[qanda]This thread is about the LG GGW-H20N. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi. I am running into a bit of a problem with my BD burner. In brief, I bought a BuffaloTech external blu-ray burner. It houses an LG GGW-H20N blu-ray burner. The firmware on the Buffalo is XJ03. Buffalo tells me they will not be upgrading the firmware at all. To use the LG firmware could ruin the drive. I want to know if there is a way to cross flash the firmware (most recent) to my Buffalo drive.
As far as why I want to do this, I ran into a problem with 50gb blu-ray discs. I had been making movies with no problem on 25 gb disc using TSMuxer, and burning with either Nero or ImgBurn. No coasters even with “crappy” blank media. I went to a 50gb TDK from Japan and haven’t been able to burn it on any software I’ve tried, Nero, Cyberlink, Imgburn - they all return some sort of burn error.
So, that’s the history! Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
