Hey guys the only ide channel i have on my motherboard has a Jmicron chipset and i tried using the original Pioneer flasher, but it keeps saying “device not found” and will not let me flash. I tried using DVRFlash but it doesn’t support the 111D. Any suggestions?
Try to put Nero wnaspi32.dll in the same directory as the flasher…
Perhaps you are mixing 111 and 111D firmware?
Can you post the information output by DVRFLASH -v
DVRFlash v2.2 : Pioneer DVR firmware flasher
by Agent Smith, et al., November 2005
Device parameter was not given, detecting all DVR drives:
Device : 4.0.0 Vendor : PIONEER Model : DVD-RW DVR-111D Revision : 1.23 Status : RPC-2 (region locked) Region : 1 Changes : 4 region changes remaining 4 vendor resets remaining state is 'Region set' Device : D: Vendor : PIONEER Model : DVD-RW DVR-111D Revision : 1.23 Status : RPC-2 (region locked) Region : 1 Changes : 4 region changes remaining 4 vendor resets remaining state is 'Region set'
Now run DVRFlash again, from the command prompt, using
one of the device(s) listed above as first parameter
Press the Return key to exit
A0812001.129 is the firmware and the wnaspi.dll from the nero didn’t work either
The problem is your ide conx/chipset, indeed.
Try in SAFE MODE and also in REAL DOS, it might help.
From which package have you got this firmware?
i got the firmware from pioneer’s site. i gotta try safe mode. i tried ms-dos with no luck
Perhaps we were thinking of DVRFlash -v X: where X is the drive letter for the drive. We are trying to get it to display some of the OEM details, because at the moment it looks like that might be the problem, as the files you mention seem valid.
We can probably build the stock firmware into one of our flashers if need be. Drop us an email at email@example.com if you want to persue this.
DVRFlash -v D:
Description : PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-111D

The PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-111D is not supported by this utility - Aborting
Stock firmware bound in our Windows flasher.
If it doesn’t see the drive, the WNASPI32.DLL trick might be applicable.
great! works! thanks a lot!
