Firmware 1.0 for Panasonic UJDA 760

Post by Popsel »

Hi,
My Yamaha AW16G Mixer/HDD-Recorder uses a Panasonic UJDA360 DVD ROM/CD-RW drive.
These models are hard to find. So I found a Panasonic UJDA760 with Firmware V1.0 does work, too.
I bought 2 UJDA760 Drives with Firmware V1.60 (does not work in Yamaha AW16G).
I need a Firmware Utility for PC to read out the UJDA760 V1.0 Firmware and
then flash the 1.0 Firmware on the UJDA 760 drives with V1.60 Firmware.
The Hardware Version is 1.0 for all drives.
Where can I find a Flash Utility for Panasonic UJDA 760 Drives and optional Firmware V1.0 for UJDA760 ?

Regards
Andreas

These drives are all over eBay with FW v1.0, I just did a quick search and found at least 5.

This guy has modified his to use SD cards

but you see in the photos his drive is a UJDA360 which are also readily available, not what you where looking for I know but may help.

Also this thread the CD drive was replaced and it's all down to internal settings on the Yamaha unit

Maybe worth a shot.

Hi,
thank you for the answer.
UJDA360 drives are cheap to buy in USA. I am in Germany and the shipping costs from USA cost a fortune.
In the meantime I bought UJDA760 with firmware 1.0 but I still have these 2 UJDA760 with firmware 1.60
So a downgrade from 1.60 to 1.00 would be great. If this is not feasible then I will store the 1.60 drives a
spare parts donor. The mechanical / optical parts are the same (it's both HW 1.00 version).
If someone knows what software to use to do a firmware downgrade please let me know.
Best regards and stay healthy.
