HowTo? flash back to earlier firmware? SHM-165H6S

Hi, please help! - My LiteOn SHM-165H6S08C drive is no longer working after upgrading the firmware from version HS07 to version HS0E.

Now my drive does not see the contents on some CDs, but does on others.

If the drive does see the files on a CD, the files do not copy successfully from the CD to my hard drive (WinXP) - some files copy slowly but the PC hangs when others copy.

I tried to flash the EEPROM back to version HS07 but I get an error that says:
No matched drive detected !
This utility is only for LITE-ON DVDRW SHM-165H6S drive.
Detected drive: 1-0-0-0 E:LITE-ON DVDRW SHM-165H6S HS0E

I have tried re-flashing it with version HS0E. This completes without errors, but the drive does still not work.

How can I flash the drive back to an earlier firmware version?
And where can I get earlier firmware versions?


Since HS0E is newer than HS07, original LO updater won’t allow flashing an older firmware onto the drive. You’ll need to get a flashfixed firmware from the codeguys’ site. It’s unlikely that firmware versions would cause problems with transferring files.

Thanks for the pointer - I used the HS06 flashfix from CodeGuys and it is working now.
