    I gather that it operated fine prior to the firmware up-grade and the same DVD disks are being used
    That the new firmware was the only file on a CD–R/RW disk [finalized?]
    It could be a bad upgrade. Or bad download. At what site did the download come from?
    Do you know what firmware was in the unit prior to an up-grade?

    How old is the machine
    Press Setup. In the top to the right there should be a set of numbers.
    Example, 0102-1840-0098-B207-xxxxxx
    First set is the series
    Second set is the unit version [1840 is usually a 813s] [might be 1140 and a 451s] drive
    Third is the firmware version [indicates firmware 0098]
    Forth is the DVD drive firmware [B usually indicates a 813s drive

    Is the unit hacked?
    Did you have a specific reason to go past firmware 0098?

    The first numbers given indicate an 1840 unit with firmware 090, drive B203
    It did not sound as though you had any problems prior to the upgrade to 1101.
    I had acquired a 5005 that had been upgraded to 1112 and it had failed.
    I have not gone past 098. Over 098 will not permit a hack. LiteOn has messed with the firmware and I can see no reason to go to 1101 [called 101].

    Go here
    http://www.pumapeople.com/liteon/US.../0102-1840-0098-xxxx/Via 0102-1840-0098-B208/

    Select the second item [LNFA1098.ES5.0102.184z.zip]
    Download and unzip it.
    The unzipped file should be [LNFA1098.ES5] a 1902KB ES5 File
    This file And ONLY this File should be burned to a NEW Blank CD-R disk
    [Again Only this file should be on the disk]

    This will install firmware 098 to the 5005
    I have two 5005 units with this firmware. Both with hack work fine

    If you want a hack Go here for the program and Info

    Remember the ilo and LiteOn are basically the same

    The 3hr recording mode is a result of using a hack. Firmware 098 can be hacked, The ability is there, but LiteOn [ to my knowledge ] has not offered a firmware for this unit to enable 3hr. You can hack the 098 as I said before with the site given
    I take it that the 098 firmware is in effect and the unit does play CD and commercial DVD disks
    Why after a firmware upgrade to 1101 and now a down grade to 098, it will not recognize a DVD +/- disk that you say it did before, eludes me
    As I said both the 5005 I have work fine, play or record. [Both had 1101 now have 098]
    The DVD could have problems with the laser in recording but I should think it would again recognize the disks as before.

    LCSHG I THOUGHT THE SAME ABOUT THE LASERIN RECORDING, BUT WHEN I SAW THE CD PROGRAM ASKING ME IF I WANT TO RECORD VCD OR SVCD . I SAID TO MY SELF I AM DOING A LOT OF THAT LATELY. THE LASER HAS TO BE GOOD IT MUST BE SOFT WARE MAYBE IT NEED A SECOND FIRMWARE OR A GOOD KICK
