    I have CRX850E too and wanted to update my firmware. i was instructed to check for updates because of a disk read error upon installing Warcraft -WOTLK xpac. Tons of people are getting the same error right now and everyone is being told to update their firmware...

    i checked the dell site but only found something called CRX880A, and i dont think that would work?

Hi,
why do you want or need a firmware update ?
if the drive is functioning correctly, it,s best to leave it alone.
Flashing a drive with firmware, can lead to an unusable drive. if you get a corrupt file-bad flash or power cut. you,ll have a pretty paperweight.

Where can i find firmware updates for LG GSA-4163B dual layer burner - believe it to be A106


You can download any available ODD (Optical Disc Drive) updates from http://us.lgservice.com. Click Product Support, click Optical, choose your model number from the list, and click go. Click the Drivers & Software tab. Download the latest version posted (highest number).

The firmware for all recent drives works with Windows. Before running the update, make sure the drive is empty. Close as many programs running the background as you can. Run the downloaded executable file to start the update. Some will automatically start updating the dive and some will require you to push "Upgrade" or "Start". If the firmware doesn't see the drive it was designed for, it will not install.

WARNING: Never update the firmware if the problem you're having is the drive isn't seen by windows, won't write with the included software, or other interface related problems. Unless the firmware specifically states it fixes the problem you are having, firmware updates normally don't fix these types of problems. Trying to update the firmware when there are interface problems can damage the drive's firmware. An error when updating the firmware is usually caused by a problem with the drive interface or there is more than one drive connected to that IDE channel.

IMPORTANT: do not interfere with the drive during the firmware update. If an error occurs during the upgrade process, or the upgrade process is cancelled during this process, damage to the drive can occur. If you experience any problems or have any questions, please contact our LG customer support line toll-free at 1-800-243-0000.
Hope this helps you

Driver for SONY CDRW/DVD drive seems to be corrupt. Help, anybody


Go to my computer, and right click on it, when the window opens
click on properties, when window opens find devise mgr and click on it.

When devise mgr opens, look for cd/dvd rom drives, click on the little
sign in front of this and it will expand, and you will see the dvd drive.

Right click on the drive and when the window opens click on properties, now at the top you will see a driver tab, click on the driver tab, and it should say microsoft for the driver provider.

The drivers for the rom drives is built into windows,

Now click on the general tab, in the box, does it say this devise is working, or does it say the devise is not working.

You can go back to driver tab, and click on update driver, let it search
the internet for a driver, follow the instructions, it will either say it has the best driver, or it will find one and install it and you have to restart the system,

If the driver is there, and the unit says its working, then it is the drive that is bad, and you might have to buy a new one.

If you get any error codes or if it says anything, you can post back
so we can get this problem fix,if possible.

Cd-rw 230ED, not working


Try this Solution : Download a firmware flashing tool, and an Updated Binary File for the Drive,
Then Run the Firmware Flashing tool, and Locate where the binary file you downloaded is, then click on Start.

The link for the Firmware Flahing tool and the Binary File for the drive is :
http://www.allfirmware.narod.ru/OS.htm
Its a russian site, but just scroll down and locate the model number of your Sony CD-RW, You'll see both the Firmware flashing tool as well as the Updated binary file for it just beside it.
Hope this helps.
Goodluck!

Hi billi boy
It seems that that problem is with your software, so what you do now is ,Reinstall the software you got with your cd-drive (nero or roxio) and then try to burn the cd's .

Don't forget to give your thanks.
