Forcably flash a SDW-200D to Sony DW-U50A

I’ve got a LiteOn SDW-200D. However the drive is a Sony DW-U50A (Strange for a LiteOn product). Is there any way to forcably flash the sony 1.5f firmware? Can’t find a way to do this.

My plan was to extract the firmware from the 1.5f-setup execuatable and place it in a sdw-200d flash upgrade utility. Two problems here, can’t extract the flash from the sony 1.5f setup, two, no firmware upgrades exist for the sdw-200d.

So ANY tips would be greatly appr.


Sony’s firmware flashing programs are encrypted, so good luck with that. You could send a polite email requesting help from The Dangerous Brothers.
