where to find benq .bin file?

Postby seanc on Mon Dec 11, 2006 12:23 pm

I have a duplication tower filled with Benq dw1655's. The tower hardware will let me update drive firmware with the bin file on a cd. Everywhere I look I can only download the windows installed for the benq and not just the bin file.

Any ideas on where to find the dw 1655 latest firmware as a bin file? (BCIB is the newest as of 12/2006). Thank you!

This seems to be a feature of the controller used in your burning tower, not a drive feature, so you have to ask the manufacturer of your tower if the answer is not in the manual.

(tried looking on the benq website)


Yes. I only find the windows self contained installer which doesn't give me access to a bin file.

There are no .bin files for Benq drives as there is no flasher that could use them.

I think I remember that site also, and I believe you are correct. That was the only place I knew where to get .bin files, and I don't know of any way to convert the flashers into .bin's. :(

WinDWFlasher uses .cvt files, not .bin files.
