Hi I’m really a newbie to all this so please bear with me if I ask some basic questions.
I recently picked up 2 100ea. spindles of Sony -R (made in Malaysia 16d1) blank DVDs at a yard sale ($5.00 for both!!!)
I think my Liteon doesn’t support this media type, I get the “Cannot write medium-incompatible format error”
I’d like to “add support” for this media.
In the “F.A.Q. for LiteOn Optical Drives” it says
“The best way to get a media support list is to backup your drive’s firmware to a file using LtnFW and then use OmniPatcher to extract the list of supported DVD media codes and their burn speeds.”
My first question is where do I “browse” for the bin file LtnFW asks for so I can backup my drive’s firmware before using OP?
More questions to follow.
