#6

don’t you have a backup?
what discs are you using?


#7

no i didnt have a back up and im using datawrite yellow 8x


#8

but im lookin to get firmware hsg8 which i have downloaded but it wont let me install it now ???


#9

HS0R should be newer, as it’s directly from lite-on.

what mediacode do the discs have?


#10

when i put HS0R it said HSG1 was the newest firmware but i still installed it


#11

madiacode how do i find that out thanxs


#12

stansard, the flasher always sais this…

for the mediacode: start KProbe -> info -> disc

or: with nero info tool -> disc
download infotool here: http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroInfoTool_301.zip

blank dvd-r
layers 1
supp/ speeds 2.0x
4.38gb
man u idcmc mag. ae1
all the rest n/a


#14

but the disc says 8x ??? and ive had 4 x on other discs
and burned at 4x


#15

as you already said, supported speed is only 2x. you should get quality media for higher burnspeeds, like Verbatim.


#16

well why does it say 8x and it cant do it
i have been usin bulkpaq 4x without a problem and burnin at 4x


#17

so can i get back to HSG1 FIRMWARE SO I CAN UP GRADE TO HSG8 FIRMWARE


#18

hsg8 won’t help to solve this, hs0r is newer…

you need flashfix and the hsg8 flasher: http://digi.rpc1.org/flashfix.htm


#19

your drive is from 4kus which is a liteon OEM
and as chok0 said use the flashfix for the HSG8 then just run it
or just stay with HS0R


#20

so the drive actually is liteon and i stay with this firmware… so this is the best i can do …so i gotta look for better media … if yes … if so thanxs a lot for ur help guys
