I’ve done a search and browsed through the forums and come up dry so far. I’ve had a 5005XS and have been thouroughly pleased with it until today when I tried to do something simple like play a DVD. I’ve got a rented copy of “Memoires of a Geisha” which was not playing smoothly up to the point when it would not play at all. The disc is in mint condition (physically). I tried playing it in my picky Samsung player and it plays smooth as can be. While it is playing in the LiteOn I can hear the drive seeking a lot, particularily when playback becomes unstable. I have tried other purchased DVD’s, and they play fine, but I still hear the heavy seeking during playback.
On to the firmware question. I would like to flash the firmware before going back to the store about this player; other than this issue I am very happy with it (as a recording device). I downloaded the latest firmware from LiteOn and unzipped the file, but instead of the .iso image file I was expecting I got an .eso file. Do I just burn this file to CD as is and feed it to the player?
Thanks in advance for your help,
