LG CED-8080B Problems


On Mint (115.40) this hardware seems to have some bad firmware. Others report a similar problem and yet others say they have no problem at all. If I knew how to obtain an update to the firmware and how to install it, no doubt it would all work! The problem is only for writing TAO. DAO seems just fine.

Bill Unruh (unruh@physics.ubc.ca), posting on comp.os.linux.misc in January 2001, had the same problem with a 8080B compatible and mentioned that it works okay in DAO mode but not TAO. This is expected to be a transient problem as the driver catches up with the drive.
