Firmware BSG3 from 4KUS for 1633

Can someone kindly unscramble this firmware?

2004 / 11 / 11 Match More Media

Thanks
A.

Never even heard of this drive,

Will be interesting to see if it works any better than the BSOK

4KUS in Taiwan sells Lite-On OEM drives.

http://www.4kus.com.tw/download.htm

Not very creative and not very up to date. It’s probably the same as BS0G or BS0H.

It’s not very creative because 4KUS is owned by LiteOn and is LiteOn’s “generic” brand. The 4KUS webserver actually has the same IP address as LiteOn’s webserver.

Anyway, Kenny is right. This firmware is based on an older “standard” firmware version. It is older than BS0K, and its media support is not as good as BS0K’s. I don’t see any reason to use this firmware instead of BS0K.

4KUS drives show up in Germany as “Speer”, normally before the official LiteOn versions.

G

The latest “Speer” branded drives in Germany, is just an ordinary Liteon drive in a different cardboard box. The firmware is the same used on the Liteon’s.

We made a preview of the Speer DL 16834 back in September this year, and can be found here.

BTW: The drives are being official announced early in Speer’s online shop, but you need to wait around 4 weeks or more, before they are ready to be delivered.
