Difference between Liteon LTR-48125S and LTR-48125W

Bought a 48125w i had to find out that it actually is a 48125s.

As a result a few questions are now passing my mind:

  1. What is the difference between these 2 models and which of these cd-writers is better?

  2. Assuming the 48125w offers some advantages, could i update the 48125s to a 48125w without any risk?

Backup your current firmware and try it. You can always flash back.

Thanks for your immediate reply.

What application can be used to backup the current firmware?

And i still don’t know the differences between these 2 writers :slight_smile:

I’ ve also bought an LTR-48125s last week.
I speak to the Liteon-Hotline in the netherlands (speak german)
and they told me there ist no difference between the hardware (chipset etc.) of this drives.
The 48125w offers no advantages (Both modells write p-cav, mount rainier support).
The new firmware 1S01 of the 48125s shall support more media.
Newer firmware shall soon be available on www.liteonit.com.
