You don't delete the old firmware - it is located in your drive!

1. Take disc out of drive (if there is one in it).
2. Turn off all drive utilities
3. Download the firmware (usually an EXE file)
4. Read the readme in it
5. Run the firmware
6. Reboot.

You should only use genuine Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden media. Many thanks to for their supply and great service.
