First , let me make this VERY CLEAR , do a mistake and you'll be very sorry you have tried it ,
so doublecheck everything also i will take no responcibility in case something goes wrong,
it's all up to you.
You can find the Original documentation for this procedure and other Firmeware at Apex/Hiteker* DVD Hacking Pages.
An other warning not all Nintaus Players have the same drive mine is an Korea DVS DSL-600A LI09
which i updated to LI18.
Open up your Nintaus , i hope that you realise that opening your Nintaus kills your Waranty.
Also only do an update if you have problems with you Nintaus reading some disks, I couldn't read
most of the DVD-R discs on the market , i do now.
If you want to continue anyway start by removing 2 screews on your middle left , 2 screews on
your middle right and 2 on your top back of the unit.The result should look like this
Identifying your drive is the next step, examine your drive lables. there shoul be one on each side.
In my case :
You can see clearly on one lable that the drive is an DVS DSL-600A and the fireware version is LI09 on
the other. In this case you are ready to continue. Just for fun i did conect the drive to my computer ( You don't need to do this ) Here is the result.
The firmeware , let's choose the one that is good for us. Don't do a mistake here or you'll be sorry,
First if your drive is not an DVS DSL-600A don't continue take a look in Apex/Hiteker* DVD Hacking Pages and
let me know.
Now the Firmware lable of my drive is LI09 as you can se so the the Firmware type is LI version 9, be very careful not to mixup the letters.
|LD||12||Some issues exist with MP3 and SVCD playback with LD-12|
|LD||11||This is not an CDR update you will have to connect the drive to your computer.|
Create the CD . First you have to burn a CD with the files in your zip use :
Volume Label: ATPLDR_DOWN File System: ISO9660 Mode 1: CD-ROM Joliet is not needed but you need to fill some 40 Megs worth of files , just create a folder and put some mp3 inside.OK burned it ? take a look inside your player you will see an IDE cable leaving the DVD-ROM unit and conecting to
Connect your Nintaus to an UPS if possible if not any socket will do just pray that there is no energy failure.
1) Power on the DVD Player. 2) Open the tray (and remove any disc if present). 3) Turn off the player's power (with the tray open) using the POWER button on the player (NOT the remote control). 4) disconnect your IDE cable if you haven't done so. 5) Put the upgrade CD in the tray. 6) Power on the DVD Player using the power button on the DVD player. The tray will close by itself immediately after power-up. 7) Wait until the tray opens by itself (should be a few seconds). 8) Take the CD out. 9) Wait until the tray closes by itself (should take a bit more ). 10) Power off the DVD player 11) Connect the ATAPI cable again. 12) Power on the DVD player using the Power button on the playerNOTE folow the instruction exacly don't jump any step and note step 9 is very important if you don't wait
thats all folks just close your player and have fun
