Is it possible to update an Liteon 851SX to an Duallayer Recorder?

Is a 851 note the same like an 812?

greats from Germany!

Nope, if you had an 812S, you could have flashed it to a 832. Best bet is to invest in an 832 (or 812 to flash to an 832). You might want to hang onto your 851 though since to date I’ve found it to be great for recovering dodgy discs using the latest stock Lite-ON firmware.

According to this page here http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=100956 you can ! :slight_smile:

Yes indeed you can now…I’ve flashed my 851S already…

Can you point me in the direction of the firmware files needed to flash my 851S to become a dual layer burner.
