Slimtype Combo LSC-24082K

I got your solution but unfortunately eMachines has no updates for software and/or firmware for me to download. I've already tried.

I also tried to get the firmware from the maker of this drive LiteOn but when I tried to install it I got this error message:

No Match drive detected!
This utility is only for slimtype combo LSC-24082K

Detected drives:
1-0-0-0 Slimtype combo LSC-24082K

It is the same thing right?!?

Since I can't get the updated firmware/software, then should I go ahead and do the rest of what you said? And if so, how do I save my firmware? I didn't understand your instructions. I've posted your email below:

This will Fixya

Go here and select your computer model and select firmware update for the drive,download and save to the desktop.
Go here and Get the Firmware flash Save to the desktop
Go here and Get flash fix Save to the desktop

Step 1: Make a backup copy of your current firmware. You can do so using LtnFW. you should make this backup incase you decide that you want to undo the firmware flash, you will need a backed up firmware.

Step 2:The firmware flasher is checking your drive and seeingthat you have an OEM model and is thus refusing to flash it. FlashFixwill patch the firmware flasher so that it will agree to flash your drive.

Step 3: After using FlashFix, run the flasher, make sure that you select the correct drive from the drop-down list, and flash.

Please rate this a fixya

Also,If you have more than one burner program,you may need to remove some.( for example Roxio don't work well with Nero )

    Like I said before, I only know enough about computers to be dangerous!!!!!!!!! I have no idea where to find my currently installed firmware (or even what it would be named, what file, etc) let alone save a backup.

    I'm a smart girl but you have to understand that I don't work on computers. I've just spent a lot of time trying to figure out my own but that is the extent of it.

    Please talk to me like I know nothing. I don't want to ruin my computer by doing the wrong thing.

    It gives me an error message when I try to open the 'flashfix' and 'flash' programs. It says: 'the compressed folder is invalid or corrupted'. I tried to download again and got the same error message.

    I need to take the plastic face off of a lsc-24082K slimline cd-rom/dvd-rom drive. I have an Emachine M6410 laptop. I am scared to break any plastic tabs by removing. How do I do it safely?

Note: FlashFix=flash fix

Step 2:The firmware flasher is checking your drive and seeingthat you have an OEM model and is thus refusing to flash it. FlashFix will patch the firmware flasher so that it will agree to flash your drive.

    Ok,Just skip the backup,Download the programs using the provided links and run the program called "FlashFix"

    Once that has completed,It will allow for the firmware file,(FROM THE FIRMWARE LINK)To be ran on your computer.Now you can run the firmware,Just double click it and install.Restart computer.




    1. Run FlashFix (this just allows the drive to accept the firmware)

    2. Run Firmware file.(This is the firmware)

    3. Restart computer.

There may be one available as a block diagramme for a fee on a web site somewhere but that is not common.
Most manufacturer trained computer engineers know how motherboards work alongside the firmware and chosen software so there is no call for them.

What is the difference between windows 7 editions: starter, home basics, home premium,ultimate, professional,interprice?what is the difference between service pack 1 & 2???pc


Since October 31, 2013, Windows 7 is no longer available in retail (except for the Professional edition preinstalled):[6]
Windows 7 Starter Windows 7 Starter is the edition of Windows 7 that contains the fewest features. It is only available in a 32-bit version and does not include the Windows Aero theme. The desktop wallpaper and visual styles (Windows 7 Basic) are not user-changeable. Microsoft originally intended to restrict users of this edition to running three simultaneous applications but this limitation was dropped.[7]This edition was available pre-installed on computers, especially netbooks, through system integrators or computer manufacturers using OEM licenses.[1][8][9] Windows 7 Home Basic Windows 7 Home Basic was available in "emerging markets", in 141 different countries.[10] Some Windows Aero options are excluded along with several new features.[1] Home Basic, along with other editions sold in emerging markets, include geographical activation restriction, which requires users to activate Windows within a certain region or country.[11] Windows 7 Home Premium This edition contains features aimed at the home market segment, such as Windows Media Center, Windows Aero and multi-touch support.[12] Windows 7 Professional This edition is targeted towards enthusiasts and small-business users.[1] It includes all the features of Windows 7 Home Premium, and adds the ability to participate in a Windows Server domain.[1] Additional features include support for up to 192 GB of Random-access memory (increased from 16 GB),[13] operating as a Remote Desktop server, location aware printing, backup to a network location, Encrypting File System, Presentation Mode, Software Restriction Policies (but not the extra management features of AppLocker) and Windows XP Mode.[1] Windows 7 Enterprise This edition targeted the enterprise segment of the market and was sold through volume licensing to companies which have a Software Assurance contract with Microsoft.[1] Additional features include support for Multilingual User Interface(MUI) packages, BitLocker Drive Encryption, and UNIX application support.[1] Not available through retail or OEMchannels, this edition is distributed through Microsoft Software Assurance (SA).[1] As a result it includes several SA-only benefits, including a license allowing the operating of diskless nodes (diskless PCs) and activation via VLK.[14] Windows 7 Ultimate Windows 7 Ultimate contains the same features as Windows 7 Enterprise, but unlike the Enterprise edition, it was available to home users on an individual license basis.[1] Windows 7 Home Premium and Windows 7 Professional users are able to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate for a fee using Windows Anytime Upgrade if they wish to do so.[1] Unlike Windows Vista Ultimate, the Windows 7 Ultimate edition does not include the Windows Ultimate Extras feature or any exclusive features as Microsoft had stated.[1] All editions will receive Mainstream Support (new features and bug fixes) until January 2015 and Extended Support (security updates) until January 2020.[15]

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    You can recover the file with 3rd party data recovery software.I have succeed to recover files from external hard drive with Tenroshare Data Recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost files. By the way,you can download it and scan your hard drive for free to preview whether your file can be recovered. Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm

    How to install Anti virus on my desktop


    Following the steps to install antivirus on you pc.

    Compare antivirus software. Look at the features and benefits of each. Read reviews from authoritative editors from magazines such as "PC World," "Smart Computing" and "PC Magazine." Editors who write for these magazines typically test antivirus software as an unbiased outsider and write about both the good and bad sides of antivirus software. For example, the editors at "PC World" recommended Avira AntiVir, Avast Antivirus and Panda Cloud Antivirus in an August 2009 article. Visit the websites of each antivirus program to view screen shots and descriptions of how the program works. Make a final decision about which antivirus program you want to install.

    Navigate to the website of the antivirus program you've chosen. Go to the "Downloads" section of the site if you're obtaining a free antivirus software. Click on the "Purchase" section or "Buy" button if you have chosen licensed software; pay for and complete the transaction. Click the "Download" button or link for the antivirus program. Save the file to your computer desktop or to a computer directory or folder which you can easily remember.

    Find the antivirus program file you downloaded on your computer. Double-click the ".exe" file (which is an executable file that will install the antivirus program). Once you double-click the ".exe" file, the installation process will automatically begin. Click "Continue" or "Next" on each screen to complete the installation process. Enter your name and contact details if registration is required. Follow any other on-screen prompts to complete the antivirus program installation. Restart your computer if necessary.

    Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


    This can be for a number of reasons.

    First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

    Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

    If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

    Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

    Hope this helps.
