That’s the right procedure right? Convert Memorex to a LiteOn 48-24-48, and then from there you can go up to a LiteOn 52-24-52.
What are the official steps?
So I’ve got this Memorex 48-24-48.
Installed the drive, and Nero 22.214.171.124 (i think), ran Nero’s Speed, it said 48MAXX. So all is good.
Here is where I need help. I too have a Memorex 48-24-48. I made a bootable Win98 floppy, copied both the mtkflash and 6S02.ace files you linkified above. Not knowing much about mtkflash, but being a software developer, I ran the following to try to first backup my flash:
mtkflash 3 R poop
A file was created named “poop” whose size was slightly larger than the 6S02.ace file I have. So I’m thinking I have a good backup.
I then try to update the flash. First run failed I believe because i didn’t include the /B flag:
mtkflash 3 W /B 6S02.ACE
It ran fine, doing an update on 2 banks (whatever that is).
When I reboot, no errors, but the drive is not recognized. Furthermore, running Nero’s CD Speed gives the following error:
Unable to initialize WNASPI32.dll
I thought ‘ok’, i ca hunt one down off the web, place it, and register it… but turns out there is already one there under /system. Again, this is a Win98SE box.
Lastly, I tried to reset the unit back to stock by rewriting the flash with the “poop” file I made earlier. Interesting, only 1 bank was written, but it ran without error. Rebooting still results in drive not recognized.
Hopefully I’ve given enough detail. Any ideas? Linkify files if I need to go get them.
