My father purchased this drive the other day as it was all he could get at short notice. It seems ok for dvd’s but has trouble recognizing several cdr’s we’ve tried. It came with f/w KL0M so I went to the Liteon global site and grabbed the newer KL0N which didn’t fix the problem, not that I expected it to with cdr’s anyway.
Do you think it’s worth trying a previous firmware? Problem is they don’t seem to list older firmwares on the download sites. Also the european site lists:
DR20KL0A.zip 06/28/2007 13:34:46
while the US site lists:
DR20KL05.zip 06/28/2007 13:34:46
and the global site has:
DR20KL0N.zip 06/28/2007 13:34:46
All different versions but with the same publish date. They don’t have a different firmware for different regions do they? Also, I would need to use a “third party” flasher to backflash, correct?
