just bought benq dw2000
i used flash utility to flash it to 20a3p firmware…
but then everything became wierd

the burner became strange and can’t burn dvd
and when one of my friends told me to flash to 20a4p firmware…not 20a30 firmware…

I tried flash utility…but failed…I can’t flash my dw2000 back to 20a4p firmware…

the machine shows dh20a4p 0p5a…under flash utility…but the “write flash” or “read flash” just can’t be clicked…

can someone kind enough to teach me how to flash back to dw2000 or flash to liteon dh20a4p firmware?

thanks…

What flash utility did you try, and has FlashFix been tried? The benq dw2000 may be equivalent to 1 of 2 different LiteOns depending on dw2000 version according http://club.cdfreaks.com/f44/benq-dw2000-9b3b-liteon-237565/. BTW your post may get more response if a mod could move this thread to the LiteOn burner forum since the drive is a rebadged LiteOn.

Can you still backup your eeprom?
Hint, then maybe [I]ala42[/I] or [I]C0deKing[/I] will be able to help you out.

[I]BTW[/I], FlashFix is of no use here.

If I am not wrong the Benq DW2000 is a rebadged LH-20A1P. 20A3P is different chipset, that’s why it does not work. My suggestion is to try to flash it to a 20a1p using the flash utility.

EDIT: I found that there are two versions of this drive 20A1P and 20A4P and from your post I think it’s a 20A4P. Mmm that makes my post not useful since you have already tried flashing to a 20A4P firmware. Your drive isn’t dead at all. dh20a4p 0p5a means that is reading the bootcode of the drive.

If you don’t have a backup of the firmware from your drive in a .BIN format, find a DH20A4P or appropriate DW2000 firmware in .BIN format, then recover your drive using XSF: http://club.cdfreaks.com/f44/comprehensive-liteon-tools-collection-v5-0-7-revised-8-january-2007-a-83441/#fw-xsf
