Creative CDRW 1210E: newer than LCS6?

Well…does a newer firmware exist for this drive than the LCS6 revision?

I did a search of the forum and found nothing

The reason I ask is that I have found that drive is finding it difficult to read certain media and even some audio CD’s.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

:cool:

I think that there are at least two different versions of the Creative Labs 12x10x32x drives. There is a firmware update for the CD-RW Blaster 121032, it is version 1.08.
See here, or here.

Thanks…

but this is the RW121032.

My model is a totally different drive, being the RW1210E. Its firmware is LCS6.

It was purchased in australia.

That was exactly my former drive’s case . Having flashed it in DOS using the LS38 and pflash I managed to turn my drive into LTR-12101B. Then the Windows flasher LS3J23 did the next upgrade.

Just let me know if you need those files, OK ?

That’s a bit different drive

hrm…yes, I will need those files so it seems.

Thanks for that.

It would be easy to send them to:

carrollnet@bigpond.com.

I do have a qualm though. How do you know this is a Liteon drive? Also, I have never used pflash. I have only ever flashed my Liteon LTR48124W.

I may need some assistance.

Check your mail box

This is great…=D. My flashed burner is working well…

but…now that it is a Liteon…12101B…can I flash it or ‘OC’ it to a 16X?

Thanks.

Additionally…can the RW1620E be flashed to a Liteon?

This drive cannot be overclocked. I would assume that the RW1620E can also be flashed to a Lite-ON.

bummer…=/. Well…it being a liteon drive is good enough for my liking. Boskin?..do you know of the flashing procedure for the 16X version of the creative drive I mentioned above?..or if a compatible Liteon firmware exists to flash to?

Congratulations ! :smiley:
I rcvd your mail as well.
As for OC’ing it, as it already was mentioned by dhc014, unfortunately you won’t be able
to take your drive any further :frowning:

What revision does the RW1620E have ? We’ll see what can be done here.
