[QUOTE=chef;2262497]Then convertxtodvd is your problem.[/QUOTE]
I’d agree with that - I had the same problem with ConvertX 3 on other drives too, not just my 5170S - the problem occurred even when I’d back up to an ISO file. In the end I reverted back to ConvertX 2, which always worked a treat for me.
My own 5170S came with my Dell Dimension E520, and I used Binflash and Dee’s 1.M1 firmware.
As Liggy says though, don’t forget to back up your existing Dell firmware (mine was 101B or something) - I forgot to do this, but luckily the drive has had no problems.
