Crossflashing DRW-3S163 with SOHW-1653S

Hello, its been a while since last post…
I have read within this forum the best alternative is to crossflash my new drw-3s163 (bought at Officemax) with the Lite-On sohw-1653s DR16CS0M firmware. Is this the best?? or should I just update the firmware with the same model’s firmware (from which has a 1-level update dated 12-6-04?? PS I tried to crossflash to the 1653S, but it won’t let me stating the drive is not found?
Thank you for any thoughts and advanced advise!

You might get a quicker reply if you post in the lite-on forum :slight_smile:
