Hi Binksy and welcome to our forum.

You could try this file, I think you might be able to flash your drive with the P3.3 firmware. (And then use the official firmware update from 3.x to P3.4).

Remember you are (cross)flashing your drive on your own risks.

Hi Binksy ,
I have exactly the same drive and also want to burn dvd-r . I’m now looking at the same screen as you posted above ( in 2007). I have p1.5 and want to up it to 3.3 and then 3.4 but the philips flasher gives the error: FAIL 1 , just like in your screen.

What did you do to solve your problem???

Using the 3.4 firmware allows burning +R at 8x and -R at 4x. If you really need to burn -R, read your PM. Keep in mind that the media support of this old drive is poor, it knows no 16x media at all, so they will be burned slow using a default strategy. It is time to get a new drive…
Here is the media code list of the 3.4 firmware.
