Liteon LVW-5005 firmware to fix 16x DVD-/+ not reading

Hi all.
I hope I’m in the right forum for this question?
I have a Liteon LVW-5005 DVD recorder that currently has Firmware version B20B, and the info on the setup screen is: S/N: 1840-0098-B208(105-101D), and the DVD unit itself is model # DDW-813S01C manufactured in June 2005.
It was working fine when I used 8x DVD blanks but now I am trying to use 16X blanks and it gives me an Invalid disk error message. Is there a firmware update to allow this recorder to read and record 16x disks and if there is - where do I download it and how do I go about flashing it properly as the slower speed blanks are very hard to find these days?
Any help would be appreciated!:doh:

Their is a firmware update released on 03/29/2006 but it doesn’t seem to be accessible via LiteONs site they link to

But its down unfortunately. A firmware upgrade will most likely fix this problem from what i have seen on forums but that’s if you can find it.

Also what region of the World are you in UK / Europe or USA.
