  1. Weirdest thing. I turned off the TSST system for about 10 min and it booted up and showed the CD back, but it showed it twice. lol. I used the Samsung flasher with the -NOCHECK option and just reflashed it to what it was. Now I'm back to the 400 version of the flash. I dont know what to do with it, but I think I'll just leave it for awhile.
  2. Yes, the LITEON is just using the standard factory FW. I reflashed it because I had applied some patches to it through that utility. So I reflashed it and got it back to normal.
  3. Ok, running diagnostics on that other system. This one has the LITEON drive. All I did was upgrade the firmware to the latest version from LITEON. When I put the DVD in it just says "No reference position found" But I did verify that it should work with this media. Should I chock this up as LITEON won't burn these? Also, do you know of a way to reflash the Samsung back to a TSST? I'm looking all over the cdfreaks forum for a flasher to do that, but I can't find anything. Thats expecting that I get this sucker back online, which I'm doubting. Honestly, I dont care. It didn't work well anyways.
  4. Well, I think this drive died or has gone offline. It had major issues with I/O errors. Then the name of it was all wacked. So I rebooted. On reboot it doesn't recognize it. So, now it doesn't show up at all. It gave me a SATA error on boot saying it couldn't find the device at 0. Attached is the weird name. Here is the log as well showing the I/O errors.

  5. Ok, so I cross flashed my TSST to a Samsung. I went from a TSST TS-H653B to a Samsung SH-S203B . I flashed it, then rebooted. Just tried to burn a DVD and got the invalid write error. The first one was really odd. It went into RAM mode I believe, showing 30 gigs and just wouldnt write past 7%. So not sure about that one. The next one seemed like it would write perfectly, but it failed. Here is the log. From the first log, it seemed like it didn't understand what kind of media was in it? I 19:14:43 Media Type: DVD+RW (Disc ID:
  6. Success with the Philips! Ok, in the interest of archiving this post and to document my steps. I couldn't burn a DL on Memorex RITEK S04 66 with my Phillips 8801. 1. went to CD freaks and found WinDWFlash. 2. also got the firmware CVT from cdfreaks, to use for it. It is the BCDC.cvt for the BenQ 1650 3. I used that to cross flash the drive to a BenQ 1650, BCDC version of the FW. 4. Then I got the official firmware from BenQ, the BCIC exe package. (the reason for the first steps are because it is not recognized as a BenQ drive, so the official package wont work on it until you cross flash) 5. I upgraded the flash to BCIC 6. rebooted 7. installed and ran QSuite, which I got from a search on a random site 8. enabled everything inside of QSuite 9. started ImgBurn with default settings, selected ISO that was 8 gigs, set the speed to 8x, and let her rip. Worked great. Now, with this new knowledge I'm going to try to cross flash my Samsung, then I'm going to open that patcher utility and enable everything... and give it a shot.
  7. Ok, this is my last post and then I need to get some sleep. Its 4am! Just to add insult to injury, I also tried one of my other computers here at home. This one has a LITEON DVDRW LH-20A1H. I updated the firmware to LL0D. Then I extracted it with that tool to create a .bin. Then I read that .bin with the media info tool. It does write to RITEK S04-066 in 8x, 6x, 4x. I also got the settings tool, and it allows me to enable Force Hyper Tuning, Over Speed Writing, Online Hyper Tuning. So, I tried to write to one and it wouldn't recognize it. It just said 'no reference location' or something like that. I definitely need to get some different media I think. Will this stuff burn in anything? are there any steps to maximize my chances of burning to it? I have like 200 blank DVD DLs. Another question, should I "patch" all of my DVD drives with these available options? I haven't changed any of the settings so far, but am willing to try I guess. Thanks again.
  8. Thank you for that. I'll install that first thing in the morning. Is there a way you can setup an affiliate store at Newegg with blank discs and your preferred drives? I would love to go to a store and just buy what is preferred, the best writer and discs, than have to make any choices. --------------------------- As for this burner, I checked, it has the latest firmware. It can burn to that media (although the complete readout does not show like yours did). I then tried to write a DVD9, and it almost seems like it wont write at all. Here are the logs, with the top bits cut off. The only difference really is that I put the first one at MAX and the second one at 6x write speed. I think this is the media being subprime, correct?

  9. I just did a little reading and found that this is actually a repackaged Samsung Drive and it can be crossflashed with the Samsung s203B firmware. http://club.cdfreaks.com/f105/dell-tsst-ts...success-244305/ Then reading towards the bottom of that thread, it gave the location of a patch utility to check your firmware. I downloaded the new firmware and then checked both of them. It seems the only difference is that you can also patch for the additional 12X speed, whereas on the Dell Firmware, you can't. I guess, really the only thing to do now is just try and burn 7 gigs onto a disc.
  10. I looked again. I see no corresponding letters from his reply to any of the 4 versions that are offered. What am I missing? ---- Thank you for your continued help Lightning. Could you tell me which firmware I should install on that machine? I'm home now on another system and trying to get my TSST corp TS H653B DVD+-RW up and running. I haven't attempted to write a DL yet, wanted to make sure everything was prepared first. I found the program that you used above, and ran it on the new firmware for my DVD here at home. Should ImgBurn burn this ok? The only odd thing is that the complete media codes are not displayed, but looking at yours and comparing it to mine, it seems like it should burn.
  11. I had before yes, but could not find the proper 1650 Firmware. I found the site, http://benq.co.uk/support/downloads/index.cfm?productline=28 and it lists 4 different types of 1650, do you know how I can tell which is which to install? DVP 1650P DVP 1650S DVP 1650T DVP 1650V
  12. I don't know. This is just a default install of Imgburn. I have updated the Firmware to the latest and also have updated the Bios as well. When I do a media info, it says that DVD+R DL is supported.
  13. Thanks so much for the speedy reply. I'll take a look around and see if I can find a cleaning disc.
