A friend referred me to this site and I was hoping u guys could help me figure out whats wrong with my writer and If I can fix it.
As per the title, its a Lite-On DVDRW SHW-1635S with latest firmware YS0Z. At present it cannot read or write to any cd media,but it can read and write dvd media. This started out when it couldnt write audio or video cds - a power callibration error showed up when writing with nero. I read around, got a tool called LtnFW, backed up the firmware, exactly 1mb in size, then tried flashing it again with the same firmware version but downloaded from the lite-on site, hoping it could get fixed, but it was a no go.
How do i fix it, is it possible to get it at least to read cd’s, let alone write? Is it also possible to crossflash with another firmware and if so which one and would it be fixed? Ive heard this drive has issues with cd media so am hoping I could get some help. If need of any more info, any questions, post back and I’ll provide whatever you need.
