Liteon LDW 411S

Hi everyone, can anyone offer any advise.
I have a Liteon LDW 411S Duel DVD burner. I upgraded the fimware to the latest version beacause i was having a few problems with discs.
Now when I put a disc in the drive just keeps spinning and not recognising the disc.
The firmware update was DR4FSOJ.
Was wondering if there have been any other problems with this firmware, and is there a better one out there.
Thanks in advance everyone.

Updating firmware is, at very best, a very risky business and if it all goes pearshaped then you will be left with something only fit for the rubbish bin.

Owners of various brands of DVD rewriters usually have a very good idea of which media works - or doesn't work - with their drives.

Thanks for your reply mate.
I know it can be risky. My mate has the exact same drive, he flashed his and it works fine. Only trouble is can't remember which flash version he used.
Read somewhere that DR4FSOF works well with Ritek -R discs. Does anyone know if this is true?
Also where I can get it, been several sites and can't get it.
Thanks all.

click here does Ritek and similar makes - it also lists which disks work best with various models of rewriters that it sells.

It also has an NEC 1100ND DVD+R rewriter on sale, this weekend only, for £34.99 including VAT.....:-)

Both pretty good sites guys, but didn't sort the problem out this time.
Thanks anyway.
