Woohoo! :flower:

Nice work.

Great job on this review Jan70 :flower:


#5

in my opinion it’s strange that the top part of the drive itself looks a bit different from the picture of the drive on the box.


#6

Great review Jan70, as usual, and very interesting drive. :stuck_out_tongue:
Just a question. Is the drive without led? :confused:

Even the press picture from Lite-On also looks different compared with the ”real drive”.

No it has a (green) LED, but it is hardly visible when it is not in usage. In the attached picture you can see where the LED is located.

Thanks, a blue led would be a better choice.

Looking at the firmware there are two versions, one with DVDRAM read support and one without. How do I how which is the correct version to use with my drive? Also, how do I verify the firmware version that comes with the drive? Thanks.


#15

run nero infotool, it will tell you firmware, and if you drive can read dvd-ram now.

if it can, get the dvd-ram firmware
if it can’t get the non-dvd-ram firmware

I got one of these Liteons for XMas but the Power DVD oem that came with it will not work. I am running XP with a ATI 4850 dr ver. 8.1. It says it is not complient with copy right laws.
