I just purchased this DVD-ROM off ebay. I put it in my machine this morning, put in a Wii game, opened RawDump 2.0, hit "start dump" and it responds with "Fail!! DVD drive may be faulty!!"
I searched through these forums, and found similar things that were fixed by flashing an updated firmware. My dvd drive has firmware v 18.
So I grabbed the upgrade to v 33, put on a dos-boot-disk, restarted, loaded dos
typed: flashup2.exe a:\0033S.DLD
then it responds: "no cd/dvd model drive dvd-rom gdr8162b. "
Can anyone help me get this to flash to 33 .. or better yet, let me know if this would even fix the problem of RawDump 2.0 not being able to make a backup of my game.
I read a little more, and some ppl say that with that error to try FriiDump instead of RawDump. That true?
