DVDRW DRW-6S160P 'Illegal Disc'

I’ve searched the forums already but seem to find no positive answer, or the answers don’t work. Here is my error log, its giving me the error message of ‘illegal disc’. Now a few days ago i upgraded to a 64bit processor and under 32 bit it worked fine. I install 64 bit windows and suddenly i get this error message. DVD decrypter also gave me the same ‘illegal disc’ message. I can’t find a firmware for my drive!!! I did burn a memorex DVD+RW fine a day or so ago but my DVD-R’s just arent working. My DMA is on and I’m just close to kicking the crap out of my tower!!! :frowning:

I deleted my old Nero removing EVERYTHING and then installed this new version (7.5.1.1 i believe) and it gives me the same error message!!! :sad: :sad: :sad:

Stay away from RITEKG05.
It has bad degradation problems.

You may wish to try some high quality media like Taiyo Yuden. :slight_smile:

There is updated firmware for your DRW-6S160P, which is a LiteOn SHW-160P6S. You may wish to upgrade your FW too.

I tried the SHW-160P6S firmware but it stops and says its the wrong drive.

Yep, steer clear of the Ritek G05 - and you might like to temporarily uninstall your virtual drive software for troubleshooting purposes. :wink:

LOL the problem is ive got a spindle of 40 odd bloody Ritek’s now!!! :sad:

Had to install that drive to install Nero to try and get it to work :stuck_out_tongue: But i’ve disabled it anyway, dont use it often. What brands r good to go for then?

And anyone know about the firmware and how to get it to work?

Verbatim, and Tiayo Yuden made discs if you can shop online. :slight_smile:

No idea about the firmware, sorry…all my LiteOn drives have worked with the regular LO firmware.

There are others who’ll know though, so give it awhile and I’m sure someone’ll stop by with some info :wink:

I have the same drive and flashed over to the Lite On firmware. you need the flashfixed version of the latest firmware for it to work. Check the new firmware annoucements thread.

borak, you didn’t upgrade quite far enough with Nero. Try 7.5.9.0A.

Hi, just bought a different brand, TTH01 i believe is the model number and from what ive seen on the net these should be good enough. But still getting the illegal disc error. Downloading the latest Nero as we speak so we’ll see what this offers but still no luck finding firmware!!!

TTH01 (TDK 8x DVD-R) is good media. Not as good as Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden maybe but it is good for everyday use.
Maybe a flashfixed firmware can help. I’ll post another reply when I’ll have found it.
