I have an MXI GX620 Laptop, with an Optiarc AD-7560S (SX01 firmware) installed.
I am having some problems playing different kinds of dvd movies on the laptop. They just don't seem to read properly, yet i can explore the actual discs fine - just playing them makes it crap itself. This seems to be limited to discs that were more recent purchases of mine, as opposed to the older discs i have that seem fine.
After doing some reading, it appears i'll need to upgrade the firmware on the drive. However my manufacturer (MSI) don't have any kind of firmware upgrade, and I've tried the one on the sony website to go from SX01 --> SS03 and that does literally nothing.
Does anyone know if i can load some custom firmware that will resolve this issue? I've been reading the binflash thread, and it sounds like i can dump my current firmware and replace with just about any firmware i want - but i'm unsure what i should replace it with.
