    Typically you get a bin file and an application file.
    Run the application file and follow directions.

    link is to firmware for a burner in a Dell PC.
    If you have a Dell PC, go ahead and install it.

    Still couldn't find anything in my research.
    If this update doesn't work guess I'm screwed lol.
    There's two applications that came with it,
    gotta find out which one though. Let you know
    what happens.

    Which application???
    The f/w reflash thing??

    I checked FLASHD1N and it says, "sorry!! this app only runs lower than windows 98".
    Something like that, I don't remember. If this one won't work will the other one
    work. The link I put up there? I didn't see any instructions when I finished downloading it.

    So, I read some things to do before updating but I don't know which application to run.

    Yes, I have a dell computer.

    If you don't feel confident about flashing the drive, don't .
    In my initial response I suggested Verbatim disks as the first choice.

    Quality disks by Taiyo-Yuden or Verbatim are available by mail order.

    I want to update the firmware only choice I have.
    So, answer my question.
    If FLASHD1N is the firmware and it doesn't work on my computer.
    Do I have to look for another???

    I am having the same problem except that it is my DVD recorder, not my computer. The TDK blank DVDs cannot be read by my recorder. Do I just throw the disks out? Should I try to get my money back from TDK? Someone suggested that I "clean" my DVD player. Could that be the problem?
