Important Notice
Read the following before attempting any upgrade:
  • Perform the upgrade at your OWN RISK as any upgrade will void your warranty and forfeit any support from the manyfacturer(s).
  • We DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY when something goes wrong during the upgrade.
  • The upgrade is intended for EXPERT USERS only who know what they are doing.
  • Only perform the upgrade when it is absolutely necessary, for example to use the CD-Writer with incompatible burning software programs.
  • Before performing the upgrade turn off and exit ALL CD-related programs which may interfere with the upgrade (especially packet-writing software like Adaptec DirectCD or Ahead InCD).
  • Always power off the computer to perform a COLD BOOT. Then turn on the computer and test if the upgrade was successful.
Introduction
Some companies are selling their CD-Writers to different companies who then repackage the drives and sell them under their own name. In most cases these drives are cheaper that the original brand. In some cases it is possible to reburn the flashrom with the original brand version. See the CD-Writer Technology page for a complete overview of all CD-Writer companies and which drives they are using.

It can be very handy when for example a Traxdata drive is not recognized by a CD-Writer software package and the Yamaha equivalent is.

For example Traxdata is selling the Traxdata CDRW2260 Pro which is in fact a repackaged Yamaha CRW2260 drive:
