[QUOTE=Skylon;1966982]Another tip for you, you can flash it to a 20A1P/20A4P by changing the drive model with EEPROM Utility ;)[/QUOTE]
I have also me PBDS_DH-16A1P_RF11 writer and I want update firmware to LITEON WL08 too, but don’t run.
I have readed different informations on this procedure on forum, also this, but I have lots problems to do it.
Can someone explain better the correct procedure to a beginner new member as me in order to complete with success the change to Liteon firmware, please? Thanks
I have done a backup of original EEPROM nad its firmware to BIN file.
The writer’s jum is on MASTER of secondary IDE channel.
Then I have used the program EEprom 3.8.3 and choosed:
“CrossFlash --> Upgrade Drive” and I select 16A1P + DW1680 option
(In the writer there is a blank CD but proved also with blanks DVD-R)
Then this, the program tells me “Drive conversion completed successfully” and shows me with arrows (Current model 16A1P + DW1680).
I have reboot my system and then I run the original firmware “WL08.exe” under Windows2000 and program shows me the advise:
“No matched drive detected! This utility is only for LITE-ON DVDRW LH-16A1P drive” infact the drive in not coverted and is always PBDS_DH-16A1P_RF11 !!
I have proved again with firmware WL08 FB-EON patched but same error.
Where is my error?
How can I do now?
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
Ps.: I have also open equal object in new thread into “firmware” session.
