    Here is the scenario,

    I went to the Taiwan site to upgrade the firmware to the latest version for my Teac W516EB.

    All went well....

    Then I went to the british site and I noticed they had been taken off the site due to writing bugs!

    Now the updated version is out and it won't let me upgrade as it says I have the latest firmware installed...

    Now my Ritter freeze the system at 52% in nero every time :mad:

    Apart from wait for another update does anyone have any ideas on how I can trick the updater?!!!!!:eek:

    They use autoflashing programs in XP that check the drive first to see if it is the current, past or future firmaware revision....

    Just have to wait till another revision comes out.

    I hate Teac drives, my first one died (on it's own) and it took me months to get a replacement under warrenty an now this!

    Must be a conflict with Nero and the new firmaware coz it works perfectly with VOB.
