i tried to flash KSOB and it wouldnt work, it said contact my vendor, im now trying codeguys…
You can also make your drive ‘region free’ with LtnRPC utility .
also KC4B is now saying unable to flash firmware
That’s really odd…try zebadee’s link above
ltnrpc also says
set DVD region failed
I’m out of ideas, this is a very strange problem
noo! dont give up on me lol
would the fact that i have nvidia dvd decoders installed have anything to do with it?
At the moment, anything is worth a try! Try uninstalling them
Sorry to jump in late, but I have the same burner as well.
You said your current fw is KS04? Have you ever had a bad or incomplete flash?
I’d check all connections + try uninstalling your 1693 via device manager. Then reboot & let Windows reinstall drive.
On the question of f/w I notice there’s a 1693SX. I don’t have the drive but have you tried this f/w also? It has the same ID.
yes, all of the flash’s have been incomplete or have had errors
Thanks for the extra input guys
i have just opened up my system and there is one cable the is in the dvd-+rw and not in my motherboard, i think it might be my audio cable?
im restarting my system now to reinstall it…
yes thanks everyone for your help, hopefully this problem will be resolved soon
I dunno. If this fails as well,…
Arachne, zebadee…do you think it’s time for something like MtkFlash?
nope, i still cant flash the firmware and it still isnt playing my dvd’s
That’s what I was trying to remember…I could just remember the name of it, but not how to use it, having never had a bad flash myself. Might be an idea
i really dont know what to do anymore
Hold tight, hopefully MaineMan or zebadee will come up with the MtkFlash wisdom
ok lets just sit and wait for a miracle
