This is a model 2500A that I succesfully flashed with herrie’s 2.16 (2510216.bin).
The drive is on second IDE, set as slave in BIOS - Cable Select on drive jumper. Plextor 712A DVD +/- RW is also on second IDE, Cable Select, set as master drive in BIOS.
The drive will read fine using DVDXCopy Platinum (last ripper version) or Nero 184.108.40.206.7.
Media is RICOHJPNR01 (+R, 4x)
The drive won’t write when it’s asked to. No error messages, just doesn’t respond to an introduced blank DVD, or any of the the software write commands. The software is not aknowledging the blank DVD at all.
System info software and windows see the firmware update. The drive was functioning just fine with the factory 1.07 firmware. Are there any other settings I need to tweak to fully enable herrie’s 2.16 FW?
Can anyone help?
