WoW that’s fast! Thanks for the links.By the way Work with 8480B but still just 1 light.

Can you flash it back to 8481B? How would you go about it, just getting the regular firmware off the korean site? thx

No you cant flash it back with the original kor firmware.

you have to make a backup of the firmware using Mtkflash if you ever want to go back.

MTKFLASH * R /M /B ***.BIN

*1=PRI MASTER
2=PRI SLAVE
3=SEC MASTER
4=SEC SLAVE

found it out by searching but thank you for quick reply

hmm have a strange minor prob

nero cd speed detects all my blank cd-r and cd-rw as 32 min after i tested with data cd which still detects well. i tried going back to old firmware still shows 32:00 min.

I have the same problem but without updating the firmware, don’t worry

oh alright thx its just strange that it start doing that today… ah well i dont have 52x media now so ill OC it again when i get the media

had a similar problem with a BTC drive by any chance do you both have alcohol 120 install uninstall it and try

farookh

thanks again you are right, uninstalled and it came back.
im gonna OC it first then install alcohol since i didnt have prob with alcohol until i updated firmware

thanks

mtkflash not working with Lg GCE 8481B

Dont see ne reason why

make sure you use the one in the zip file with the W /M /B command to write the new firmware

Does it still read CD-R’s at 40x ? (with the 52x firmware?)
