Hi,
i have a DVDR824P model with the firmware P2.2.
I can write +R/+RW and -R/-RW dvd but with the -R/-RW i have problems.

Bye

Hi!

This firmware should work. I also had the same firmware (P2.2) and upgraded to the one you mentioned (P3.3)

But under windows your dvd-rewriter is the DVDR824P or you have the new model DVDR824DP?

My model is the DVDR824K/20 and the firmware is for the DVDR824K/40…there are hardware’s difference between the two models?

Hi!

This firmware should work for you. My drive was called “DVDR824P” (FW P2.2)before I flashed" too. Afterwards the name was “DVDR824DP” (FW P3.3).

If this firmware wasn’t meant for your drive, it wouldn’t let you flash.

Normally, you can’t do anything wrong.

P.S.: My english is also not too good. I’m german.

Looks like they moved the file… go to
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpproduct_selector.pl?slg=ENG
then type in DVDRW824K and from there go to the page of your model and look in the ‘software’ section. K/20 and K/40 actually share the same firmware though (files are equal). K/00 has a different one (probably the +R/W only firmware).

According to another thread someone has flashed the K/20-K/40 firmware to a K/00 and it worked:

but I suppose you do it at your own risk.
