LG CD-RW CED-8080B 1.08 broken up?

after upgrading the firmware in my old CED-8080B from 1.06 to 1.08 i noticed that the green LED is lighting all the time, no matter what i do (for these who don’t know : the drive has two LEDs - yellow for reading, green for writing). also, the drive cannot record in DAO and SAO mode. that’s something wrong with drive or firmware?
1.06 was working nice

The 1.08 firmware update was for certain OEM based LG CED-8080B drives only. same with firmware version 1.07 which was for LG CED-8080B drives pre-installed on Dell PCs.

go back to firmware 1.06 by reflashing it and see if it works again.

since I’ve updated the LG CED-8080B drive from 1.05 to 1.06 on my cousin’s eMachine eTower PC, I’m not going to bother updating it to 1.08 if that firmware has problems.

Thanx! I Just downloaded the file from LG site and reflash it! Now is working like when I bought it!

Although now my cousin has recently gave his computer to me, I have removed the CED-8080B cd-rw drive from the eMachine PC and placed it into the Dell Optiplex PC my aunt is using. I’ll get the v1.07 firmware update from the Dell site and update the LG CED-8080B drive to v1.07 on the Dell computer.

I’ll still stay away from firmware v1.08.
