LITE-ON LTR-24102M Firmware Problem

Hello,

I have a dell with a LITE-ON LTR-24102M CD drive. I am trying to load the firmware from DELL (4ds3). I have followed their instruction to the letter but when I click on the exe file to run the firmware it just makes a small grey window. And nothing else happens…I have tried rebooting, re-uploading the software from Dell…same result. I am out of troubleshooting ideas and need help.

Q. Can I buy a new drive and put it into this DELL DIM 4500? Is these some proprietary Dell issues that wwill prevent me from doing so?

Try installing ForceASPI.

You should be able to replace the drive with any new one that you want to use.
