Need help flashing back to stock

vbimport

#1

Well I followed a suggestion/link in a thread, and messed up my DVD-ROM.

I’m using a Sony DDU1615-GYS1, and I tried to cross flash it to a LiteOn. Now it’s not reading anything, and I can’t figure out how to get it back to stock firmware. Can someone please help?

Which firmware did you use to crossflash?


#3

Thank you for replying, it got flashed to a LiteOn SHD-16P1S

Hi,

seems as if that were wrong. Check http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares.html if you can find some firmware for your drive.
Other sources: The big firmware thread here and www.sonyisstorage.com (There you’ll find GYS4 firmware, but you’ll have to patch it using Flashfix)

I’ve checked codeguys, and they have nothing for a GYS1.

I’m confused about the www.sonyisstorage.com link you posted, I can’t find anything there as far as a forum goes. It looks like a Sony B2B website or something…

Okay. Maybe you should drop them a line :wink:

Don’t be worried - they seem to have reorganized their website. Just klick on “Service&Support” on the left side. This should lead you to https://sales.sony-semicon.co.uk/sunshine/index.htm (Strange, indeed, but it works).

[B]Edited.[/B] I see OP already had the same problem posted here:confused:

Strange because according to this, [B]G[/B]YS1 is a DDU1611 firmware.
Check drives sticker what drive you have.

Well, I was able to download the .exe GYS4 update, but it didn’t recognize my drive (probably because it’s got the LiteOn firmware :confused:)

It is definitely a DDU1615.

Thank you for your help guys, I honestly appreciate it. This is giving me such a headache.

Post a Nero InfoTool output with that drive selected.

Download from link, unzip and execute. Make sure your dvdrom is displayed in main window. Click floppy symbol at top of app, save that .txt file. Post in “#” [ code] tags with your next post.
