Let start with the facts - I am an idiot who tinkers with thing that I know nothing about!
I got this drive and installed it on my very old pc P3 600MHz on XP pro. Took a chance that it might work - even if i turned the speed right down.
I did sucessfully back up 20 Gb of pics and mp3 onto 5 DVD’s
I then got ambitious and decided to try and learn how to “back-up” movies. After playing with DVD Decrypter, Clone and some Region Free software, I ended up doing something to the firmware with RPCDE2?
Then it all went wrong. I couln’t read any discs at all. The Lite-On firmware update returned an error.
I have managed to flash the firmware with MKTFLASH and now have YSOV firmware on it from the lite-on site.
Still cant read any discs and have a continual green flashing light. The drive seams to think it is empty all the time?
Nero Tools tells me it is RPC1, but changes left by user and vendor are both “n/a”. In Drive properties the region is set to 2 (UK) with 1 user change remaining.
The drive is on secondary ide as slave - but behaves the same on master.
Any help much appreciated - even if it is bin it and buy a new one!
