I bought this dvd-rom drive because my old lg (hl-dt-st 8160b) stopped reading dvds... But there is a little problem...
The speed for DVD+/-R/DL is locaked at 8x. I modified my firmware and tried to flash it... But here is where my problem begins.
I can read the firm using some windows tools (ltnfw, ltnflash) but I can't write it (both tools just hang). Mtkflash (tried 1.80 and 1.83c) can't even read anything (v1.80 stops at Reading: 00%, 1.83c stops at something like controler: 1f0, master/slave: a0). I tried on all the configurations ide1/2 master/slave. Still nothing. Mtkwinflash says "err: unknown flash type" - or similiar. Reading at 8x really sucks.
Coud someone help me with this problem, please...
I'm also using Seagate Barracuda 120Gb hdd, liteon shw-16h5s writer, Abit nf7 v2.0 mainboard (nForce2). I tried connecting only SOHD 16p9sv on pri master. Can't do anything.
Did anyone run into similiar problem? I can flash my shw16h5s writer with no problem. (well, not using the ltnfw, and ltnflash - they still hang, but the original flasher is working fine)
Thanks in advance.
