Re: Liteon 1693S stopped working with growisofs after upgrading firmware
I have a new Idea:
This is a NEW Version of Nero for Linux!
You can use it till 31.01.2006!
(the old Version does not work with 1693 - but i think i have tested
with Kernel 2.4.x)
I have downloaded this newest Version last Week but not tested.
This ist the English Version:
use a 2.6.x Kernel and compile growisofs!
It will works!

Unless you fear that the firmware would render the drive incapable of

that. I agree you don't want to ignore the issue, but vendors expect
you to reflash, so in itself that wouldn't void the waranty.
No thanks. What if I flash to a modified version of KS0A, and need to
go back to vanilla KS0A? What if I need to send the drive back under
the warranty due to a mechanical flaw? I'm not about to screw around
with firmware upgrades if I can get around it. By get around it, I
mean burn on Windows.
I still think that growisofs should be updated to fix this problem. I
mean, NERO works in Windows, so there must be a way growisofs can be
patched to fix the issue.
It would be nice if every hardware manufacturer conformed to standards
rigidly such that we didn't have to write any custom code for
non-conforming hardware, but in the real world we do have to
