Does anyone know how to open the case on Freecom external DVD writers like the one shown below?
There is a single screw on the rear panel (underneath the warranty void sticker)and it looks like the top unclips.
I’ve just bought one (model code: ILHCAA, 20x speed) and I would like to confirm the identity of the drive inside before crossflashing, and if possible replace the drive with a Samsung.
The existing drive is a Lite-On with Freecom firmware (model RW20J6, firmware 9F51, dated 2007/09/07, boot code 0F5A & Flash ID EF14000E). My best guess is that it is an A4 drive, but I would like make sure.
