LG WH14NS40 does not recognize discs after updating to the LG WH16NS60 1.00 firmware

Post by DiegoLeite23 » Tue Nov 10, 2020 11:04 pm

Good night ... how are you?

I followed the instructions on that link:
viewtopic.php?f=16&t=21015

I hadn't noticed that my player (LG WH14NS40) was from 2013. When performing the procedure, he doesn't recognize any disc. I returned to the correct factory firmware and the problem persists. Is there any way to resolve this?

Billycar11 ...
Thanks.

I was unable to recover. Windows recognizes the device, but not the disks.

Watching the video below, when doing what is requested in minute 1:50, the message firmware incorrect appears.
Did I lose this drive permanently?

Model information follows:
WH14NS40
ROM VER .: 1.01
SN: 306HFZT012933
MANUFACTURED: JUN / 2013

Thanks a lot for the help.

Thank you again.

I searched the forum for a few things, but I didn't succeed. Do you recommend by command line or by .exe? If so where to download the .exe?

It is linked in the guide Billycar11 posted earlier.

You were advise and warned about this and to read that guide in at least 3 different times already in your posts across the forum. Yet you still ignored all advise and warnings and went ahead and bricked the drive anyways. You need to take the time to actually pay attention to and read the guide(s) and instructions that have been advised. This is an online forum, so it’s impossible for us to read it and learn it for you. You have to do your part in all this.

So pay attention to what has been advised—yet again—and use the SDF Tool to see if you can recover. Here is a direct link to it:

And once again, please pay attention and read the instructions carefully.

Hi It's really just my fault. I ignored the drive's manufacture date, so this problem occurred. But at no time did I ask for detailed information regarding the process. My posts on this online forum were just to get help and not disturb the most experienced in the subject. I read and watched the DosFlash method carefully, but without success. Soon I will try through SDF ... If I succeed or do not ask for help or thank you. Thank you.
