Flash 16x IOMagic drive to Benq 1655?

Postby M17 on Fri Jan 20, 2006 12:18 am

Hey did anyone have any luck flashing IO Magic drive (benq 1655 oem) with Benq firmware?
Is it possible at this time?
Does it work?
What to look for on the IOmagic box to assure that it's benq 1655 oem drive?

I dont' think anyone has tried, primarily because BenQ hasn't released a firmware update for the DW1655 yet. Once one is released it will probably be only a matter of time before you can crossflash it with utilities like BQFlasher.
