Anybody know where I might find a firmware update for a LiteOn SSM-8515S? It came installed in my wife's Acer Aspire 5000 laptop and I can't seem to find any firmware anywhere. It came with GRS2 and I don't actually know how current that is. I use ImgBurn all the time on my desktops with no problems, but am having nothing but trouble with this laptop.

I tried one to burn a data disc using a Prodisc DVD-R and it wouldn't finish writing the lead in. I know they are junk but I've burned hundreds of these on my Pioneer 109's with no problems. After 20 minutes, I force quit and rebooted to get the disc out. It had written some, but not past the lead in.

Thinking maybe this drive just didn't like Prodisc, I used a Verb DVD+R DL even though the ISO was only 3Gig (all on first layer). It wrote the lead in and then the full image at 4x, but then hung up on the lead out. Again I force quit and had to reboot to get the disc out. The disc finished and reads back fine, but something isn't happy.

This is only the 2nd and 3rd discs that have been burned with this drive. The first was a Prodisc burned with DVD Dec that worked fine.

I've looked on the ACER site, the LiteOn site and rpc1.org with no firmware options at all. Any other ideas would also be a help.

Here is the info panel from the Verb burn. I couldn't find any saved logs, maybe since I had to force quit out both times?

You think that's funny - I'm still using this drive and just came across this thread - in 2016!!!.

 

Looking out for the firmware file!

I don't think Acer released anything newer than the GRS6 firmware it's currently using.


Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!
