Thanks for the responses.
[QUOTE=bevills1;2264577]Have you tried the Book Type Utility from http://club.cdfreaks.com/f44/comprehensive-liteon-tools-collection-v5-0-7-revised-8-january-2007-a-83441/? It works for Sony, Memorex and other LiteOn rebadges, and it should work for HP LiteOn rebadges.[/QUOTE]
Okay, I ran the utility, and it says “F/W not support!” Which I’m assuming means I’m out of luck.
Are you aware that crossflashing your drive to other firmware (including Liteon stock firmware) will void any warranty at least of your drive?
Edit: Have you already tried latest firmware update from HP Support Website:
Resolves compatibility issues with DVD(+/-)RW media.
Firmware states my system does not “meet the minimum requirements for the update”…which makes no sense, but ok.
How difficult is crossflashing a drive? I’m certainly no wiz on the pc, but it might be worth the chance.
I could probably get my old burner and hook it up as a second drive. That might be the best way to handle this.
