Lite On LTR-40125W and SD 2.8

Is it possible to create working SD 2.8 backups using the LTR-40125W? it worked fine with 2.7 but stopped working with 2.8.
even working 2.7 game that got 2.8 update no longer works
ie: divine divinity.
Should I update firmware? or is only the newer models of lite on able to burn safedisc 2.80?
thanks for your help

Yes, it is possible. I made a backup of my MOHAAS protected with SD2.80.010 with my 40125 - works fine.
Which firmware do you use? And which software did you use to backup which game?

No problem with that writer. See here.
