I have a LiteOn LVW-5101 DVD player/recorder that works just fine, except that the clock is fast. It gains 1-2 minutes of time per week, so in order to record movies or TV shows I must constantly reset the clock to the correct time.
Frankly, it’s kind of maddening. Seems like a digital clock would be a no-brainer in 2005.
I contacted LiteOn and they suggested updating the firmware, so I downloaded the firmware file from the LiteOn website. I then copied the files to a CD-ROM and named the disc Mediatek, just as their instructions said to do it, but the DVD player does not recognize the CD-ROM.
I tried copying the files to a CD-ROM on 3 separate occasions but still no luck–the player doesn’t recognize the Mediatek CD. I again contacted LiteOn with the results of my efforts but they have not replied.
Any ideas on the fast clock? Anyone else have a fast clock? And would the firmware fix that? If so, how do I get the DVD player to recognize the dang Mediatek CD-ROM?
I’m getting tired of resetting the clock every couple of days!!
Thanks for your help
