Lite-On Firmware

I've just this day got my lovely new Lite-ON SOHW-1673S. So I bought myself some Memorex DVD-R's to burn some stuff off, & to my suprise, the disc's are supported. Sorry, the brand's -R discs aren't supported. I have a Memorex DVD+R which has been burnt onto by a friend (who also has a Lite-On drive, be a earlier drive) and that worked fine.

But my reason for asking for guidence is that I went onto the LiteOn website for the firmware update so my drive would support more media, but I can't seem to download the update. The link for the .zip file just send you in a loop! The link is...

I don't understand what Im doing wrong. So if anyone knows of anywhere else I can get this update, I'd be most greatful!

Thank You

Are you using Internet Explorer?

I used IE (using FireFox) to get the file. Weird that Firefox missed the file to download, even with the pop up blocker et al I still should have been able to get that. D'OH, sent an e-mail asking for help too! Poo

I have just been reading up on a few facts & figures for Memorex,apparently they were a brilliant audio tape mfg and have been trading on this reputation ever since.

Memorex PC media is pooh,so save the worries over updating the firmware on your drive,and buy reputable media.Use this utility to check the media's suitability (DVD Identifier click here )
