[QUOTE=bobmitch;2494298]Thanks for the fileshare url. However, when I try to download…I get an error due to too many people downloading from fileshare. It then prompts me to pay for a subscription. Thanks anyways…guess I’ll pass on this drive and keep searching for one that can rip at 8X or higher.[/QUOTE]

I would not give up that easily You won’t find many other drives which can reliably scan Blu-Rays I’m afraid.
Sorry I just realised that your drive is an iHES108 not an iHAS208 as mine (lightscribe version). I should have paid a bit more attention :o
In your case, what you can do is to use the unscrambled firmware from C0deKing’s website (7L07), patch it and then flash it to the drive.
You should also install SmartPack and if LiteON has released any firmware update for this drive, the utility will find it and download it for you. You can then use the official update to flash the drive with the updated version, then create a dump of the new firmware using the Flash Utility, then use MCSE to patch this dump for 8x read (tick the increase speed box) and then flash back the patched version using again the Flash utility… after that there’s only one more thing to do: Enjoy!
