YES. Codeguys are great!!! Use Lite-On Flash for Windows and Backup your current firmware first, if you're unsure!!!
I just flashed my drive with the new firmware from Codeguys and it does not help a bit. Here's the exact error message that I get everytime :
"Sorry, your compilation cannot be written on this kind of disc. Please insert a disc of correct type or modify the settings of your compilataion to make it compatible with the current disc.
Disc required for this compilation: DVD -R/RW
Disc type in the recorder: DVD+R "
I don't know what it means by modify the settings. The only setting I can think of in Nero SmartStart is not to check for the correct disc type, and that's what I did before ripping an image of the source disc and before I burnt the image to the DVD+R. In other words, I unchecked the "Check for correct disc format for this compilation" question before I copied and burnt. This Nero software reminds me of the crappy CD Creator Deluxe version 5.3 I bought years ago. Both the Nero and CD Creator software do have an impressive user interface and that's about it. Neither software ain't worth sh!t. I did manage to download a plain vanila DVD Decryptor program on the internet. Despite it's plain vanila look-and-feel, this DVD Decryptor allows me to burn the image of the DVD on my hard drive (which I created with the Nero SmartStart) to a Verbatim DVD+R without any problems.
