DD-A100GX - How do I find the model number of the burner?

Hi!

I’ve got a DD-A100GX and would like to know what model the burner is…without taking it apart.

I’ve looked at every surface of the exterior and can’t even find an FCC ID number, only random numbers/codes that probably are useless to everyone except LiteOn.

Is there a way to identify the drive based on the product serial number or firmware or…?

For reference, this is the available info on my unit:

Model: DD-A100GX (3902205168)
P/N (on machine): 7819502424-A
S/N (on set-up screen): 0180-1142-0030-BC59 (1U15-0101)

The BC59 is the firmware version for the burner but not model number which should be on the top of the drive itself. I assume you do not want to open the case due to some type a seal (over a case screw).

are the DD-A100GX and DD-A110G the same?

Doing a search at the FCC website for Lite-On gave FCC codes of:

H4I
PPQ

Does that help?
