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.
Upgrade a Traxdata CDR4120 Pro to a Teac CD-R55S
This trick should only be used on the Traxdata CDR4120 Pro model number and it doesn't work on any other Traxdata model.

There are two ways to do the modification:

  • The easiest way is to immediately upgrade the Traxdata CDR4120 Pro to the latest Teac firmware available (1.0l) in binary format, which has been extracted from the original Teac updater program, using the utility called Scsi_flw.exe.
    Obviously this binary file is not officially released by Teac, it officially doesn't exist and perhaps someone could have some fear using it. However me and some friends of mine used it and we have no problem updating.
  • The second way is a bit longer but uses files released officially by Teac.
    The latest Teac Firmware available use a Win9x application which looks for Teac burner, that is why it won't work directly when you have a Traxdata CD-Writer. But as often "look for in the past to go to the future!". First of all install Firmware (1.0g) from DOS using the Scsi_flw.exe utility, then use the Teac official updater to update your new Teac CD-Writer to the latest official Teac firmware available.

It is always possible to reinstall original Traxdata firmware (5.0j) again using the Scsi_flw.exe utility.
