After browsing this forum, it became clear that the dwu18a I purchased last weekend is really a liteon 812S. So I went to
liteon’s website ( http://www.liteonamericas.com/us/download.htm ) and
downloaded the firmware upgrade for the 812S. After
running the upgrade software, I get the following message:
No Matched drive detected !
This utility is only for the LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-812S drive.
Detected drives 1-0-0-0 K:SONY DVD RW DW-U18A UYS1
So wazzup? Any help would be appreciated… The first DVD
butnt using this drive isn’t working so hot. Getting crc errors
on certain files, so I’m thinking a firmware upgrade is in order.
