I have an Asus SDRW-08D2S-U external slim DVD burner drive with A701 firmware. The official specification for the drive may be found:

The Nero InfoTool information for the drive with serial number omitted and a picture of the drive’s label are attached.

I have not been able to find any firmware update for the drive. Is this drive an OEM version of another drive? Can the drive be cross-flashed to a different model?

Is there a way to dump the drive’s firmware?
