Firmware upgrade for CD-RW

  Muckle 22:21 10 May 2004

I have downloaded a firmware upgrade for my CD-RW, but am not sure how to apply it. Is it as simple as double clicking the exe file?

Is there something wrong with your CD-RW?

Whats the reason for applying new firmware?

The drive isn't recognised by new Sony camcorder software so i thought this may help?

it should be a last resort to do what you are thinking about doing try a cleaning disc. a pound at a £ shop

  User-312386 22:38 10 May 2004

you could be taking a risk here

However, are you sure its the sony camcorder software that is the problem?

I would e-mail sony first as they may have a patch for there software, rather than updating the firmware on the CD-RW

How old is the CD-RW?

meant to say

are you sure its NOT the sony camcorder software that is the problem?

The CD-Rw is an LG GCE 8400B about 18 months or so old - it works fine with nero so maybe i should contact Sony - their software seems a bit poor compared to the hardware?

  User-312386 22:46 10 May 2004

I would contact sony

If you have nero why would you want to use sonys software?

Are you sure this is not a software conflict?

He may not be able to load the drivers of the CD

could be

Muckle- Do you know how old the software is? Just been thinking if the Sony software is older than the drive then it wont work

You could try this, It may sound daft but I have found it works. Start NERO and put the software disc in and choose copy disc. It will make a copy to the hard drive if it can and then it will ask you for a blank disc and it will create a new disc if can do this it will work with the new disc. I have found this works when it cannot read it in windows Explorer etc.
