    The 05 model is made by Cyberhome. They are out of business in the US and there is no service available. A correct firmware for them might be avail but can present problems.
    Ilo is a Wal-Mart brand and has not sold the 05 for quite a while but you say its New. If the unit [as a Wal-Mart brand] is in or out of warranty, I feel could be returned if you wanted to do so
    They made 3 models the ZU [a bummer], the MU and MU1. The identification is on a small white tag. I had all 3 and presently have a MU1.that works but is hardly used

    Is the unit giving problems? Why do you feel that firmware is needed?
    It has been my experience that firmware [unless messed with] is not the cause of problems.
    When working correctly they will play just about anything including a bagel if you could get it in.

    Well I my parents were using the 04 model and had to use firmware in order to copy protected dvds. Is this not the case with the 05? I haven't received it yet, as I'm awaiting it through the mail. Does the 05 model copy and playback protected dvds?

    No --- there is no hack for the 05. Firmware will not help
    The 04 was a Liteon. It and a number of older Liteon are no longer made
    Your post says you are are awiting the 05. I would doubt that it is a new unused unit. --- Who is the seller?

    Do you still have the 04? Is it a R04 or a RHD04 with hard drive?
    What is its problem? You may have some options. Your post indicates DVDs. Are VHS tapes involved.

    So will the 05 burn and playback copies of copyprotected dvd's?

    NO
    The 05 [WILL NOT] Copy and/or Burn a CP Disk

    I had asked some questions in a prior post
