Need Lite-On Firmware Which is Not available from Lite-On Website



Help !

I have had issues with m drive no reading discs, i have tried a long list of things but none to any avail, it appears the only thing left to do is update the firmware.

I have a Lite-On DVDRW SHW-160P6S or at least i thought i did, when i download the firmware and try to run it i get this message:

Detected Drives:

This firware is not available from Lite-On, Lite-On support say that Acer (my PC) will have made some updates to the firmware but Acer say they need to take it in to service the machine, cant allow that as its the only machine my business runs from so cant spare the time.

Any ideas where i can get the required firmware?


Download from here:

You may require this to flash the above:

I think it would have been better if you just stayed in your other thread, but that’s just me. :wink:


If i have run the firmware and still not having any luck, im guessing its time to buy a new drive? this one isnt even 12months old which doesnt fill me with confidence, still, i guess all the CD burning and PQ reading software i have installed and un-installed has taken its toll on the drive.


Maybe try the drive on another system. From your other thread, it sounds like your Windows installation is just a bit messed up.


Its Vista, what isnt messed up about Vista !!
