Flashing new firmware into DVD writer
Well, probably there is no solution but get an old hard drive and install Windows on it, but I'll ask anyway.
I have a Samsung SATA DVD writer which has several firmware updates available. I have a reason to believe the firmware it was shipped with is buggy. However, the only update i was able to find is a Windows executable. Out of curiosity I tried to run it under Wine and of course it is not able to access hardware.
Any bright ideas how to flash this drive without Windows?
