I bought a magicspin 8X burner made by Accesstek. The drive, as you can see is an optorite DD0401 rebadged.
Bezel is different, but internals are expected to be the same. Firmware, however, is different as the drive is identified as “Generic 8X IDE DVDRW” instead of “Optorite 8X IDE DVDRW”
This difference prevents the optorite firmware to be used. I found sadly that the OEM firmware is stripped down, with slower writing capabilities and only 1X DVD ripping! Current firmware in the drive is 120E for accestek OEM.
Does anyone know how to make an optorite firmware flash this drive? Has anyone tried to modify a file? How about a .bin image? I think that even if a 110E/120E bin for optorite is available, maybe this van be flashed to the drive and make it “optorite”, then use the normal flasher.
Any help is greately appreciated.
