I’ve upgraded my LiteOn LDW-851SX to GS0P firmware. I’ve been trying to record on 16X DVD+R. HELP!!!

Welcome :slight_smile:
Please read the posting guidelines on top of the thread list. It would help if you tell us what your problem is :slight_smile:
Use DVDIdentifier and post the media code of your 16x disk, which probably is not supported by GS0P.

I got this from the ‘Media Code’ Block tab. Thank you very much for your help!

I’m new at this. I read the forum about the MediaCodeSpeedEdit. I really need your help. Thanks.


#5

You can’t upgrade a 851SX to a 1653S. Different hardware.

Read here http://codeguys.rpc1.org/oc.html

I’m wrong. Mixed with CS0P.


#6

???
I’m sorry! I’m totally new at this. I’m confused by your comments. I got the upgrade firmware from LiteOnIt website. If you don’t mind, can you explain your comments. Where did you get 1653S from? Thanks.


#7

The easiest way to get 8x write support on PHILIPS.C16 media is to crossflash your 851 drive with this 832 VS0G firmware already modified for crossflashing. Simply unpack the rar archive and start the flasher. This will void you warranty.
For savety reasons you should backup your drives eeprom before flashing using the eeprom utility.


#8

I mixed 851S firmware GS0P and a 1653S firmware CS0P.

Do as ala42 posted.

Sorry I confused you.


#9

I give it this a try. Thank you ala42 and jby for all your help. I will let you know if it works.


#10

My burner is making a buzzing sound every time it burns a DVD and the writing process fails.


#11

Looks like it is time that you exactly describe what your problem is, when it started, what works and what does not work, how it is connected and such stuff.


#12

I followed your instructions, downloaded the firmware from the link above. The 832 VS0G.exe was corrupted when I extracted it. So, I went to codeguys.rp1c.org and found the link and downloaded it. No files corrupted there. Then, I updated the firmware with 832 VS0G that I just extracted. Then reboot my computer. I loaded MediaCodeSpeedEdit and inserted the 16X DVD+R in the burner and found that the media code is supported there. I did a test to burn a DVD movie to see if it works. I use DVD X Copy Platinum. After the DVD movie has been read, the DVD burning process begins. The red light on the burner comes on. At the same time, it has this buzzing sound (like bees) and the disc loading fast and then slow repeatedly, on and off. Then the light turns green and ejects the disc saying disc read error.

Now, I’m trying Nero and it’s doing the same thing. There’s a red light at first, then maybe 10 minutes later, it’s now an orange light. It loads up and then slows down like drive going into idle mode and loads up.

My burner is connected to my laptop via usb 2.0.

The red light means the laser is in ‘burn’ mode…it is burning the disc. Orange means the drive is buffering or has stopped burning and is waiting for more data…a buffer underrun or something similar. Occasional orange flashes of a few seconds are OK during a burn, but longer ones means there is a problem, though the burn may finally complete. Green means it is reading. Did the nero burn finish or fail? If failure, can you post the error log? Have you tried any other media? Can you use Kprobe 2.4.3 to test your burst rate? Under the ‘info’ tab, choose ‘drive’ and wait a few seconds and scroll down to the bottom and see what your burst rate is for your 851sx.

You can check also your burn results with Kprobe 2.4.3 BLER scans(scanned at 4x scan speed the forum standard for comparison). You can read Interpreting PI/PO error scans to find out what these graphs mean. PI/PO is now referred to as PI/PIF. Roughly, PImax<280; PIFmax<4. Attaching disc quality scans to your post of any bad discs will help us help you.

@ please
Yes the nero burn failed. Unfortunately, I did not save the error log. I just downloaded the Kprobe 2.4.3 and it did not find my LiteOn DVD RW drive. It only found my DVD-ROM on laptop. And my LiteOn drive is connected to my laptop.


#15

@ t0mt0mboy
in kprobe, under the ‘driver’ tab, choose ‘spti’. You should be able to see your liteon now.

You can also use nero to test burst rate speed. choose nero>toolkit>cd-dvdspeed’ then choose your liteon drive and under the ‘run test’ tab, choose ‘burst rate test’.

Please answer my questions :slight_smile:

I have read your last step before, but still do not know the history.
So once again: When did it start, what works and what does not work, how it is connected and such stuff. Did the drive ever work, using which media, can it read or write CDs.


#19

I’m sorry. This started about a few days ago. I bought some Memorex 16X DVD+R at BestBuy. I went to LiteOn website to update the firmware for my drive. It would not burn the discs. So, I followed your instructions from the beginning of this thread. The drive can stiil read DVDs, but write fails as mentioned above. Last night before any other upgrades, with GS0P firmware, I found a Pioneer DVD-R 1X-4X disc lying around. I gave it a test. I used DVDIdentify and MediaCodeSpeedEdit to verify the disc is supported. It pass. It burned. Then, I played it on the burner itself. It has problem reading. It skips or freezes from time to time. When I played on my DVD-Rom on my laptop. It’s skip free. Then, I played it on my DVD-player. It maybe gliched twice. I never had a problem with the drive before. The media I used before to burn movies is Verbatim DVD+R 8X. No problem at all. I couldn’t find the same discs as before. So, I got the Memorex 16X DVD+R bundle, which DVDIdentify found its media code to be Phillips C16.000. Is there anything else I can add that you need to know ala42? Thank you.

@ ala42
Do you have a solution or any idea what could be the problem? Thanks.
