[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On LVW-5005B DVD Recorder. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi everyone,
I have a Liteon 5005B DVD recorder.
For a while it's been misbehaving, discs failing etc when the discs work fine in other dvd recorders. So I did a search on google and read of similar problems on the various forums, though this seems like the best forum hence I've joined.
From what I read it seemed like drive failure was common and that the drive would need replacing. So I took one from my computer (a LG HL-DT-ST GSA-H10A burner) and put that in my dvd recorder. I downloaded the firmware first though and tried to use that MCSE program to make the firmware "RPC1" but the option was greyed out. So I did a search and found the correct firmware that had already been modified for RPC1. Reconnected the drive to my dvd recorder but it still won't play region 1 dvds.
Just wondering if anyone can help please?
Oh, a while back I updated the DVD recorder's own firmware to make it region free and remove the macrovision thingy, not sure if that makes any difference.
