I have an odd problem with the above drive. 90% of the time it works very well. Initially, I put it down to 'one of those things', but the problem has reocurred recently forcing me to take it as a problem that needs to be sorted: sometimes it it just refuses to read DVD's. I have tried to recreate the failure, and the only common thread I can find is that, after playing a CD based game for any extended period, it seems to key a DVD, but is unable to run it, however; should I run a DVD based game for a while, the reverse is not true. I am Googling firmware updates and whatnot, but it is not something I have ever tried before, so I would be grateful if anyone could share any similar problems, or shed some light on the issue. The drive is almost exclusively used for gaming, is running the supplied firmware, and only very occasionally is used for burning. Should no-one be able to provide an answer, I would appreciate a reliable firmware site for the drive, I am getting tired of hacking through l33t flash sites that promise the world I simply want a working drive.
