Lite On 24102B (5QSB) firmware upgrade? (Compaq OEM)

Is there any firmware upgrade available for this OEM drive or a cracked normal firmware for the 24102B so it doesn’t check the previous firmware revision when trying to upgrade? I am getting coasters when burning, which I hope might be cured by upgrading the firmware. On Compaqs homepage there is no upgrade.

You can flash with MTKFlash. Read OC-Freak’s tutorial first.

Ok. But where can I find the bin-file with only the firmware for this drive? Now it is hidden inside the firmware updater from Lite-On.

Den som söker finner, eller hur ?

firmwares for the 24102B :smiley:

Thx. tack! Does anyone know if it is overclockable too?

It’s not.

You should be able to use a normal Lite-ON windows flasher since 5S5A is considered newer than 5QSB. The only reason it wouldn’t work is if Compaq renamed the drive to something else.

I thought so too, but only: 5S50-5S6Z is updateable it says when I try :frowning:

It worked fine to upgrade it with MTKFlash and latest 5S5A firmware :=)

Excellent! :cool:
