Problematic Sony DW-Q28A

HI,

I have a Sony DW-Q28A DVD burner connected to an 1.2 GHz Athlon, IWill KK266 system with XP Pro SP2 installed. This is installed as the master on the secondary IDE channel, the other drive connected is a Samsung CD-ROM. When I put the Sony into DMA, it goes all weird, e.g only showing the first folder on a DVD game (e.g. LotR:BfME), however in PIO mode it shows everything listed on the DVD. I updated the system BIOS to the latest version, but no joy.

Do I need to update the firmware, and if I do, how please? The current Firmware is listed as KYS1.

Below is the results from Nero InfoTool:

Can anyone help please?

Cheers,

Troy

backup your current firmware with LtnFW and then flash with KC4B firmware. you’ll find it here: http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares/dvdrw/1693S.KC4B.patched-cf.rar
if it doesn’t help remove the ide channel where your drive is connected to in the device manager and reboot. windows will search for new hardware. it may help.

How do I backup my firmware please?

Thanks,

Troy

Use LtnFW

I crossflashed mine DW-Q28A day one and haven’t had any problems… :slight_smile:

BTW, I see your mobo uses VIA Apollo Pro 133 chipset… not a good start. Use search for more insight.

get ltnfw here: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=83294
