I have an old “Go-Video” standalone DVD Recorder and recently discovered that it has an IDE/ATAPI DVD drive installed. The machine refuses to recognize any type of newer media to record on, however will read any disc that has been recorded to by another means.
The drive’s ID (when it was connected to my PC) is: “RW5240V24M Ldr”. A little research tells me that this might be an OEM Ricoh RW5420, but any type of flasher or loader will not even touch it.
Anyone have a patched version of any kind of firmware that will load onto this drive? the machine itself is currently open and has a Liteon 812@832 in it but the tray doesn’t line up with the opening in front.
