[QUOTE=blackened2687;2767660]Could you please dump the firmware from your drive and upload it somewhere e.g. Zippyshare? After looking at your dump we can say which exact drive is it. Where have you got this version? Is it have an ASUS logo on the front bezel? Could you please make a photo of the drive (at least the drive bezel)?
If this drive is a LiteOn, you can use Flash Utility 7.2.0 to dump the firmware.
I’ll see what I can do. I haven’t tried dumping firmware yet.
(For the questions I can answer immediately).
The front plate doesn’t have “ASUS” written anywhere. Asus is only written on the sticker on the bottom of the drive.
I purchased this drive at a local computer store, where they had over 20 in stock on the shelves. I did notice some had a manufacturing date of August 2015, and some had a date of September 2015.
