I have a Lite-On iHAS624B drive and I'm trying to update the firmware to version GL29.
I downloaded the stand-alone update from Firmware HQ, but as soon as I double-click on it, my PC completely hangs. I can't move the mouse pointer or bring up Task Manager, so I have to hold in the power button on the computer to force it off.
I then tried Lite-On's website and downloaded/installed SmartPack, except as soon as I double-click on the shortcut for that, the exact same thing happens and my PC freezes.
Anyone know what's causing this? I've had 3 or 4 different DVD drives fitted in this particular PC and I've always updated the firmware of them with no problems, but this is my first Lite-On.
Also, is the GL29 update available as a .bin file? I'm assuming I could flash it using Flash Utility.
Thanks in advance for any help.
