40125S to 40125W?

vbimport

#1

If both the LTR-40125W and LTR-40125S use the same same chipset (MediaTeK's series 5, the W/S indicating P-CAV/Z-CLV) shouldn't it be possible to flash a 40125S with 40125W firmware (say WS03) to turn the 5S into a P-CAV drive with non beta firmware (albeit without Mt. Rainier) ?

Has anyone done it ?


#2

That shold be possible.

But I doubt that it will perform better/give better results than the zs0g unofficial firmware.


#3

when are those damn unoffciial f/ws gonna become official !!! (rhetorical)


#4

SO whats the best f/w for the 40125S ?


#5

If you want the best write quality/stay safe: ZS0A
If you want the best speed: ZS0G

Im currently running zs03, I just downloaded the R40ZS0A.zip file from the LTR-40125S/windows/ folder from your firmware files download page. So all I have to do is extract it and double click, right?

Soz for the n00bie question, but I really am a n00bie :confused:


#7

Yes, that is how you do.
And no questions are too dumb to get an answer. :slight_smile:


#8

i double clicked the zs0a.EXE and it said to pick what liteon IT drive I wanted, but there was no selection of anything, the window was empty, and it had nowhere where I could input a response…I exited…did I just f*ck my drive?

If it was completly empty (just a gray box), you’ve been in close encounter with Lite-On buggy firmware-flasher.

Did you download it from Liteonit.com?
If not, do that. It will probably solve your problem…


#10

yes thats what it was, just a grey box, and I downloaded it from here.

Try this link: Firmware ZS0A

Do this version work better or is it the same version?

Things to try if it still not work:
-Try to Disable DMA
-If you use IDE drivers other than those shipped with the OS, uninstall them(Via, AMD, SiS, Intel…)
-Make sure your drive is connected to the standard IDE controller and not to an extra add on controller.


#12

I’m curious…

I’ve seem the ZS08 firmware out there (and some claiming to use). It is newer than ZS0A or older? Obviously, the ZS0A is still the best for quality burning, right?

Thanks!


#13

thanks OC freak, all is well now and I have upgraded :smiley:


#14

ZS0A seems to give the best write quality.

ZS0A is newer than ZS08.


#15

ZS0A seems to give the best write quality.

Cool thanks bud! :smiley:
