Ok 1st thing is first ! give me your email address and il send the following

Mtkflash.exe
Zs0J.bin
Text.file with instructions ! SO YOU DONT DO ENYTHING WRONG :smiley:

Ok the post your regarding was my stupidity lol
i thought i damaged my burner but i did do the flash ok :slight_smile:
the problems i was getting was due to bad media i was useing !
i can burn at 4x - 32x with out errors :smiley: but i do get errors burning at 40x + and beyond :slight_smile:
so all the problems i was getting was due to incomatable media

Ok do the following !

put mtkflash & Zs0J.bin on your C:/ or what ever drive you os is on !

the restart you system boot into dos with a floppy disk and then dont select load cdrom drivers go into dos with out your cdrom drivers

then when your into dos do the following !

C:/ <<<then Press enter

dir <<< then Press enter

mtkflash x r /b /m WSO3.bin <<< then press enter

that will WRITE a new bin file on your c drive KEEP THAT firmware thats your original for flashing back purposes

then do the following

=========================================

mtkflash x w /b ZS0J.bin

it will go through this procedure

bank0 ok
bank1 ok

through to

bank6 ok

Updateing…

Please reboot…

============================================

thats it your sorted now after your reboot windows will find your new drive :slight_smile:

i need you remail address to post all above to you !..

heya virus2k
could you please send me the zs0j.bin file to my email at dcourtne@bigpond.net.au thanks

also just checking this will work I have a liteon 32125w model which i’ve overclocked to 48x using the vs02.bin file. My media only supports 40x so I was thinking of using the zs0j.bin file to go back to a 40x drive. Is this all correct? thanks again

regards slayer

right ViRuS2k I have some results for you!!..with the zs0j firmware I seem to be getting a few yellow sectors at the end of my burns using prodisc, emtec and verbatim discs (using the scandisc on nero cdspeed) also using the cd quality check I get between 200 and 300 errors (0.00%) and a small but consistant dip in the read graph using my ltd163 dvd drive…its always above 50mins and occurs at 24x,32x and 40x…with the original ws03 firmware I lose the rainier support but also dont have these errors!! I have written 3 discs within the last hour with ws03 firmware (all around 700mb) with zero errors using the prodisc’s at 40x, my dvd drive reads them at 34x with no dips in the graph, all green on the scandisc…mmmmmmmmm I dont know whether the zs0j really is better tweaked for media, my ws03 has the edge on my setup…we need more results posted in this thread from 40x liteon owners using both firmwares…davros

P.S. I have noticed on the discs that have errors and slowdowns that they have ‘rings’ on the written surface similar to z-clv written disc’s whereas the ‘good’ burns are ‘ring free’ I watch the LED on the drive to see if it turned orange at anytime during the burns which would indicate the smart burn underun working but it didnt and I burned 702mb in 3.12, I need more discs to test for this…
