    It must be ripit4me that put the virtual drive on there. I have used all the other programs you mentioned, and they don't do that. I've never used ripit4me, so I'm really taking it for granted, that it's the culprit, since I know for a fact, it's not the other ones.

    Delete ripit4me, do your firmware upgrade, if you can, and then reinstall ripit4me, if you want.
    Good luck!

    Actually this happened in another thread yesterday. But it was with a Lite-On burner that was rebaged for HP computer. So when they tried to use the Lite-On firmware update for that drive they got the same error as you (but with the Lite-On drive information of course.

    So the only way they could upgrade to the new Lite-On firmware was to download a patched version that would let them overwrite the rebadged (Lite-On) HP drive firmware to the new firmware out for the LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-832S drive.

    Your ID string on the drive now appears as Sony DW-Q58A UDS2. The firmware will not work until the ID string reverts back to the version without the UDS2. That ID string is part of the firmware. I have no idea how it changed. The burning software is not likely to do it. Try to rename it in Device Control just to see if you can eliminate the UDS2 and try again. You might have to uninstall the drive and reinstall it to see if that works, too.
