Before you download: Sony Optiarc Europe GmbH is not liable for any damages caused by incorrect installation of firmware updates on its devices. Also note that our firmware updates are not compatible with those provided by OEM vendors (Sony Optiarc drives pre-installed by the PC manufacturers e.g. HP, Dell, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, Apple etc.). You may damage your drive if you flash it with incompatible firmware.

Do not try to flash a S-ATA device with a P-ATA firmware and vice versa. You could damage your drive in doing so. P-ATA drives have the suffix 'A' while S-ATA drives end with 'S' e.g. AD-7200S.

Our firmware update is only available as a Windows Installer.
