I have a pioneer DVR-108. I am having trouble making it switch to DMA mode in device 1. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and all that good stuff to make it stay on DMA but it stays on PIO. As a result, it takes too long to burn disks, both CD and DVD. I am attempting to update the firmware to see if this could resolve it. However, I am unsure exactly how this is done. I have gone to the pioneer website and downloaded their official firmware. I saved it and tried to run their provided upgr108.exe. When I run it, I get a C:\ prompt window that says the following:
/// ODD Firmware Update Utility Ver2.23B
Available target is not found.
I also get a pop-up that says Available target is not found.
So I click OK and that is all that happens.
So instead of saving it, I try to run it directly from the website. It asks where to install it and I am not sure. Where exactly would the firmware be installed in order for the drive to update.
Thanks in advance for any help.
