Hi all!
Need help with a tricky problem. My Plextor will not read old DVD´s after firmware upgrade to 1.06.

Plextools doesn´t show whitch upgrade I have and PX Info tells me that DMA is no longer in use!?

Can I go back to firmware 1.04?

I´m using NERO 6.3.1.6 and PowerDVD to watch the movies.

Can I go back to firmware 1.04?

Let’s take a peek at their website , where we read the following :

Notification: After upgrading to version V1.02, it will be impossible to install a lower version of firmware in this drive.
.

So it should be possible to go back to 1.04.

Mr. Belvedere
Yes, I read that it wouldn´t work with an earlier firmware, but You tell me that it is safe to go back to 1.04 from 1.06.

The burner doesn´t take any damage by doing that? I´m using the Self-Extracting Firmware Files.

No problem there mate :slight_smile:

I dont recommend it though cause with newer firmware comes beter media compatability and bug fixes - plus i sincerely doubt it that your DMA problem is in any way related with the 1.06 fw upgrade.

You are right. It wasn´t.
It was a bad installation off nVidia BUS-driver.
