Firmware upgrade for K16

I’m trying to upgrade the firmware of my burner in the hope that it will burn a particular brand of DL discs. Current version is 1.15. I downloaded the latest version from the pioneer site, but it will not install, it gives me an error of “Target Not Found”. Does anyone have any ideas how to get round this? The burner is in a Compaq Presario V5000 running XP. Thank you!

@ jscho84233,

Welcome to the Forum.

Suggest trying The Dangerous Brothers (TDB) DVR-K16 Firmware version 1.44 ->

Also suggest saving yourself some grief with DVD DL Media. The only DL Media that consistently produces quality error free results is Verbatim DVD DL MKM001/MKM003 Mitsubishi Kagaku Media. All other DVD DL Media is considered suspect and should be avoided.

bjkg,

Thanks so much for that info! Sucessfully flashed my drive. The media I have still doesn’t work though! :sad: I will bear your comment about DL media in mind next time I’m buying DL discs! I thought DL discs were DL discs and manufacturer didn’t matter. how naive am I? Thanks again!
