I just flashed my BenQ. It was kinda weird because the process was a bit different than what the tutorial said. Also... it doesn't play backups. I currently don't have my originals, so I don't know if it plays originals or not. Basically what happened was, I used dosflash (the latest version) in auto mode to read the original firmware, then I rebooted, erased the flash. Again, I rebooted and tried to write the ixtreme fw, but it kept saying there is no device or something when I entered dosflash. After several rebooting, it finally recognized the device and wrote the fw but without me turning the console off and on! It didn't prompt me anything like the tutorial said. It just worked... writing bank 0,1,2,3 and done! Is this unusual? And also I downloaded a backup from newsgroup for testing purpose, it didn't work even though it said everything is prepatched. I don't know what's wrong... I used verbatim dvd+r dl and nForce4 SATA controller for hooking up the benQ.
