A few days ago, I got myself a new LiteOn LTR-16102B. It came with firmware version OS0F. I decided to update the drive with firmware OS0K, so I downloaded the firmware from the LiteOn-site and run the program.
That didn't go very well, because after I pressed the 'Flash'-button, I got some weird dialog box about reading back a buffer or something. So I clicked Ok, but nothing happened further. Tried it again a few times, but constantly the same strange dialog-box.
When I checked the properties of the drive, it still showed the old firmware version (OS0F), so then I definitely knew that the upgrade was not succesful.
But then the real problems started: every CD I put in the drive was recognized as an audio-CD with only one track. Doesn't matter if it's an audio-CD or a data-CD, every disc has only one audio-track on it, according to my LiteOn LTR-16102B.
Then I tried to burn an audio-CD with Nero, but I got an error message after 3%, having my first coaster in a very long time.
So I figured that maybe an entire new flash would fix the problem, and got the mtkflash-program and the bin-file for the LTR16102B. Booted in DOS and flashed the drive, everything went OK, so now the softwareversion is back to OS0B.
But still the same problem: the drive doesn't read any CD I put in it correctly. Every disc has one audio-track. Since I've had this drive for only a few days, I'm rather disturbed.
Would anyone know a solution to my problem? It would be greatly appreciated!
