1653 problems (jumping buffers and slow)

vbimport

#1

i got a problem

cstr after flash makes my drive just blink and not stop blinking and wont read disc or burn, flash back to csom and works


#2

You must apply the crossflashing patch!


#3

i must have downloaded the wrong crap

some xflash junk

why would i need to crossflash when i am already using 1653 csom firmware?

also no option in the flasher to crossflash, but thats not the point

i will see what i can do just because :slight_smile:


#4

Is your drive a true 1653S model. If not, you have to use OmniPatcher to patch the flasher firmware with the crossflash patch, in the general patches tab. :wink:

Run OmniPatcher, Load firmware, Select patch, Save and then reflash the drive with the saved firmware…

alright i did all that, wouldnt burn ttg02’s

so i went back to csom and still no dice, power calibration, i can burn other media, now when i load a blank disc windows doesnt pull up the blank disc screen

:frowning:

reinstaLLING MY SOFTWARE MAYBE HELP?


#6

someone have a idea on what to do

right now i am back to csom

#7

man, after working so good for do long, i think its dying

has buffer problems when writing now and very bad scans of burnt with buffer problems and takes forever now

:frowning:

time to go to newegg and get the 1693 for 39.99 i think

Switch on DMA and check your burst rate with cdspeed.


#9

Did some merging of posts…

Sometimes DMA can be switched off by a firmware flash (dunno why). See ala42’s post for the solution to your problem. :slight_smile:


#10

well it will burn every other one right, :frowning:

would a virus or spyware maybe be causing this, my comp is kinda acting funny, should i pull it and try it in another machine?


#11

well i guess it was just being like a woman, picky about the media i fed it

now it seems to be back stronge burning

i guess it doesnt like ttg02’s much

back to costco they go

i am still watching it close tho

going do a reformat soon just because
