Code: Select all

Drive Information
OS device name: /dev/sr0
Current profile: DVD-ROM
Manufacturer: ASUS
Product: BC-12B1ST
Revision: 1.01
Serial number: <removed>
Firmware date: 
Bus encryption flags: 12
But, when I try to do anything of interest with the sdftool, I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the firmware date being missing, but I keep hitting a wall, which seems best surmised with:

Code: Select all

$ ./sdftool.sh -d /dev/sr0 help
No drive tool logic found in SDF.bin
Internal error 0x8d000000
and:

Code: Select all

$ ./sdftool.sh -d /dev/sr0 --info
SDF.bin version: 0x006D
Drive Tool SDF not present
Drive Specific SDF not present
Identification SDF present
Of the two missing -- am I supposed to do anything specific to get / provide them? It looks like my drive is supported, just not on this specific firmware, which is... obviously exactly what I'm trying to fix (though I'm not entirely certain if I'm supposed to update to the latest for my system and then downgrade to the BW-16D1HT 3.02 firmware, that seems like what's being recommended but I'm a bit too new to understand the exact benefits, people just keep saying it can be done).

Any guidance on what I'm missing to be able to at least update my firmware would be great.
Did you ever solve this? I also have a 12B1ST at 1.01 and am trying to update it to a libredrive compatible fw, and running into the exact same problem. The devilsclaw flasher from OP also doesn't seem to work...
