i have a combo drive QSI 241 in my compaq Presario 2156EA notebook.
with this drive i have the following problems:
- the drive could nominally write at 24x speed, but really it writes at 8x speed; i’ve searched on Compaq forum and another user that had the same problem had solved it with a firmware upgrade.
the only firmware that i found is on the Etna home page; no official QSI firmware found on manufacturer site.could i install this without any problem?
- when the drive writes in TAO mode gets an error on writing Lead-in and Lead-out; in DAO mode Nero says that it’s writing the Lead-in, but after burning the cd is not written on the inner side (on the Lead-in area).
is the drive damaged?can i solve the problem with the firmware upgrade?
my O.S. is Win XP Home, and i have tried to burn both with EASY CD CREATOR AND NERO 22.214.171.124.
Thank you in advance for your answers
