I was wondering how i can back my eeprom up and if i want to restore how do i this? thanks

You need this tool. Be very careful when you use it. If you damage your eeprom before you get a backup, then your drive will be dead. Also make sure, that you select the right drive from the drop down list.

I used that program, went to read and saved my eeprom. Just wondering it had sony corporation in the eeprom, what does have to do with it?

Sony has owned a large chunk of LiteOn for some time. Now they own all of it.

sony owns liteon ??
