I picked up the Liteon iHBS212 this week and it came with 5L03 FW on the drive. I have been using it quite a bit with some of my stock older Verbatim 8x and original TDK TTH02 media that I use for all my important backups and I was not happy with the burn quality.
I ran the Liteon Smartpack utility but it did not find any updates and nothing exists on any of the various Liteon sites I could find. After searching in these forums I found 5L06 on firmwarehq and flashed the drive. In my opinion for what I am doing it is a little worse than the original so I went to flash 5L03 back on the drive and the installer does not like the drive. I am guessing something changed in the ID string or it just does not want to downgrade the version.
Can someone help point me to some tools or firmware for this drive that will allow me to reflash the orignal firmware?
