    Guys maybe someone can help. I have a GDR-8082N0106 USB Drive. When I try to run Rawdump and press Start Dump it just displays NOT RESPONDING. Im using Vista...Can i change the firmware to 007? How can I do this?

    GDR8082 0106 will work this is DELL firmware....

    The trick is timing, when you start rawdump, place the disc in the drive
    to dump, etc....

    Vista does not recongnise the disc, so locks up...

    I suggest press start dump, then put the disc in...

    Thanks for your reply. I tried what you said and I did get a little further. Wii Disc detected did appear and Getting DVD name appeared at the bottom of Rawdump. unfortunately so did the message Error!! You might have a faulty Drive!!

    I tried this on a laptop with Win2000 and Vista and the same message on both. I dont thing the drive is faulty though. Any suggestions?

    I just bought an 8162b. The OS I am running is Vista. I am running the drive via USB & IDE connection. When I powered the drive up, Windows searched for the drivers, and has set the drive as a generic USB device. It does not shop up in My Computer, and I cannot find drivers for this anywhere online. I did manage to find some sort of flash file for it, however that does not help because it only recognizes the drive in my laptop. I really want to get this thing running so any help is appreciated!

    Broken down..

    Vista OS
    Connected via USB & IDE

    You need to establish a baseline on a known working system.

    Take your external DVD drive to a Win XP system and see if it works. Windows XP should recognize the enclosure and the drive within it unless you have something really funky.

    If it doesn't work there the enclosure or the drive are probably defective.

    Can't speak to any problems with Vista but I highly suspect that is the issue.

    I believe it was the drive and I sent it back.. I just purchased the one listed a couple posts above.. We will see how that works.. Tested the other on XP, and I got nothing.

    OK, I would suggest testing on XP first when you get the replacement.

    Don't know about the 8163, it should work by all accounts. I have an 8162 and 8164 and they run with no problems.

    Unfortunately I will not have access to XP when this one comes in (I was working on someone elses PC at the time). Hopefully this all works out and that will be the end of it. Really strange though that Windows recognized it as a USB Mass storage device, but did not show up in My Computer or device manager as a DVD-drive.

    When I plug in my internal HD via IDE-USB, it recognizes it, and also states the make and model of the HD. Then it shows up in My Computer no problem...

    I received my GDR-8082N 0C11 and did my first rip, information is as follows...

    USBSTOR\CDROM&VEN_HL-DT_ST&PROD_DVD_RNM_GDR8082N&REV_0B10\DEF10A737D82&0

    Ripped Guitar Hero III and got the following...

    Size: 4482 MB (4,699,979,776 bytes)
    Speed: 1134MB/hour
    Time: 03:56:57

    I was hoping to get a little faster rip times but I guess I won't complain because at least I can rip..

    edit: I'm going to try to hook it up the the computer via IDE, set to PIO mode and see if I get better results. I'll follow up.

    edit 2: Drive gives an "unexpected handle" error in PIO mode. I guess I'm limited to ripping via USB.
