Best quality firmware for LITE ON SOHW-1673s

Hi guys, what should be the best quality firmware for the LITEON SOHW 1673s…mine currently is JSOD…it sucks on kprobe tests on some dvdrs i bought a whle ago. thanks

The best firmware for your drive would be the LiteOn SOHW-1693S KS0B firmware. :slight_smile:
Don’t forget to apply a patch before, as this is required for crossflashing.

You could try the KC4B modified firmware available on the codeguys’ website and cross-flash your 1673S to a 1693S. This will void any warranty you might have left, however.

Firmware isn’t everything, so you also need to use good media that is compatible with your burner, and you might also need to lower the burning speed if you’re burning at 16x or 12x.

ok thanks…it’s effective ?

I don’t have that drive myself, so I can’t say for sure. You could take a look in these threads:

Quality Patched 1693S Firmware for 1673S, 1693S, 720A, 800A (KC4B)

LiteOn Fast Burn Dual format and Ultra Fast Burn Patch (12x burn < 6:30) NEW

New SOHW-1693S firmware: KS0B

i think that [B]KS0B FBDX[/B] is better than KC4B…

i see…i’ll take your word for it thanks a bunch… quality wise KSOB FBDX is better than KC4B? i’m using dvd+r and not DL because they (DLs) cost a pretty penny here
