You have to find out if your drive is a 24102B or a 24103S.

If it is 24103S, then you can upgrade using XSU1.

Thank you.

But how to find this out? is there any software to use it to find out which Firmware is in my drive a 24102B or a 24103S?

with best regards

Use mtkflash to extract your current firmware.

If it is 256 kBytes: 24102B
If it is 512 kBytes: 24103S


thank you for your reply.

So I used the MTKFLASH to read the Firmware from my MEMOREX 24MAXX.

MTKFLASH 4 R /M old.bin

it was very good and I found out that this file is 552KB

It is 512 kBytes: 24103S

I used the XSU1 to upgrade…

It flashed all Banks from 0-7

I rebootde and then the green Led was all of the time on.

My bios didn’t show any drive on the secondary slave.

Then I flashed the old Firmware again without any problem.

Now I’d like to now if there any way to make my 24MAXX as 32 Burner.

May I try to flash the other Firmware for 24102B?


You could try a 32123S firmware (that would be XS0X).

An unlikely possibility is that your writer has a 512 kB flash memory, but only uses 256 kB thereof and is indeed 2-chipset. But I don’t believe in this…
