Do any firmware patchers support an external Lite-ON 812S?

Hey guys, I’m getting an external DVD burner from a buddy of mine today, and while we were messing with it on his computer, it comes up as a Lite-On 812S (it’s repackaged as some other brand not sure what it was), but I was wondering if I could flash the firmware on this sucker with it connected to USB 2.0 or Firewire? If not, I’m still hoping I can crack the casing on it and use it internally.

So, would this burner be flashable when running on a USB 2.0 or Firewire connection? Thanks very much!

yes it can be flashed externally without any fear whatsoever, done it loads a times.

Yep. Things work the same with USB/Firewire. Just pretend that the drive is internal and proceed normally.

Edit: Guess booma beat me to it. :wink:
