Wrong firmware

#1

Hi im new to this. I wrongly necflashed my liteon SDW 431S DVD±RW slim type with the wrong firmware. Now i have the 2.22 and the original one was 4.60. The driver is the NEC 6500A. The dvd works in windows, it’s a lil slow but the bios dont recognize it anymore. How do i flash it back to the 4.60. I already tried it in windows and in dos but it says that cannot do it coz it says the driver and the firmware dont match. Can anyone help me? Thanks a lot

What has the 431 to do with the nec 6500???


#3

Did you flash this 6500 fw to the 431??? And how, with exactly what flasher?

On the packard bell site they say i have a lite on dvd player, but if i use Nero it says i have a Nec 6500a. I flashed it with Necflash from 4.60 to 2.22 and now i cant go back to 4.60, and the bios dont see my driver anymore.

You probably will get IDE #1 error now because the drive has a wrong firmware for it’s connection.
Easiest way would be to buy a adaptor to connect the drive into a desktop pc and flash with the correct firmware. A 4.xx firmware!

That would be a great idea, what should i ask for? A cable to connect a dvd rom for a portable to a desktop pc? And this happened just because i couldnt burn Memorex DvD…dang! Do u know why when i burn dvd sometimes when i read it on my home dvd player it blocks or i cant see very well at certain moments usually at the end? and i use dvd shrink at 4300MByte maximum. Thanks a lot

That is a media issue then, that’s why I would stay away from Memorex! :wink:

You’d need an adaptor slimline type > 3.5" IDE.

sometimes it happens even with Verbatim…lol well thanks a lot for your help. I hope i’ll fix it coz i dont want to buy a new dvd-rom even coz i cant find a universal one.
