Once again,you don't need any if you connected it right oem smoem.
Windows has all you need.After you connect it "properly" and boot to windows you should see new device detected,select the Windows search for "drivers etc".or whatever it describes.
If this doesn't work then it's connected wrong.
Please forget flashing Pleeeeeeeeze.

Once more though,does it appear in my computer ? eg"
A C D E F etc ?

Its not that it doesnt work, I just wanted to get the thing flashed with some newer drives. It will burn and read a DVD, but it seems that when i copy it to the hard drive there are skips in the DVD. Like it kind of freezes up for a second then kicks back in. I have a powerful computer with plenty of ram, hard drive space, video card, etc. What could be my problem here?

This is a read/write problem not a drive problem,so lets go from there.
Bet you won't send me an email will you,so suffer.

I have some new drivers that require flashing the bios. I dont really understand....Here are the directions. If someone can put them in english for me-that would be great. I know its a lot to look at-but I just dont get it. Thanks in advance.




Using DVRFlash on Windows platforms

[General Notes]

Pioneer DVR drives usually require 2 firmware files for flashing. One is
called the kernel and the other the normal part (or general part).
If you are not converting a rebadged drive to a true Pioneer, or if you are
simply applying a patched firmware, you don't necessarily need to provide
a kernel, so don't panic if you have only one firmware file.
In the following command samples, we will assume that both files are used.
Also, if you do have a kernel file, you should know that its revision does
not need to match the normal part revision. For instance, you can use a
1.05 kernel with a 1.13 normal part.

And once and for all, don't play it more stupid than you are!
If you are worried, you probably shouldn't because people who publish the
firmwares do everything they can to provide you with exactly what you need.

In short, flashing a firmware is not the end of the world, and it is not a
license for bothering busy people with questions on how to use the flashing
tools, the files you need, or how to actually use your Operating System...

Besides, DVRFlash is pretty much bulletproof and what's more, Pioneer did
such a good job with their DVR drives that you are very unlikely to kill
one, even if you have no clue what you are doing.

If you are still unsure or worried, why don't you:
1/ Do a SEARCH at http://forum.rpc1.org
You will find that your question has probably already been ANSWERED.
2/ Give DVRFlash a try. DVRFlash will always try to help you about what
you might be doing wrong.
3/ If all of the above fails, then, AND ONLY THEN, you can try to post in
the forum with RELEVANT INFORMATION about what you are trying to do and
how you are trying to do it.

But I have to repeat; the information is already out there.
The only difference is that smart people always know how to find it...

In the following samples, the kernel firmware is 'R5100004.133' and the
normal firmware is 'R5100104.133'. You will need to change those names
according to the firmwares you downloaded.
You can input these firmwares in any order you like as DVRFlash will
recognize them automatically.

And YES you can go back and forth ANY official/patched firmware revision
or patch official/patched x.yz over official/patched x.yz
Don't you think we would TELL YOU if it was otherwise???


[NT/2k/XP/2k3]

You don't have to install anything special. Just open a DOS Window and run
a command like:

DVRFlash -vf I: R5100004.133 R5100104.133

In this case 'I:' is the DVR drive letter.
The command above will force flash a 105 compatible drive (in I with the
Pioneer DVR-105 v1.33 firmware
The command above also works with USB/Firewire drives


[Win9x/WinMe] (and any Windows version with ASPI32 4.60 installed)

First, you need to have Adaptec ASPI32 v4.60 installed.
Then you need to figure out the SCSI ID of your drive. To do that, just try
something like the following until you find your drive:

DVRFlash -v 1.0.0
DVRFlash -v 1.1.0
...
DVRFlash -v 2.0.0
etc.

Alternatively, you can download the win32 version of cdrecord and run:
cdrecord -scanbus
This will list all your devices SCSI ID (the x.y.z thing).
Once you have the SCSI ID, enter the command:

DVRFlash -vf x.y.z R5100004.133 R5100104.133

Where x.y.z is the SCSI ID you found above

Note that you can also use the SCSI ID on an NT/2k/XP/2k3 platform if you have
ASPI32 installed.
This was all a waste of your time and mine
So please reply to the real problem.
