Can I flash my ltd163d with the ltd165 firmware?

I will probably need the bin file I know but I will give it a try…anyone got the bin file then??? heh heh!

Go to the link in the new Lite-On firmwares thread…follow it go to DVD and download the firmware, open the zipfile and you will realize that it’s actually a bin firmware!!!

But the bad part: the LTD-163/LTD-163D have 128k flashrom while the LTD-165 have 256k flashrom…so I think you are out of luck…

Hmm, you sure? The GHR3.exe file (firmware for the LTR-163D) is 325k, a bit long seeing as it’s just a 128k firmware file and MTKflash rolled into one…

Hm, I’ll look into it…

OC FREAK…I tried the flash and it doesnt work…in fact it stops all activity from the drive…no LED , the eject doesnt work etc…hope you dont mind but I have made another thread to catch everyones attention warning of this…my drive re-flashed to GHR3 firmware ok after I disconnected it (windows refused to boot with it attatched)…good old mtkflash!!!
