Official latest firmware fix for DVD-R lead-in (was released at 2007-07-10)

H652D KC03 (SH-S182D / Sony DRU-830A)
Changelog
DVD± Lead-in Improvement
Download

I would recommend S182D owner to crossflash their drive to this firmware (with sfdnwin -nocheck). SH-S182D SB06 doesn’t seems to fix DVD-R Lead-in yet and I think there is no further update for that drive.

I’ve done it long time ago. I didn’t post this information earlier because nobody seems to talk about this issue anymore. But I think I should share it with everyone :wink:

For SH-S182M owner (have to do the crossflash):

TS-H652M KC03
