Hi, my 1st post here in this section and a new sammy drives owner here.
Just grabbed two of these drives in retail box:
H/W:A Ver.B August 2007
Factory ID: I Made in Indonesia
So far on few burn results on MCC04 are excellent, scanned on BenQ nexperia drive.
Question before I toy with patched firmware, is there a program capable of downloading the firmware “from” the drive ?
The reason is one of my friend just ruined his new S203B after flashed it using a “official & unpatched” SB04, and yes, he did check it 1st with MCSE on the firmware & bootcode rev and was using the correct one.
His drive now unable to burn anything even on a good MCC disc, and really slow on loading any discs dvd/cd. Also unable to recognize any of his DVD-RAM discs that was worked fine before he did that flashing. All of this problems still exist even he reverted back to the official SB01 downloaded from the Samsung ODD site.
Just curious and want to compare whether the built-in original SB01 that came with the drive is exactly the same as the one downloaded from the Samsung official site.
Yes, I’m aware of the risk on flashing a non official firmware and the olde saying “If its not broken, don’t fix it !”, after all where is the fun if we never tweak our ODD.
Thanks in advance.
