Backing up the .bin files

I have a sony dvd rw G120A. I have found an update here
Before flashing the drive i would like to backup the .bin files but do not know where to find it,if someone could direct me to it i would be most grapeful.
Running xpsp2. The present firmware is MYS1 and i would like to flash it with MYS6 version.
P.S I have downloaded Ltnrpc

Welcome to cdfreaks. :slight_smile:

You can try with [I]C0deKing’s[/I] Flash Utility “read flash” function posted here.
Haven’t done this myself but IIRC this utility is able to backup almost all MediaTek chipset based drives.

Thank you! I will try this out.Do you think i have the right firmware.The liteon equivalent is SHM-165P6S. thanks

Hi,

indeed, MYS6 from sonyisstorage.com is the correct firmware for your drive. As pinto2 already wrote, you can use C0dekings Flash Utility to backup (and restore) your original firmware.
