DS-8A2L unscrambled or BIN

#1

Hi!

I need an unscrambled firmware for the DS-8A2L. This is a slimline drive which came with a lenovo notebook. It identifies itself as lenovo_SATA_Multi3 so the Lite-On update refuses to flash it.
If anyone has a BIN file or unscrambled exe please post it.

Thx!

Here’s the BIN file (3P58):

Hello,

my wife has a compaq notebook which came with this drive. It is identified as A-DS8A2L A. I guess it is an oem drive for compaq/HP.

Anyway, it is crappy!!! It can’t even read its own burns, particularly when the cd is almost full. So I tried to flash it with the liteon drive (using the bin you provided up there) and I came out with a blinking drive!!! So I flashed it back with the saved initial bin!

it’s been a while since I came here (too busy) son can some one remind me how to unscramble a bin firmware?

thanks

Noone can unscramble a nonscrambled .bin file :slight_smile: This looks like a crossflash, so we need your current firmware.

Can anyone PLEASE, please, PLEASE fix it?

It takes forever to rip a disc!!!
