Hey everyone, my first post. I’m hoping you can help.
I’ve searched the forums and seen this problem mentioned, but I haven’t seen any definitive solutions.
I got the 411S at the “Best Buy” thanksgiving sale and I’m just getting around to installing it.
Problem 1: The drive came with firmware FS02 and I’m trying to flash it to FS0F. Every time I execute the firmware update the utility comes up with a window that says “error - no drive detected”. Here are some specifics…
The drive does show up in the operating system device manager (Win 98 SE) and is recognized by the utility that came with the drive (MyDVD).
The drive was also recognized by Nero after I installed the latest release (it wasn’t prior to that).
The drive is installed as a slave on the secondary IDE bus. Other IDE connections:
Primary Master: Hard drive
Primary Slave: Tape Backup
Secondary Master: Pioneer DVD - CDRW drive
Motherboard: Asus P3V4X with VIA Apollo Pro chipset
Problem 2: DVD X Copy Platinum doesn’t recognize the drive at all. I run DVD X Copy and it asks me to run the drive select utility. When I run that utility there are no drives to select from. Have any of you run into this problem?
Thanks for any information you can provide on either of these problems.
