[QUOTE=KTL;1968206]No, bitsetting only changes the +R/+RW to -ROM. If you want to flash OEM G170A firmwares, you don’t need to go into Safe and PIO modes, only if you want to flash 7170A firmwares.
Do you have any conflicting software that could prevent the drive from recognizing the discs?[/QUOTE]
