Greetings! I am looking for some advice with my LTR 24102B and trying to solve an error. I have that CD-RW drive installed in a PowerMac G3, 500MHz, 768 MB RAM, System 8.6. I am using Toast Titanium 5.0.1 to burn my CDs.
I am getting an intermittent error that “The Connection Is Unstable” when burning audio discs. This happens in simulated mode as well as in real life. I have checked the ribbon cable inside the Mac and it is secure. It was suggested to me that I upgrade the firmware on the CD-RW.
Currently, my firmware version is 5S54. I have seen from previous posts on here that there is a 5S5A version. My questions:
â€¢ should I upgrade the firmware?
â€¢ is it a one-step from 5S54 to 5S5A, or is it incremental?
â€¢ is there a firmware flasher for Macs that I can download?
â€¢ will changing the firmware version do more harm than good; can I ruin my drive with this?
Any and all input would be greatly appreciated!
