How do I convert back my Lite-on DVDRW SHM-165H6S Original firmware?

Hey guys, I recently updated my firmware with HV9N with HT v5.03 on my Lite-On DVDRW SHM-165H6S. I do not like the end result of the firmware
upgrade. My DVD play back looks like crap and shakes etc. etc. When I try to use the downloaded firmware off Lite-On’s website, the software doesn’t see that it’s my drive but yet a different drive. When I go into my computer I see my DVDRW Drive saying that it’s a DVD-RAM Drive. I want to go back to my Original firmware. Please help a/sap! Thank you… :sad:

I’m sorry that the experimental firmware isn’t working well for you. :frowning:

In order to flash back to official firmware, you will need “flashfixed” firmware that doesn’t check the current firmware version on your drive.

You can download such firmware from the codeguys’ website, e.g. the HS0D firmware.

Okay, I was able to convert back to the stock Lite-On firmware thank you!
One other question, What was the benefit from updating the firmware to HV9N with HT v5.03? I’d just like to know for the knowledge base of things.
