I’ve just bought new DVD-ROM drive for which I tought it is LITE-ON 167t, but when I installed it, I saw that it’s reported just as “DVD-7T16” dvd rom device /without LITE-ON prefix. After a long search on the net I came to conclusion that it is an OEM version of LITE-ON 167t drive, probably the 4KUS brand.
Simple question need simple answer: (Yes/No)
Is it safe to upgrade original Codeguys patched_firmware for genuine LiteOn 167t drive found here 167T.9S19.patched-rs or not? I don’t wish to screw up a brand new drive.
edit: I forget to say that current official FW is 9SG6 (= 4KUS model DVD-7T16 dvd rom).
Thx for answers & Happy Holidays
