EDIT: and yes, that would be the right order of events.
Just be aware that a successful crossflash still does not guarantee success with your task, as it’s been reported to not work that well on older drives for some people, even when using good media.[/QUOTE]

The DH20A4P I still have began to fail after many successful burns.
If you replace the PCB capacitors with high-quality Japanese equivalents before using the drive, it should last longer. What happens is that the cheap capacitors Lite-ON use fail after a while, and excess ripple goes to the laser and kills it. After the laser is burnt out, obviously replacing the caps does nothing. If you have a Lite-ON drive you like, re-cap it pre-emptively before putting it to use.
Cheers, and thanks.
