Its been available for some time but I dont know why. It could be useful though if someone could figure out a drive that used the same chipset as the philips in our xbox, maybe there would be a replacement for the 616 that woldne be so dmn expensive.

the firmware isn't for updating. it was saved from the drive in hope a pc-dvd that uses the same parts could be found and converted like the 616t.

why would you want to? the firmware is already available for download and is the same as the one (that was?)in your drive!

reading your previous post, i would hazard a gues that you have killed your philips!

Yes, MKTFLASH hangs and I have to stop it (CTR-C)
under winxp, MTKWINFLASH (and windows) can not find my philips and if I force, I have an error : flash type not reconized
However, the bios have detect correctly the drive.

Now in the xbox, I have always "No Disc" !

perhaps the firmware I have downloaded (from www.CNN.com) is for the old philips (my xbox is from 24-03-2003)

can any one give me his philips firmware ?

Is there an alternative to MTKFLASH ?

Please help me rolleyes.gif
