Lite-On LH-20A1P - Post your scans here

May I present to you, the LITEON LH-20A1P.
Got it from a local (Malaysia) PC Fair just yesterday.
The LH-20A1P was lauched alongside with the LH-18A1P.

So far it has been a pretty darn good burner, even with the el-cheapo 4x and 8x DVD+R media I have.
Read speed is definitely faster compared with my late Benq 1640 (went bad two weeks ago, after bought for 1 year & 1 month).

The drive still works with LtnRPC 1.0.0.

Included some scanning as well, but do pardon the average scores because of the no-name media used. But the LH-20A1P did performed on-par if not better (especially in terms of read speed and burn quality) than my late Benq 1640.

“Sky” DVD-R 8x@12x,
TYG03,
7:24 min.
SB: On,
HT: On,
OS: On

Though it is DVD-R, it shows Disc Type: DVD-ROM. I have the enabled the
Overly “hardworking” booktype setting maybe? Thought booktype settings only works on +R/RW media?





Thanks for uploading the firmware. Here is my first guess for the media code list:

CMC MAG AM3@20X
First burn… :wink:



Hey Worker,
Did you actually buy one of these or did you crossflash a 18A1P?

Thanks for the dl and wowee, even CMC at 20x… :slight_smile:

Nice, how much isit in RM? I hope JB PC Show got sell. thanks

The d/l link seems to give me corrupted file, can someone upload direct to cdfreaks? thanks

hope TS doesn’t mind, mod pls delete if he does. Oops, too large a file, over freaks size limits.

Thanks weeluvmal. :slight_smile: The file does appear to be corrupted now. :frowning:

Can someone please email this file to me. :flower:

See the contact page on my site for the email address. Thanks.

Perfect. Maybe we can see some sales on cheaper 16x media soon :iagree:
(I mean, MCC 004 and YUDEN000 T03 are good enough to survive 20x burning, but I wonder why MCC is not in the list.)

MBI R05 @ 20X?? Yikes…

Check yr email :bigsmile:

In Penang PC Fair, it was going for RM150 from the authorized service center booth.
but i got mine for RM142 + one 2.4x +R DL at one of the retailer booth.

Wah, the price is just so cool. :clap: Full retail boxed version?

Yup, full retail boxed with 1 year warranty, heard that they are launching this nationwide in this Dec pc fair.

Btw, for those who was looking for alternative links, here they are.

http://www.paid4load.de/getfile.php?id=35377
http://www.freefileupload.net/file.php?file=files/021206/1165061583/KL02.bin

Tried to upload it to CDFreak site but the file are either format not supported or too large in size.

File was extracted from the LH-20A1P with Flash Utility 2.0.0.

MCC isn’t even included at 18X on the LH-18A1P (only with OverSpeed). I suppose Lite-On and Verbatim don’t get along very well these days?

Here’s the EEPROM dump everyone been longing for. Enjoy…

Attachment removed (I don’t want people reflashing their EEPROM to use this firmware, as it is too dangerous and it may damage their drive. Each EEPROM has factory calibration data that is unique to each drive.).

20X nice…

Sorry not quite a full burn.
