Hi, all.

I am looking for the HL-DT-ST CT30F’s firmware. I could not find the firmware…

DELL provides CT30N. CT30N looks like same spec with CT30F, i suppose these hardware are same… someone knows the information?

I would be so happy if someone kindly gives me the information.

This seems to be a combo drive (blu ray reader, and dvd burner), in a laptop. Which manufacturer made the laptop?

The drive itself is made by LG, but laptop drives often have proprietary firmware, and you have to go through laptop manufacturer to get new firmware. And often times, there is simply isn’t new firmware available.

Hi, Kerry56!

Thanks for giving me the information!

I just bought this drive, not laptop with this drive. I suppose this drive comes from LG but not 100% sure since no package when I bought it. It is packaged with a plastic bag but it is not a second hand one.

I could not find this drive’s information neither hitachi, LG, HLDS. Firmware revision is YT04.

Possibly I can dump its firmware with DevilsClaw’s Flasher, tweak it with MCSE and then write it back to the drive. Not 100% sure it is safe though…

From entries here, it has also been seen with YT05 - but no luck at all.

Drive also seems to appear a lot as a spare for Toshiba, but not found it there either!

I could not find YT05 too… Thanks anyway. I will dump YT04 with “flasher.exe” for MCSE.
