Help! I think I`ve Killed My Sony!

becouse i am all my drives are NTFS I had to make a small fat partition, so it is easy to check, there are only 5 files in it, 4 bin files and Mtkflash, I have checked that all files are visible. Would it be worth putting “mtkflash.typ” in this drive and see what happens.

Thanks Andy

That’s what dhc014 was suggesting.

This is the method I would use:
1/ Create a bootable dos disk. Remove all files except command.com, io.sys and msdos.sys (the system ones)
2/ Download mtkflash 1.80 from here (must be 1.80)
3/ Add MTKFlash.exe to the disk.
4/ Add pds3.bin to the disk. Any valid firmware bin file will do.
5/ Boot the system, to the floppy.
6/ Type in MTKFlash 3 w /b /m pds3.bin. The 3 is secondary master.

Thankyou

I have followed your instructions to the letter, I am no getting the following:

A:>mtkflash 3 w /b /m pds3.bin
MTKFASH by Joseph Lin, MTK 1998 (Ver 1.80)

I have left this for over a half hour and it did not change rebboted machine and XP boots up but still no DVD Drive.

What should I see on screen if it works

Andy

Try your luck with V 1.83c and use
mtkflash C
to scan the ide bus for drives.

Thanks for the reply, Please find results below.

[B]Port: 1f0, Master/Slave: a0

ManuID : bf ManuID : ff bDevID : d8

Flash Type : “SST(SST39LF/VF080) (+3.3V)”

>>> Please REBOOT your PC ![/B]

Excuse my ignorance, but this is complete gobaldygook to me.
can anyone enlighten me please.

Thanks again

Andy :confused:

Port: 1f0 is the hardware address of the primary IDE port, so you should try ‘2’ to access your burner instead of ‘3’ in the mtkflash call to access the slave on the primary port.

No Joy

[B]Port: 1f0, Master/slave : b0

ERR :fail to initial IDE port, Please reboot PC![/B]

So Port: 1f0, Master/Slave: a0 ment primary port, master.
Check in the device manager if your hard disk is connected to the primary or secondary ide port and also check the addresses of these ports. You will find the addresses in the resources tab of the primary and secondary ide controller. Usually the HD is the master on the primary at address $1f0, the burner should be master on the secondary at $170.
Either this is different on your notebook or mtkflash displayed the only device it could find.

Hello,

I’m have the same problem cept mine is in a mini tower. I’m going to try the tips given here and let you know what happens.

Thank you guys. After nearly an hour of trying to get it to flash it finally did it. It’s back to “normal”. I’m using the older Sony driver btw. When I put in a blank DVD, my drive finally read it. Here’s the problem, I used Nero(updated as of today) and I’m hearing a grinding type of sound coming from the drive when I use DVDs. I’m using Maxell 4.7 DVD+R disk. I had an extra Verbatim DVD+RW and I still heard the grinding noise with that as well. The exception is it finally burned to the RW after a while. I’m trying the burn the same files to the Maxell disk which Nero saw. I’m at the burning screen and all I’m hearing is the grinding noise. I tried the other firmware in the other post, but I still had that grinding noise and it didn’t recognize the Maxell disk. Is it a hardware problem or will the right firmware fix this?

AT Last

It worked on IDE1 Primary.

Thanks Guys

Andy

Nice :). Could you specify how HD and burner are connected in your notebook (primary/secondary, master/slave)?

Hi Info below, I am back to where I started, can`t read most disks.

Thanks for all the help.

You have to supply more details on your problem.

OK bought the laptop brand new just before christmas, and the drive worked fine,it came pre-installed with XP Pro and lots of software that I did`nt want, rather than try to uninstall all the spurious software I decided to format the drive and start again, reloaded xp pro (the DVD drive booted the machine up from the setup disk, which it wont do now) from then on the drive wont read most of my disks the exception seems to be home made DVD, I have tried lots of firmwares, PDS3, QDS1, PST3 and now PRS7, I have spoke to the company who made the machines helpo desk and asked if there was any special settings in xp to make the drive work, they said there was not and they have never heard of anything similar, they suggested I re- install xp, but the machine wont boot of the dvd drive now.

the machine is the Ti model @ www.rockdirect.com

Thanks

Andy

To get that DVD booting again check the BIOS boot option setting. If they are still on cd boot, try your luck with installing the firmware revision your drive came with. Assuming that you do not know this revision number, see if you can find a log file of your burning software. Nero logs such data in the NeroHistory.log file in the nero program directory.

I found a thread in another forum that might be helpful!

I got a Dell Inspiron 8600 with the Sony DW-D56A Drive and I had problems with all versions of MTKflash and MTKwinflash too.
Both tools produced errors during the firmware update and soon I messed up all my drives! :wink:

Then I found these Things:

this is the flasher that worked properly! Description: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=83294

Some Firmwares that might support Dual Layer burning on DW-D56A (makes it a slimline drive):

http://dhc014.rpc1.org/Files/DVDR/Slimtype/SOSW-852S_PST3b.zip

The original Firmware:
http://dhc014.rpc1.org/Files/DVDR/Slimtype/DW-D56A_PFS1b.zip

And the firmware for the DW-R56A:
http://dhc014.rpc1.org/Files/DVDR/Slimtype/DW-R56A_QDS1b.zip

You need to load the binaries with the Omnipatcher, downloadable at:

http://codeguys.rpc1.org/patchers/dvdrw_omnipatcher-1.3.14.rar

and enable the checkbox: [v]Fix the “dead drive blink” / Enable cross-flashing
Now save the binary to a new file e.g. pst3p.bin (pst3 patched) and exit the Omnipatcher.

Open the firmware.exe, choose your Drive and enable following: UPDATE and UPDATE BOOT CODE, now flash it!

Hope this helps :wink:

Hello,
First I excuse if this is not the right place for my question!
So… here is the problem!
I have Sony DW-D22A, today i’ve learned that he is Lite On 1633S.
I bought this burner a 2 monts ago and until today I preinstalled my XP 3 times!

  1. Sony burns cd data/audio for almost 1 hour at 16x or 24x speed with Nero 6.3.1.25, dvd - more than hour! Disaster… (Verbatim, Traxdata, Ridata media)
  2. Installed Nero 6.6.xxx don’t remember - at 100% burning I get message “Could not perform end track!” And another dvd for garbage… (Verbatim, Traxdata)
  3. I insert original DVD/Audio or burned disks and File Explorer shows them blank! If I start PwerDVD and push “Play” - it works!
    Before I have Sony CD-RW 48x and flash the firmware to 52x - tnaks to this forum! and i decide to chek could i fix some problems again!
    Now I have “Dead Drive Blinking” yeahh… LOL :slight_smile:
    All afternoon i read about guys with same problem, trying to recover but - nothing work for me!
    I flashed with firmware for 720A - JY02, no Omnipatch needed. Reboot and “green light blink” is the result. In motherboard BIOS is recognized as 720A, but windows cant’t. Eject button works. MtkWinFlash 1536 and MtkWinFlash 1535 says “ERR: fail to identify the flash type!”. DOS flasher mtkflash183c, mtkflash180, mtkflash165, mtkflash150 could not find the burner. For example mtkflash183c says: err:51 could be 70 or smotehing like that. Moved all over the IDE channles - master, slave - only the port displaying in the begining changing!
    On 2 PC’s the results are the same. ECS 848P-A Intel chipset, and ASUS P4P533 Intel chipset.
    Pressing the “Eject” button while booting - nope! Jumpering the 6 pins at left corner as somebody told (next to IDE cable is audio out and digital out - can’t understant exactly what pins that guy jumpered) - nope!
    Don’t know what to do! Any ideas?? I’m really stuck!
    10xz at advice!

reflash with an omnipatcher-fixed firmware.
