Last week I upgraded the firmware on my Liteon LTR-40125S.
I then tried to burn some svcds with nero at 20x. Two came out with a hollow space unwritten to, in the centre of the discs. They were unreadable. I tried again and made another one. It worked. I thought it was a one off error.
I then burned some more svcds. All at 20x btw, and they all came out unreadable. I spent days pissing about with mpeg codecs, cos I thought they were to blame at first. Then I tried to copy a disc with clonecd. It did the same error, and was also burning at 20x. I tried it again at 10x. Oddly, it only wrote at around 8x, which it’s never done before when telling it to do 10x. This time the discs worked.
I went back to the liteon site to get the old firmware back, but it says that the firmware cannot be downgraded, plus there where no downloads for the older firmware. I know that it’s possible to get older firmware back on it, but the problem is actually finding the previous version. The new version was R40ZS0R. I have no idea what was already on the drive, but I hadn’t previously upgraded it.
Any suggestions? Please? Before I have to buy a new writer?
