Is upgrade to dual layer possible?

Hi all,

Is it possible to upgrade a Lite-On 411S using a firmware flash to support dual layer writing mode or is it possible only with the 811S?

Aquarius. :slight_smile:

I am afraid its not possible for either of them. :slight_smile:

Actually its not possible (available is rather better) for any of the single layer drives now in the market.

I hear rumors that the newest generation of Liteon single layer…may at some point be possible to upgrade…because same hardware in the drive…but both 411’s and 811’s have hardware that is different from the upcoming dual layer drives.

Ssseth and others in the Liteon forum have abit to say on this…:slight_smile:


Thx for the replies. Is it too early to go opt for a dual layer DVD writer now? :confused:
Also, do u think that this dual-layer thing is just a passing fad or is it here to stay, so i know that it won’t turn out to be a BetaMax investment.


the earliest dual layer burners are supposed to come out by the end of april. i’m not sure what you mean by fad, as dual layer isn’t some kind of competing format against single layer like betamax was against vhs.
