I'm about to purchase the Asus 24B5ST and wanted to check that I could flash firmware that will allow me to change the bitsetting on +R and +RW (By default I think it can only +R9)
ThoughI suspect it is the case, can somebody confirm that crossflashing to the LiteOn ROM will allow me to do that.
Why not just buy a real Lite-On in the first place if that's all you intend to do with it?!
Oh I am honoured the author of a program I've been using for years has replied in my thread! (Many thanks for that!!) Even if said reply is only seeking justification for my post.
I'm not really in desperate need of a DVDRW but sometimes for heavy burning sessions it would be nice to have 2. There is a Asus going cheap on a forum and pretty much the only requirement I have before getting it is making sure I can change the bitsetting as pretty much all my blank DVD's are TayoYuden T02.
I was gonna say that the LiteON is actually cheaper than the equivalent ASUS atm at newegg, but then I saw you lived in the UKCan't help ya man, good luck
Oh so the Asus is 2nd hand?
You can get a new iHAS124 D delivered for Â£15. At that price, I wouldn't even be looking round for ways to get a drive any cheaper.
Best of luck with whatever you decide to do
