I think I have trashed my LTR-0841. I feel really stupid. Well, I have tried to upgrade my LTR-0841 which is a 8x 4x 32x rewriter. I’ve read here that it could be upgraded to a LTR-12101B, which is 12x 10x 32x, quite cool. Well, I’ve downloaded the firmware and started flashing my drive, this is where I screwed up things, I think. After flashing I got an error message, saying something about compare error or something, then I restarted my machine, my drive seemed to be detected, but I didn’t trust it, so I wanted to reflash my old firmware back into it. Unfortunately, this went totally wrong, it started flashing, gave an error message: “ATAPI command error” ,or something and when I restarted my system my rewriter was not recognized anymore by the bios. My question is: how can I reflash my screwed up rewriter so it will be functional again?
Flash again with pflash (not mtkflash, and with the correct binary firmware!) after having done the jumper trick like shown at this pick:
Thanx for the help, I’ve put a jumper on it, reflashed my drive and it is working again. I’ve flashed it with the firmware from the 12101B, my system recognizes it now as a 12101B.
