Hi. I’m having trouble reading Burned DVDs. It will read the disc and after 5 minutes, display contents. If I try to open an exe it will say it is not a valid 32 bit application or if I try to copy any files to the HD some will come up with redundancy errors but its always consistent for each file whether it will copy or not. None of these discs are scratched and all Memorex DVD+R.
So I thought I would try upgrading the firmware. I have tryed every firmare from Codeguy, the official one from LiteOn and everytime I get “Unable to flash firmware. Please contact with your vendor !”. I have also tryed Flash Utility to try to Read the current firmware off the drive and I get an error that it is unable to read it. I was wondering if maybe the drive is locked somehow, something I should change in BIOs or a problem with NVIDIA IDE drivers. I checked Device Manager under IDE controllers and it shows the generic IDE drivers and 2 NVIDIA SATA drivers and I dunno if thats gonna conflict eventhough I dont have any sata drives installed.
Thanks for any help. I hope its an easy fix to update the firmware and hopefully it will resolve my primary issue.
