When I first got the drive the 1.14 hacked firmware was available for this drive so I upgraded. Things were going fine. Today I moved it to a new machine and decided to see if there were any firmware upgrades.
This is where it gets confusing, I’m not sure of the order of things, but I went from 1.18 to 1.10 to…well I tried a whole bunch of firmware’s and they all now produce the same thing, an unusable drive.
I am still able to flash, but nothing I do makes the drive usable.
The drive is a true DVR-108DX (printed on the sticker, but it says it was made by pioneer).
So, which versions of the kernel/firmware do I need to make this thing work again?
Oh, some additional info, not sure if it matters:
I’m running Windows 2k.
When I put a disk in, it looks like it’s reading it. After the light stays solid for a few seconds it then flashes, slowly for another 10 seconds and then stops.
And here is the output when I run dvrflash:
Device parameter was not given, detecting all DVR drives:
Device : D: Vendor : PIODATA Model : DVD-RW DVR-108DX Revision : 1.10 Status : RPC-2 (region locked) Region : none Changes : 5 region changes remaining 4 vendor resets remaining state is 'Region not set'
Thanks in advance!
