Strange problem. Ive bought 3 Liteon LTR-32123S 32x burners.
One labels as a LITEON from newegg. Two in Buslink boxes.
I kept two of them - the liteon and a buslink and gave the other
Now I noticed Liteon has strange firmware instructions where
they state DONT use the recent firmware unless you have
a specific firmware already on it.
Lets say I have X01 on my burner.
Theyll have X0A , X0B, X0D at their site for the same model
out at different times. You naturally assume that all the firmware
works with your mode since its under the 32123S category. But
they tell you NOT to flash a specific firmware unless you have
X01, X02 , X03 on it. Now I naturally assumed that this was kooky and just flashed the latest.
I havent seen anyone else warn against it. After doing it - both
the Liteon and Buslink work as expected.
EXCEPT one thing. They both cant burn SVCDs that can be read.
I have no idea if they did before because i didnt burn SVCDs before I flashed. Thats my question. Is it a firmware thing ?
Or is there a bug in the 32123S?
Because I just retested it and my new LTR-52xxxxx burns SVCds
and VCDs left and right on cheapo media that works on 3 different DVD players while I retested my 32123S again and once again it cant burn SVCDs or VCDs that can read by ANY DVD player.
Im going to test the last remaining 32123S later this week at someone elses house who hasnt flashed at all but was wondering if anyone else has a clue.
