I have a Sony DW-Q30A, and it won't write or read

How would I flash it with lite-on SHW-160P65. I read some of sticky treads, but I’m still confused. I don’t want to ruin it. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile: !

That’s a LiteOn 1635S and you don’t want to flash it until you know it’s working as is. We’ll need some more background about your setup and problem if possible.

It is not working at all. The computer does recognize that is it their though.

I changed the firmware to liteon. It still doesn’t work. When I use a blank dvd, it says “incorrect function”.

A firmware flash, even more a crossflashing, can never ever fix such hardware issues!

Anyway, you MUST use a proper burning app for dvd media!
