I have been trying to upgrade the firmware on this ‘Digital Max/Lite-on’ DVD drive but so far all the .exe flash upgrades says it can’t see the drive.
I think I can do it with EEPROM_Utility.exe if I can get my hands on the BSG5 bin file. I tried doing a ‘default’ flash upgrade on it but the drives indicator started blinking non-stop so I flashed the original bin file back to the drive.
Ultimately what I am hoping to achieve is for the drive to recognize and let me use this Dynex DVD +R DL media I have. So far when I put this media in the drive and run up any of my favorite burning software the computer locks up when it is trying to read the book type.
Anyway, I am hoping for helpful suggestions or a link to the bin file that would be the best choice.
As you can see below the eprom utility sees the drive and like I said I have been flashing it with that but I can’t find the bin file that would be the best choice.
I also tried flashing some 1653S.CSOT bin files like ‘Cs09.bin’ but it give me the same message as my first image above.
I have even unplugged the drive from my Promise Ultra 66 card and plugged it straight into the IDE connector on the mainboard with the same results.
Thanks everyone for your time…
