I am new to this forum and have searched for information regarding this problem but haven’t found any.
I have a Memorex L1 F16 which I found out through another forum and confirmed here is a rebadged LiteON 1633. I recently got a great deal on Memorex 16x DVD-Rs. I knew I couldn’t burn them at 16x but figured my burner would at least be able to burn them at 8x. WRONG. The burner doesn’t even recognize these discs even with the latest Memorex firmware, BWSE. Having read through these pages I see that I can change this burner’s firmware to make it a LiteON 1653. My questions are :
Does anyone know if I change the firmware to make the burner a “pseudo” 1653 will it recognize 16x DVD-Rs and will I then be able to burn them (I understand not at 16x)?
If I go through this process, do I first have to flash the EEPROM to change the drive from “Memorex” to “LiteON,” or can I just flash the firmware directly with this: 1653S.CS0P.patched-cf-mcled.exe?
TIA for the help.
