Identify dvd burner (acer aspire desktop)



Hi all,

I purchased an acer aspire sa85 desktop machine approx 1 month ago, and it has a dual layer dvd burner in it however I have been unable to work out who actually made the drive, the only info I have is what i got from the nero infotool. Could anyone help me to work out who made the drive please.

With googles help I found this . You should hope that it is that Lite-On. The only other thing that google found was a possible A-Open match :Z .


Thanks jhtalisman for your quick reply… I did search google myself but must have been using the wrong search terms, I’ve looked at the link you gave me, but still a little unsure will have to investigate a little further.



a google search of the firmware version, & it looks to be an A-Open, which, it could be a rebadged lite-on


Thanks all for your help I found out it was actually an Aopen DU1616L Pro… just reflashed it with new firmware and its still fine…

So thanks everyone, greatly appreciated
