LITE-ON JLMS XJHD166s Problems~ Help please!

Hi,

I have a make LITEON JLMSXJHD166S. It now been locked at a region and I don’t have any more region tries( all 5 out). Now I need to make it region free, I tried DVD region Killer but I think It needs a Firmware upgrade before I do. I think it has the D1 firmware( December 2004) ,

another Problem is That it cant read some DVD’s (Mostly backed up DVD’s)
How can I fix this DVD read problem? any frimware or stuff?

thanx

Hi,

try either Kprobe or LtnRPC. Both are able to handle region codes of Liteon drives. No other firmware is needed.

If you want newer firmware, please check http://digi.rpc1.org Note that there are many OEM versions of that drive available, that cannot be flashed with unpatched Liteon orignal firmware.

Concerning the reading problem: Maybe it is time to open the drive and clean the lens.

Thanx for the 2 softwares but It would be better if some one could give me a link to fix the problem / i mean a frimware upgrade…/

Hi,

you find the firmware via the link given in my previous post.:wink:
To solve your region problem, you need one of those softwares mentioned (Kprobe works better for me).

Umm…I just installed both but seems when I click play in power dvd ( when playing movies) it stopes…

Ok I just made it work out…Thanx so much…Can any one help me with the read errors of The drive? some times it says No Disk…

Try a disc cleaner, works magic sometimes.

@ sorbre,

It appears that your problem is possibly related to poor quality of the data recorded on your particular Recorded DVDs. Are you certain of the Quality of the Data of the Recorded DVDs that you are experiencing problems with?

Suggest using Nero CD-DVD Speed (http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroCDSpeed_4750.zip) and perform a Disc Quality Scan (http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=192563) of the particular Recorded DVDs to ensure that these particular Recorded DVDs do not contain Read/Write Errors that were induced during the recording process.

Well all are DVD 9 and actually i didn’t record em… They seem to run on ASUS and some other DVD players and also in all external DVD players but wont run on SONY or LITEON.

I think its the drives problem or something…

maybe any frimware/ software that may fix it?

More likely the person who recorded that DL media didnt record them properly or used cheap media.

I buyed it from a shop in ASIA ( bangladesh to be precise) Dont tell me about piracy. any way They are well labled and i m sure they sold many other copies of it…I took it back to the hop when they didnt work in first but they showed me they play well in 5 different dvd players,

Bottom line is Im sure its the drives reading problem, so if there was any way to fix the reading problems of Lite on XJHD166S i would be great full… :slight_smile:

@ sorbre,
Fully concur with Forum Member chef quoted assessment.

Once again strongly recommend using Nero CD-DVD Speed (http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroCDSpeed_4750.zip) and perform a Disc Quality Scan (http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=192563) of the particular Recorded DVDs to ensure that these particular Recorded DVDs do not contain Read/Write Errors that were induced during the recording process. That is the only way to definitively ensure these particular Recorded DVDs are free of Read/Write Errors. Just popping these particular Recorded DVDs in a Stand-Alone Desktop DVD playback device and seeing if they play doesn’t prove anything about the particular Recorded DVDs having any Read/Write Errors.

Stand-Alone Desktop DVD Playback Devices and Computer DVD Devices are two entirely different types of devices. They are designed differently and they function differently. Read/Write Errors that were induced during the recording process can easily cause havoc with computer DVD devices, which will prevent proper playback viewing.
