So I, being the genius that I am, decide that I will run the update and allow my DVD±RW drive to be “compatible with more typed of Blank DVD media”. This is an official “Dell sanctioned” update oh-by-the-way thank you.
I’m running an Inspiron 9300 on SVC pack 2 with a Sony DW-56A drive. Originally the drive was flashed with PDS3 firmware (or whatever the name is…) The update brings it to PDS7 and all of a sudden I find out that it will no longer recognize blank media of any kind, it just sits there spinning.
I found the older firmwares on this site:
Downloaded and re-flashed to PDS6. No luck. Re-flashed to PDS3. Still no luck.
So what I want to know here is what the heck do I do? This darn thing worked only 48 hours ago and since I ignored the “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” mantra, I’m screwed.
Any good suggestions here?
