I have a Liteon XJ-HD165H that came with CH11 firmware. It works but I thought I should update to the current version of firmware CH12. I'm running WinXP in an IWILL XP333-R system. The Windows firmware updater simply hangs when attempting to "Send Profile". After rebooting DVD drive continues to work. I then tried DOS-based MTKFLASH 1.80.1 booting from a floppy. When I attempt to save the current firmware I get the following messages:
Flash type: SST(SST25VF040)(Serial)
Then it just hangs.
After rebooting drive continues to work.
I then tried updating the firmware with MTKFLASH. I get the same message except:
and then it just hangs.
After rebooting the drive continues to work normally.
Any ideas what wrong with the flash update process? TIA.
