    I recently swapped out the broken DVD burner (SD-W3002) in my Toshiba D-R2 DVD recorder. I replaced it with a Hitachi-LG model GSA-H20L.

    I can play DVD's so that's a good thing. However, I cannot record DVD's. That's a sad thing.....

    Upon closer examination, I realized that the DVD firmware version was changed upon installation of the new burner.

    How is it possible to flash the Toshiba f/w onto this new player? I already burned the iso images of the firmware disks, however, when I attempt to upgrade the firmware onto the new burner the DVD recorder tells me the software ain't compatiable.

    Thank you for your guidance.

    Very bad idea trying to use the wrong firmware on a drive. You're lucky it didn't destroy the drive. And since this is covered in your other thread and this is considered a crosspost, locking it. Please read our rules before posting.
