When I replaced Vista x64 with XP x64 (surprise!) the Philips SPD2413p refused to write data to CDs or DVD. System kept requesting blank media.
Solution (after a day of tinkering around with another piece of crap HP DVD940i) I finally backed up the Philips EEPROM (great tool!), then flashed the unit with COdeKing’s software, 20A1P.KL0M.patched-fb.exe. Whamo… the unit works great!
Thanks to the dedicated people on this site I (a newbie) was able to solve a complicated problem.
Wish the OEMs (well, I guess that would be Lite-On) could be so helpful.
