Just wondering if anyone has had any luck updating firmware on LiteOn
burners under Linux with Wine or some other way. I had a go tonight in
an attempt to sort some dodgy behaviour from the drive and had no luck
with Wine or an actual Windows box! I got errors about the ASPI layer,
even though I confirmed it was installed and reinstalled.
I did mail LiteOn about this tonight...
"I would appreciate any information you can provide me on updating the
firmware of my LiteOn DVDRW under Linux or even DOS. I do not use
Microsoft Windows on any of my computers.
"I chose this LiteOn product due to the value for money, your reputation
for producing reliable hardware and good ATAPI compatibility, making
burning discs under Linux effortless. However, if I cannot keep my
hardware's feature set up to date using my operating system of choice I
will be forced to look elsewhere for future purchases of this type.
A bit bleh, I know, but you have to be a little bit crawly... :) I don't
go on like that in real life or anything. I think I did quite well given
the raw, white-hot, frustrated rage I was feeling at the time. Time to
sit back and wait for a reply... *cough*
