Windows 7: DVD player and sleep mode

Also, if you download and run the firmware version 1.58, it will usually check and display which version you currently have and ask you if you want to update it. If you have the same version (1.58) then cancel the update, if its older then allow it to continue.

it's done, but I doubt it was the source of the sleep mode problem

Looking at the readme file there, the newer firmware should help improve writability on DVD-R DL media and on +R media at least.

You snuck that in on me. lol

No it probably won't correct the sleep mode probelm, but hopfuly will stop it from opening the tray on resume.

Did you do what Brink suggested with the network adapter to solve the sleep issue so you don't have to disconnect the cable every time?

Are both issues solved?

1. is the tray staying closed on resume?
2. will it stay a sleep with cable attached?

you'll know tomorrow =)
I don'T think that putting my PC to sleep for 3 minutes will show if the problem is solved or not, I'll put it to sleep all night

A very easy way to check the firmware on any CD/DVD device is to install img burn and then go to Tools>Drive>Check Firmware Updates

img burn is awesome, plus is supplies the make and model the the website: Firmware HQ
or if you know the model number, you can manually check there.

PS, if Tools>Drive is dithered, select an action first (Like write image file to disk) then it should appear.
