Just bought a Liteon 811 (OEM version) with HGS1 firmware. I've been trying to update it to HSG8 using the official installer but I keep getting an error message saying I don't have that type of drive installed. I clearly do and XP and Ltnfw seems to recognise it OK (I've even backed up HSG1 OK). Also after the error message my drive disappears in XP until I reboot.
I have also tried flash fix but again the drive is not recognised and I lose total access to the drive again.
I'm trying to update as I have yet to successfully finalise/burn a DVD-R (Bulkpaq) using either Nero 6.3 or Record Now (although I have come closest with this when I tried to burn a dic full of MP3s).
Any ideas? I'm at the end of my tether with this!!
Thanks in advance,
