OS: [B]Windows XP Pro SP3 Post Ready 2009[/B]
CD/DVD Recorder: [B]Plextor PX-800A (Firmware v1.00)[/B]
Software: [B]ImgBurn v184.108.40.206[/B]
DVD Disc: [B]LG DVD+RW 4.7GB 1-4x Single Sided (RICOHJPN-W11-01)[/B]
Target: [B]ISO file image[/B].
[B]Binflash - Universal firmware flasher for binary firmwares[/B]
[B]Optiarc Bootcode Flasher +[/B]
[B]Extra tools for Optiarc[/B]
Every time I insert the virgin blank disk to burn, ImgBurn says that the disk is not formatted. After formatting the ISO image is burned and when it is being verified an error message is showed. Finally I repeat the process ever with the same symptoms and results.
Yes, I have convert my [B]Plextor PX-800A to Mac OPTIARC AD-7170A v1.NC[/B] with success.
Later I have convert [B]OPTIARC AD-7170A v1.NC to OPTIARC AD-7173A v1.04[/B] with sucess.
Finally, I have convert [B]OPTIARC AD-7173A to OPTIARC AD-7170A v1.05[/B] without succes because I lost the Optiarc drive Identification.
At this point it is when it is impossible for me to change neither the firmware or bootcode and that is why I asked for help.
Luckily I found the solve in [B]Optiarc Bootcode Flasher +[/B] to fix the Optiarc’s drive ID.
At this point Binflash encountered a problem while writing the firmware, reporting that there was an error submitting checksum.
Luckily again, by a message from [B]Liggy[/B] I learn that I have to change the mode of transfer from [B]UDMA to PIO[/B] (http://club.myce.com/f86/binflash-nec-optiarc-firmware-flasher-dumper-105676/index66.html#post2618157).
In Windows XP was very easy to do by changing the transfer mode in [B]Device Manager -> IDE ATA/ ATAPI Controller -> Primary or Secondary IDE Channel[/B].
That is all, the burning problem continue. I gotten to burn the ISO in another drive and when I insert the disc in Plextor is not reconoigced.
