I’m sure this has been covered somewhere, but my searches did not find what I needed. I can’t seem to burn a CD that my 5005 will read to update the firmware.
Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong. Here is what I have tried.
1). Download the appropriate FW from the Liteon site and unzip it.
2). Launch Nero (I use version 188.8.131.52 Nero Burning ROM).
3). Select New CD-ROM (ISO)
4). Under the ISO tab only the following are selected:ISO 9660, Mode 1, ISO Level 1.
5). Under BURN tab “Write” is selected. Finalize CD is not selected (Should it be?)
6). Under Multisession tab - “Start Multisession disk” is selected. (Should it be “No Multisession” instead?)
7). I click on new, find the unzipped file and drag it over to ISO1 CD icon.
8). Place a blank CD in the drive, Select File|Write CD, and then click on the “Write” button.
The CD burns, I place it in the 5005. Turn power off, turn power back on, it finds a data disk, but it opens the tray and I never get the “firmware update” menu selections. Sometimes I get a “square block” in the left hand side of the display after it finds a data disk.
I have double checked my serial number and have made four different disks from new downloads from Liteon. I was concerned that the original download may have been corrupted or something.
I would appreciate any advice as I want to eventually install hacked firmware so I can get 3 hr mode and MV protection removed. But until I’m sure I can get the firmware upgraded safely, I don’t want to try ILO Hacker.
Thanks for any advice.
