Asus DRW-24B1ST E-hammer

Just got a Asus DRW-24B1ST burner. It has this E-Hammer that allows you to permanently delete the data on writable disc. I thought that was a option? I use DVD+RW alot for movies and put 1 in and erased it with imgburn now the disc is shot. Can the E-Hammer be disabled? Or can I crossflash it to a Lite-On iHAS-324 to remove it?

Thank for any help, Steve

Lite-On iHAS-324

Can you not un-install E-hammer in the add/remove programs?
If not then look in the C: drive for the folder called E-hammer
and just delete the folder that should get rid of it.

Yes you can crossflash it to a Lite-On iHAS-324 and that should
stop it from using the E-hammer SW I would think. :confused:
