Need help with firmware update

I recently bought a new pc with a dvd burner. I have copied about 50 movies now with dvd+r. There was a sale on 25 pack of dvd-r that I bought. Of course when I tried to burn a movies it said the disc was "not usable’ or something like that. I did find out that I need this firmware update thing. I though it would be easy to go online, download the file and install. I guess there are specific updates that I need. So I hope someone can help point me in the right direction. My burner is:

dvd+/-RW DL Multiformat Drive
lite-on dvdrw sohw-1633s

hope this helps.

This is my first post. I hope it is OK.


Here’s the LiteOn firmware page

If you scroll down to your drive, I believe BS0Y is the latest firmware for it. On the same page are instructions on flashing your firmware.

C0deKing’s patched LiteOn firmware is also very good, you can find out more about that in the LiteOn forum.

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:

I got all that. but when I unzip the file it says:
No match drive detected.
Utility for lite-on dvdrw sohw-1633s

deteced drives:
4-0-0-0 lite-on dvdrw sohw-1633s BGS4
4-0-1-0 lite-on cdrom ltn-489s 8GS4

Any ideas

Check the liteon sub forum in this forum! They will give you expert help!

Select the detected drive 1633s if you can! Also try another version from codeking as suggested!
