my problem is, that I’ve tried to modify the firmware of my SDW-431S(internal) with omnipatcher to gain a higher burning speed on some Verbatim DVDs. I succeded so far, but after the flashing the problem showed up, that the drive wouldn’t read any more CDs although it reads DVDs without a problem. After some googling and reading in this forum, I’ve ended up thinking that I have overflashed my calibration data in the EEPROM.
Now, to pull myself out of the sh*t I am searching for a tool to recalibrate the drive (if there is or ever could be such a programm).
Another chance could be to try other EEPROMS in hope to find one which allows my drive to read CDs again.
The last and hardest way would properbly be to ask for some support from Acer (it’s an Acer notebook 1501LMi).
I hope someone could help me with the calibating programm or even some EEPROM data.
