Okay so this is odd. My DVDRW drive will not read any kind of disk. However, it seems to burn perfectly in WinXP Pro. I was pleasantely surprised to see that it wasn’t entiredly dead. Its a Dynex DVDRW 16X
Model Number: DX-DVDRW16
In “my computer”, it shows up as a CD-RW.
In the properties, it shows up as MITSUMI CR-48XCTE.
After reading through the forums I’ve discovered that it is actually a BTC 10161M drive. I downloaded new firmware for the BTC 1016M drive. I’m assuming that flashing the firmware will bring it back to life. However, I’ll need to crossflash it from mitsumi whatever to BTC and I don’t have any utility to help me out.
Note: I just got this drive from a woman who never opened the box.
There is no receipt etc…
Now that I’ve said all that, does anyone have any advice or who can show me to a helpful utility or website??
