Hmmmmmmmm… a Asus DRW-24B[B]3[/B]ST I haven’t seen that drive yet but
those scans do look very impressive indeed. :iagree: :clap:

I just wonder if it can be cross-flashed to a Liteon drive and if so I wonder which
one it would be maybe a …iHAS624… one can only hope so. :confused: :bigsmile:

I’m more incline to think that this is based off the x24 MediaTek ‘B’ series chipset, so no crossflashing to ‘A’ series may be possible.

Yep I’m inclined to agree with you on that, the back looks different than the ASUS DRW-24B1LT
it looks more like the Liteon drives with the NEC chip-set as the 24B1LT and 24B1ST had the two
little metal pieces by the plug-ins the 24B3LT does not have the two metal pieces by the plug-ins.

I guess it doesn’t really matter what chip-set it has with burns and scans like NewFish is getting it
looks to maybe be a fantastic burner at least on MIUE MCC004. :iagree:

LOL!! I’d like to see how it would handle burning some Princo discs. :eek: :doh: J/K :bigsmile:

I opened the drive and the chipset is MediaTek MT-1839LN.

The Asus DRW-24B3ST is a Liteon iHAS124 B clone. It can also crossflash to iHASX24 B by using EEPROM Utility’s convert drive function.

What are the basic differences between Asus DRW-24B3ST and Asus DRW-24B1ST?

[QUOTE=Bob1967;2547240]What are the basic differences between Asus DRW-24B3ST and Asus DRW-24B1ST?[/QUOTE]

The main difference I see is the chip-sets are different MT1879L I think it is for the DRW-24B1ST
and the DRW-24B3ST uses the newer MT-1839LN chip-set and the firmware is also different I do
believe.

My DRW-24B1ST was just KIA. Had a DVD explode for the first time in my life.
I went looking for an exact replacement but they seem to have been replaced by the DRW-24B3ST. I can’t seem to find a DRW-24B3ST in the US anywhere. Is it a known fact that the DRW-24B3LT is using the Mediatek chipset as I can find them. Is there any known downsides to the newer Mediatek chipsets.

Thanks
