks nbsp
You need to find out why your roomate can not connect. Is it becasue of bad coverage? But, you said the coverage is great. If it is a secure network and your roomate is using the correct password/key, and if the coverage is great, then some setting issue must be dealt with in the roomate's computer.
Why do you need third party firmware for your router? That may not solve your roomate's problem, becasue as I said, it could be in roomate's computer. I have heard using third party firmware on Linksys gives much more features. One of them is to increase the power out of the router. But, again, all those feature may not help you with the problme that your have.
First do this on your computer, then on roomate's:
Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:
Type the following command:
Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Just a note of caution, I would recommend doing a full system image before updating the firmware especially since you are having issues.
I am not advocating updating the BIOS on the Dell, but have you checked Dell's website and the associated release notes for any/all Bios upgrades?
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.

Touch pad is not working also the update firmware v1.17 keeps on failing. Please help. Btw, I'm using Aspire E 14 E5-473-304W.http://community.acer.com/t5/E-and-M-Series-Laptops/Touch-pad-is-not-working-also-the-update-firmware-v1-17-keeps-on/td-p/443992/jump-to/first-unread-message
Hello, I had no problems with the touchpad in my first two months of owning this computer. Recently when I try to use the touchpad, the cursor bounces all over the place and I have no control over it. This is espescially annoying when I am at work and need this to work correctly when I am gathering data in an excel doc. I noticed there was a 1.17 firmware update for the synaptics driver in the care center, but when I click to install it will run for a second and then say "failed". Just updated BIOS and every other driver I could think of but it makes no difference.
Hi ! Have you trying Unistalling the driver for the Touchpad? Must of the times unistalling the drivers and restarting your unit will actually fix the issue. If you access the Device Manager (Press Windows key +X)> Select Device Manager > Mice and other pointer device, Right Click> Unistall> Restart. Some updated on Windows sometimes will disable the proper Drivers for your unit. Hope this could help you!http://community.acer.com/t5/V-and-VN-Series-Laptops/Touchpad-firmware-update-VN7-592G/td-p/413929/jump-to/first-unread-message
Hello, I am interested in updating the firmware and bios to my LSI SAS1068 integrated on my xw8600. I would like it to remain bootable and be used in a RAID 0 configuration. Can you provide me with any insight as to which firmware files to use and where I could acquire them... Also what is the original LSI name for this controller. Thanks in advance for any info you can provide. Best regards, Johny4.51http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Firmware-update-for-SAS1068-on-xw8600/td-p/5607782
Last night I went ahead and took the plunge ... Updated the Firmware on my Archos 70 Internet Tablet 250GB (2.1.3 - Android 2.2.1).
My tablet still worked after the update. Slower than before though.
This morning I found out that I can't get online!
None of my four radio apps work (they all worked fine before).
Bible.is no longer works.
All three of my browsers no longer work.
Firmware Update doesn't work (can't connect to the Internet).
Wi-Fi shows that my Archos is connected to my Internet service. My son and I are both online with our computers, so there is nothing wrong with our Internet connection.
Looks like I have no choice now, but to reformat the Archos and start all over again (for the 4th time!!!!) .... That will be very time consuming, as I will have to download all of my many apps all over again, and then reload all of my files all over again ....
If your wireless network is encrypted, have you tried resetting the WPA key?
I flashed my Toshiba slim-drive SD-C2502 DVD-ROM with the latest firmware from Dell's website.
After it didn't work and it gives me the IDE #1 error before booting to Windows XP. I know I can eject before the error message but after that, it just doesn't eject at all nor detected.
I tried flashing it again but there is no drive it can detect to flash it. From the past, it seems like no way but I was hoping I can force flash it perhaps?
Any other suggestions would be grateful.
Heh. I hate to say it, but I think you're dead in the water. Up the river with no paddle so to speak. It sounds like you're going to have to replace the drive.
I've noticed a slow down in my Plextor PX-708A and thought that installing the latest firmware would a good idea.
The firmwares listed on the plextor site only listed for:
As far as i am aware my drive is just a Plextor PX-708A drive.
What are the 708A/UF 708A/UF2 drives??? How do i know if my drive is one of these?
Looking at this site:
You'll find that the "A" model is the IDE internal drive, and the UF & UF2 models are external USB/Firewire drives.
However, following the link from PX-708A to firmware upgrades did not show a download for the "A" model, only for the others.
I put in my IP address, and get to the modem. I believe there is a way to take my modem out of the mix and update the firmware on my Linksys router, but I'll be darned if I can figure it out. I called Linksys, but they want me to sign up for 90 day tech support, and I need to spend the $$ on a new router if the firmware update doesn't solve my problems! :-/
Can anyone help me?
I have a Motorola SB6141 modem and a Linksys EA6500 router.
gang I've been web-searching for updated firmware or a way to do it on Hitachi travelstar internal 2.5" hdd... I have one that is producing frequent read errors, but running chkdsk the drive is 'squeaky clean' from a surface standpoint. I was hoping I might update..... can't find a thing
this drive failed the HP builtin [BIOS] HD tests, short and long, and failed the HGST diags tests, short and long [though the SMART status was all rosey ] Specifically the tests point to read-access failures which produce a string of Windows 7 system 'critical' events since the OS timing is scrambled by fetches that return no response.
nagging in the back of my brain is an ugly scenario: what if the issue is with the Mboard component? what would clue me in that the drive interface is at issue ? disc is a lot more likely I agree but it just doesn't feel like an ordinary disk fail
Hi there .. The place to look for a firmware update should be the HP website .. Not sure that it will help much thoughhttp://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/301422-any-way-update-hitachi-travelstar-firmware.html
For some reason the firmware for thunderbolt won't update on my p70. I've tried installing from a command prompt and using the installer. Either way it seems to work but the firmware version doesn't change. I have the hdmi cable connected to a monitor and have the thunderbolt software running. I've rebooted and tried again. I've booted into safe mode then rebooted and tried again. I've uninstalled the thunderbolt controller and tried again all to no avail. Ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/P70-HDMI-Thunderbolt-Firmware-won-t-update/td-p/3381587

My DVD Drive
Sony DDU-1621 DVD-ROM 16X/48X
I tried to update my dvd rw, but this is what I get.
Make sure that all other ATAPI devices are disconnected, if possible. If the drive is no longer under warranty, try the PS0B stock flash from CodeGuys. Using this patched version may invalidate any warranty.
But, what is the reason for the upgrade? They just as often as not lead to problems.
I would like to update the firmware of my SSD, INTEL SSDSC2CT120A3, but Google gives me results of Intel? SSD 330 Series. I don't know if my SSD model is Intel? SSD 330
I would recommend you start here:
Download Intel® Solid State Drive Toolbox
I downloaded the firmware update for my CD/DVD writer. Burned it to a CD per the instructions and restarted the PC with the CD in. The PC restarts, reads the CD and then... nothing. No on-screen instructions, nothing.
The CD/DVD drive is bootable per the bios.
Any idea how to make this work?

Nero Info Tool should tell you the drive's firmware: http://www.nero.com/enu/support-nero8-tools-utilities.html
You can also run that same firmware update utility and I think it tells you if the firmware versions and if there's a newer version.
You can try the WinDVD trial: http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/ca/en/Product/1189528458632#versionTabview=tab1&tabview=tab4
You have a weak CPU and that may be the problem.

I have been receiving many failed updates, and i have tried methods like using the troubleshooting method to fix it. I have also tried downloading the updates from Microsoft center which still doesn't work as it stated as "ungenuine update"...

Hello smeraldan and welcome to Seven Forums.
My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything. Sometimes malware can prevent Windows Updates from installing. Run a full scan with your personal anti-malware suite. Then use the free Malwarebytes to run another full scan. (No anti-malware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.)
Another possible problem is if system files became damaged or corrupt. I'd run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
You could also try running the System Update Readiness Tool if you haven't already done so.
System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008
Try installing the updates again, but this time just do a few at a time (maybe only 5 or so.) Keep track of the KB numbers. Start with the critical updates, then the important, and save the optional for last. If a group of 5 installs OK go on to the next group. If any group fails to install you'll know which group to uninstall. Try installing just one update at a time. If they install OK go on to the next group. Otherwise just ignore the problem update(s) for the time being and continue installing in groups of 5.
