I updated the firmware on my LITE-ON LTR-52327S. This was a terrible mistake. It is now much slower and pickier about the cds it will read. I will not even read many of the cds it burned. I would like to rollback the firmware. If you people cannot help me this drive is going in the trash and I will never purchase lite-on again. It’s a shame they used to be an awsome company. I am really frustrated i need this for a project.
any1 know where i can get the old firmware im going insane. I have to put the cd in like 30 times before it even recognizes there’s a cd in there wtf It worked perfectly before the firmware “update”
Perhaps the drive thought it was time to die. It IS an old drive.
Google for CD-R Server.
Firmware update doesn’t usually cause a drive to burn slowly (to a death), check your DMA settings.
If you know the previous version, you might find it at http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&sa=X&oi=spell&resnum=0&ct=result&cd=1&q=LITE+ON+LTR-52327S+firmware&spell=1.
Its not dead. It burns at normal speed and no problems. It’s the cd reading that went down the drain after the firmware update. It wont read 40% of cds i put into it anymore and the ones it does read it takes it like a minute to recognize there’s anything in there, it used to be instantly, and rarely that i would put a cd in that it wouldn’t read.
The reason I was even using this ancient piece of hardware is because my LG dvd burner reads cds very slow and wont recognize them half the time. but now my lite-on drive is doing it too.
It is not the cd either, I can put it into my ancient 52x cd reader from 2002 and it will recognize the cd almost instantly. Its too bad I have to open it with a paper clip every time.
