Upgraded to latest Herrir's firmware with DL bitsetting support, (shows 1.0.8), fine for a month. Now, it stuck after 25% to 40% burn, the writer doesn't respond(no light, and can't be opened). The writing software (Nero, Roxio) just stuck there, can't be killed in WinXP. I have to power off the PC to have that back. (Restart also fails.)
The writer has been working OK before, though even with the hacked firmware, it will fail some nice 4X (taiyo disks) at 8x. The disks I am using right now is Verbatim (MCC.003) 8x, and Fujifilm003 8x.
Anybody has a hint what might be wrong? Thanks a lot.
