I’ve been having some problems with my Sony CRX 220E1 for awhile now. It has a tendancy to lock up in the middle of burning… didn’t used to have that problem, but rather than going through the trouble of getting a new one, I looked to the internet. Finding out that many people were having better success using the Lite-On firmware for the Sony drives, I figured I’d try that.
Well I got the v6S0A from this site, which was recommended by someone for this drive, and mtkwinflash, also from this site. When I booted up mtk, I at first tried the ATAPI part of the program. This just sat in an endless screen of querying and then had no drives for me to select. So I went back and selected the IDE part of the program. My IDE configuration is something like this:
Primary IDE: 2 hard drives
Master - Pioneer DVD-ROM 105
Slave - Sony CDRW CRX220E1
(actually the jumper settings are on channel select)
So I selected to flash to the Secondary Slave. Well right when the program started, it gave some error, then MTKFlash crashed. I don’t think it even started flashing the BIOS.
The drives still show up in the BIOS, but not in Windows. Under Device Manager, both drives are listed as disabled. Where did I screw up?
And more importantly, PLEASE tell me how I can at least get functionality of my drives back??
Thanks, and Merry Christmas to everyone!
