With the news that Cyberhome was no longer manufacturing dvd players and the remaining units becoming harder and harder to find. I decided to purchase a backup player (I have 2) for the future.
My original units were bought/manufactured in’04 and have V13 Bios…both machines play ALL of my dvd backups with no problem. My collection of dvd-r’s consist entirely of Ridata and Smartbuy.
I recieved the new unit yesterday, new Bios was 0D w/Mar.'06 Manufacture date.
The new player played All my Smartbuy media, some from several years back. Just did a random pick of several older titles.
But would not play ANY of my Ridata dvd-r’s…
With the older unit directly underneath I was able to put them in and watch them play perfectly.
My only guess is either the “new” 0D bios has changed something, OR I happened to get a faulty player.
I’m in the process of getting an RA # and have a another new player on it’s way.
Anyone else run into this issue?
I’ll post more info when I get the new player, just thought I’d toss this out to the great community here
There’s no way to flash this type of player to an older bios is there? Looked for some info on that but came up empty heh
I’m crossing my fingers on this next unit
edit - All dvd’s were burned with the Nero 6 at 4x speed. With a Lite-On dvd burner (i’ll get the modle # when I get home)
I’ll also get the media codes for the discs
