I just bought the benq 4816p drive. Upon going to the benq website for firmware updates the only firmware available was the 4816A, i succesfully flashed using the 9.HH.

4816P
A.YZ
48X CD-R, 16X CD-RW , 48X Reading, firmware A.xZ series

4816A
9.HH
There are two different model of 4816A, ( 48X CD-R, 16X CD-RW ) 9.xH and 9.xK , this firmware only suit to 9.xH series

9.CK
There are two different model of 4816A, ( 48X CD-R, 16X CD-RW ) 9.xH and 9.xK , this firmware only suit to 9.xK series

Is this a Asus drive? I would like to oc the drive to a 5224P or if it a rebadged lite-on (not likely) flash to that… Any one got info??

(ps i have searched the forums…)

No, it’s not an OEM at all.

So it is just the same model designation?

yes, benq makes their own drives.

Thanks for the prompt replies, I am going to extract the fw to compare it to some others and will post it if it goes OK, I might just try to flash to 52x if it dies i will try to recover or return to store!!
