I have a 411s modded to be a 811s with the latest firmware installed (HS0R) and I had always bought Memorex 8x +R media and it had worked perfectly. 3 weeks ago I bought a 100-disc spindle of the same brand and type of media at CompUSA at $45.00. Well, I just opened that spindle today and tried to use them. To my surprise, the 811S does not recognize them. I tried about 10 of these discs and nothing, nada, zip! I only get a “medium not present” message on DVD Decrypter. I tried using other media that I still have available and they are being recognized as always.
I believe that this is a firmware issue and went to LiteOn’s page where I found out this message:
Customers, please be aware, that LiteON IT will no longer provide services to the products that have been " Illegally Firmware Upgraded ", such as flashing to other models’ firmware.
This means that I will not have an option to use these discs anymore? Please let me know if there is a way to fix this situation.
