I found rpc1 firmware for liteon ihas324w from liggy's. the drive is not optiar so i'm assuming pio mode is not required when flashing. liggy's blog says "The LiteOn firmwares require certain bootcodes to be present on the drive. Binflash will refuse flashing if the driveâ€™s bootcode does not match the expected bootcode."
binflash indeed refuses to flash. yet I still don't know what this writing means. where do I get this expected bootcode? and how to update bootcode? anyone knows?
and the ihas324 w drive I have has firmware HL1A
