i bought an NEC drive a few years back and it has been working great for me, it was currently in it’s 1.06 firmware and working nicely, out of no where doing my normal dvd thing, and various other things started to crash my computer(like backing up important movies, or even playing game). i found out my dvd drive had a firmware update to 1.07, so i updated, and it didnt fix a thing, i soon found out the problem was my mobo had an automatic overclock feature, turned it off, and everything was peachy…accept backing up my movies, i’d go about it the normal way (DVDfab Decrypter and DVDshrink 3.2) they would burn succesfully, but i could watch them on my computer, but in my xbox360, home dvd player, OR my ps2(which has ALWAYS run any dvd) shows up as an unreadable disk. i suspect that it could be the firmware update i did, having something to cause it but im not entirly sure.
for refrence my drives model number is
i looked on the NEC site for an older firmware and all they had was 1.07, and i really wouldnt have a clue on how to do a rollback. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
