Hi all,

I am using a Dell Latitude D800 laptop. It came with a NEC DVD-RW ND-6100A drive which I flashed to become a NEC DVD+-RW ND-6500A so it now has + and - support. Then I upgraded the firmware from 2.22 to 2.24. The problem is I cannot view any DVDs. The DVD in question is region 0, and I have Regionkiller so it should not matter anyway - this shouldn't be a region issue. When I attempt to play the disk, all I see is a black screen, no audio, nothing. If I scroll forward the computer gets a system error and I am forced to restart. The DVD works on my DVD player connected to the TV.

Hi all. First time posting. Been looking for answers the whole day though to fix my problem. I'm a newbie. This is my first DVD-RW drives and i screw it up.

Same thing happened to me. My firmware was originally 202c from Dell. It worked fine beofre I flashed it with the latest 203D. Now I can't read/see anything in a DVD media (I can't watch DVD movie anymore!!!). I can read CDs though.

Anybody know what's the problem? What should I do?

Please, please help.

i think that 203D is the latest firmware for DELL Pcs, maybe the problem here is just the used DVD player? Why not using Media Player Classic?

Thanks for the reply all. I'll try the Dell's firmware and see what happen.
