Liteon 1693s error

vbimport

#1

my liteon 1693s’ LED at front panel is now always flashing (in green) as if it were busy analyzing a disc…no matter whether there is a disc inside or not…

and more importantly…the 1693s is unable to recognise ANY disc (DVD or CD)…meaning when i try to browse the drive in ‘my computer’, it would tell there is no disc inside (which is not true…)

so…wt problem would it probably be…? is my drive dying…?


#2

Did you flash the drive?
That symptom usually occurs after a bad flash…
I’ve never seen nor heard of drives act like that spontaneously.
(even drives that are worn out so they don’t recognize much media anymore…)

um…yesterday i used a RPC utility to reset the counts of region changing…
but evything was just fine right afterward…

and noticed this problem when i boot my PC. i tried to update the firmware and that was a “successful update” but it didnt help the situation…


#4

What RPC reset tool? Some of those are known to kill drives.

I bet you he used RPCDE or one of the older utils that worked on the 166S, but not on the newer burners…

He needs to go http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=83441#adv-eeprom and see if he can recover his eeprom. If he didn’t make a backup first, then…well…
