I’m new here and I think I mess up my drive. (or maybe not)
The thing is that I received my new HP Pavilion zx5170ea with a NEC ND-5100A.
Well I flash the drive with the 5100A@5500A firmware ( http://tdb.rpc1.org/#ND5100A
) without test it first and I didnâ€™t done a backup too. (This was a big mistake)
Now my drive burn DVD+R and DVD-R perfectly but it fails to read some DVD-R recorded discs. (???) I can read these discs in other systems without any problems.
It can’t even read the â€“R discs it writes.
It start to read those but it ends with â€œread errorâ€ always at the same faze of the disc reading. But the sector where the error occurs changes from disc to disc.
Is it a hardware error? Is just the drive that is too sensitive? Is it the firmware? If so where can I find the original firmware that comes with the drive of this HP model? If someone have that firmware plese PM for my email.
Please help me. Iâ€™ll appreciate that very much.
Thanks in advance
