I know that my Iomega ZIPCD3840INT-E is a Lite-On based on the front cover, amongst other things but I’m not really sure which one it is. I suspect it is the LTR-12102C but am not yet sure. I need some help confirming this.
First, is there any way to tell these apart from external view? I point up a scan of my drive a long time ago for you to see.http://www.geocities.com/nil_einne/. Some details are hidden but I can reveal them if necessary.
Secondly, what about internally? I haven’t yet looked to see if my drive to see if it is easy to open (main problem will be Torx screws if present) but if it is and there is no easily damaged/misadjusted parts, I’ll be willing to open it since the warranty has already expired.
Next I would like to ask whether anyone knows if mtkflash can make a backup of a Sanyo chipset recorder. Pflash doesn’t seem to have a backup option. I’ve made a backup of my firmware with mtkflash but I have no way of knowing if it’s ok/correct (it looks ok). If anyone has a Sanyo chipset Lite-On drive you could help me test this. (LTR-0841, LTR-12101B, LTR-16101B according to the FAQ). You need to download the firmware you currently have on your drive. Then extract it from the file. After that, use MTKflash 1.55 to make a bin backup of your firmware. Compare this file with the one you obtained from the web. If it is exactly the same, the it appears likely that MTKflash can backup firmware from Sanyo chipset drives. I can offer more help on how to do this if necessary.
Note earlier I didn’t list the LTR-12101C even though it is supposed to have a Sanyo chipset. The reason is because Lite-On for some reason does not have an update for this drive. Does anyone know why? Would it be possible for someone to make a MTKflash backup of this drive’s firmware and send it to me.
Also, could please send me the LTR-12102C drives RS09 firmware. And anyone who kept a backup of the original firmware or some how has firmware older then RS09 please send it to me.
My e-mail address is listed but please write here before you send anything so I don’t get 10 copies of the same thing. You don’t have to wait for my reply. Once you’ve written it here, you can send it.
Also, any other help you can offer is greatly appreciated.
