Its annoying cos its not an old computer, Btw my "error" is ..

Yeah, that one of annoying things about old pioneer updates!

 

The flash update program doesn't work with many IDE drivers.

 

Use this 3rd party flasher instead.

 

http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?t=36448

 

Just extract dvrflash.exe to the folder you extracted the real pioneer flasher/firmware to.

 

The from the command prompt window, change to that directory.

 

ie. type:

 

cd \DVR107D\FW122

 

The prompt should then say

 

C:\DVR107D\FW122>

 

Then type:

 

dvrflash g: R7100107.122

 

Follow any onscreen prompts (cant help you any more because I don't have a 107 installed!)

They should be... but the upgrade tool bombs out if you're using anything but the default Microsoft IDE drivers. It's ok now with the Pioneer 110 firmware updates though, they seem to work all the time.

 

You can force 9x compatibility via the exe's properties and then it'll use ASPI rather than SPTI. It works ok then.

 

I just wasn't sure if sober would have Adaptecs ASPI installed.

Well, besides just buying a new drive (which you'd probably have to also update anyway), you have 2 choices.

 

1. Use DVRFlash

2. Install Adaptec ASPI, and switch the DVRFlash.exe program into Win 9x Compatibility mode.

Hi, I tried that ASPI n it never worked either :o .. btw the text ive put in brackets, do i copy that exactly as it is in to command prompt or do i have to put the name of the drive i want to flash where it says cd ?

 

 

( cd \DVR107D\FW122 )

The prompt should then say

C:\DVR107D\FW122>

Then type:

dvrflash g: R7100107.122

Follow any onscreen prompts (cant help you any more because I don't have a 107 installed!)

it may be your trying to use the flash file from an xlb on a non xlb drive or the other way round etc.

 

 

and before you flash try just burning those discs at 6x max as on one of my pioneer drives those discs bomb, and if you have a flash in that allows higher burning than normal, drop the max speed to burn them down to the rated speed of discs, ie if they are 4x max but your using a hacked flash to allow higher burning then just use rated speed.

When you run the official pioneer firmware thing you downloaded, it should have extracted it to C:\DVR107D\FW122

 

When you bring up the command prompt, you should already be 'in' the C: drive so you type that command exactly as I wrote it.

 

CD \DVR107D\FW122

 

All that'll do is change the 'working' directory to C:\DVR107D\FW122

 

'CD' standing for Change Directory

Ok I give up on this fkn thing, but I really need to burn this disk!

 

btw I get this error after doing those instructions as quoted above..

 

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

? Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

 

C:\Documents and Settings\********>cd \DVR107D\FW122

 

C:\DVR107D\FW122>dvrflash g: R7100107.122

'dvrflash' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

operable program or batch file.

 

C:\DVR107D\FW122>

 

 

Thanx for any more help, also i have tried puttin .exe on the end of dvrflash in cmd to see if that worked.

Did you forget to do that bit?

download this from my ftp then extract it to your desktop. read the read me, as i have set up the drive letter to be G: as indicated in your posts, etc, run dvrflash by double clicking, it will tell you the drive letter of your pioneer drive. If it says G: then run the file called ascii. then follow onscreen prompts.

 

This is at your own risk just to cover everyones back, also dvrflash asks you to accept anyways.

 

check that the firmware inc is the same for your drive im 99.9% certain it is, as indicated in the posts.

someone else may check to be sure.

 

 

do not have a disc in the 107 when you flash it, make sure if you got key electric meter its got some money on it.

 

cannot remember if your allowed to have cd tray open or not, i have flash before on pioneer with draw open and closed and flash was successful, someone else will tell you for sure if you do some searches.

What i mean is, if you'd extracted the dvrflash.exe program to that folder, you wouldn't have gotten that error.

 

So something went wrong somewhere... maybe you extracted it with path names and it's now in a subfolder of the real pioneer one.
