Crunching 1653s

#1

i’ve got my 1653s flashed with newest version (about 16 months old), while its never been a very good drive it has worked. for about a month now every time i inserted a disk it would go crunch (sounds like the plastic gears are slipping) then load the disk… now it just plain doesnt work, but if i flash it again (with any firmware version) it will burn one disk then stop working… any ideas??

Sorry for the late reply. Weird! :confused: The newest firmware is now CS0T, which was only released a few months ago. You might want to try this.

When you say it it doesn’t work, what do you mean?


#3

its flashed to that version, but thx for the reply.
by not working i mean the disk just doesnt read and initialize. it tries for a few 10 seconds or so then just gives up.
iam still waiting for a reply from lite on :frowning:

Almost the same problem with my 1653s (CS0T) – awful crunching sounds when DVD+R (these are not recognized at all :sad: ) and DVD-R disks are inserted. Ltnfw comparing says that the contents of the flash-memory and cs0t.bin are identical. Got three letters from Lite-on, with nothing useful in
:frowning: .
