Hi , I’ve done some searching on here and not managed to find a good answer to the following problem.
I have a Philips DVDRW824p (re)writer, it was revision 2.2 firmware that was supposed to be able to write -r media. (as bought from new)
It been flashed to the DVDRW824dp 3.3 f/w by mistake (which will not burn anything ), and now ive found out I cant go back to the 2.2 without paying for the d/l as the 3.3 flash program had no backup option.
So I decided to try the original 1.2 f/w I know its not dual format but i figured at least it might resurect the burning +r and cd but no the flash program wont overwrite the 3.3 f/w I assume it thinks the model number is wrong type.
So question is, can i force the flasher to use the earlier f/w revision, or if not can I use other firmwares from similar drives to at least get it working?
