LITE-ON SHW160P6S05 Latest Firmware?

LITE-ON 16X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE Model SHW160P6S05

Hey fella’s,
It’s late, I’ve been looking for a while with no luck for the SHW160P, everything I find starts with SHW160H … I have two of these drives I bought 4 months ago from newegg, and I need to update the firmware to support a MINIMUM of bitsetting/booktype settings of DVD-ROM, and also set RPC1 ( region free ) would be nice, and any other nifty features you guys advise,

I’m going to be testing backing up my xbox360 games and I have THREE different types of DVD burners…

LITE-ON SHW160P6S05 ( had for 4 months )
NEC ND-3550A ( had for 4 months )
PIONEER 111D ( everyone recommended )

This is my first time / virgin expirence updating firmware’s for dvd’ drives, and I think I have all the needed tools for the NEC drives, I got binflash 1.31 and Dee’s 1.Y6 ( based on Liggy’s 1.06bt ) firmware, if there is better, please tell me ! I like to go full out!

But What do I need for my LITE-ON SHW160P6S05 since binflash was only for NEC drives and I only found NEC drivers yet, The pioneer’ flashing is for tommorow!

Thanks In Advance!

You can download all the official firmwares for LiteOn drives here.

The latest official firmware for the SHW-160P6S is PS0A, and you can download it from this direct link if you want.

The download is a Zip file containing the firmware wrapped in a firmware flasher, so you don’t need any other tools for flashing.

oh my god, you are a god! lol, thanks bro, you really took all the possible error mistakes out of it!!

Dude you rock, lol… this forum is huge, thought i’d never find it! and google wasn’t much help, it wouldn’t even return lite-on in the top ten results, i completetly forgot about the IT part of the brand name!

One more question… everyone I’m hearing from on other forums, xbox360 forums, say that default firmware usually isn’t the best… what UNOFFICIAL firmware will do things like remove RPC1, riplock, and especially change bitsetting to dvd-rom for ALL kinds of media, single layer and dual layer + media at least? Is unofficial firmware possibly the same thing as illegal firmware?

I see in your profile you have a Lite-On drive that is CLOSE or maybe the same as mine, and your firmware is MV9N HT 5.03 ? Is that the latest unofficial firmware and do you recommend it or what specialities does your burner have over a original firmware?

thanks again! ( only got 4 hours of sleep last night ) lol…

you can disable the region protection with LtnRPC: http://dhc014.rpc1.org/LtnRPC/

riplock can’t be removed (yet), but the test firmware offers higher speeds than the official one.
download [I][B]P[/B]V9N with HT v5.03[/I] here: http://www.savefile.com/projects.php?pid=720118

for bitsetting use the official liteon booktype utility: http://www.liteonit.com/DOWNLOADS/utilities/BookType135.zip

i think it’s illegal to disassemble and edit the firmware, but it may be legal to use it…

oh ok great, what’s the latest and greatest UNOFFICIAL firmware for this drive as well? I think I’m more into the unofficial stuff since I hate limits that official’s put on things! lol…

I downloaded this file for my burner and installed. It shows programming and install 100%. It has been sitting like this for about 10minutes. Not sure what to do cause I am wooried I might mess something up. Any help?

close the flasher (via taskmanager) and reboot. check then if your drive’s firmware was updated.

Rebooted an downloaded file again. Worked this time. Thanks.

cool, glad you got it working!

Anyone have any advice on unofficial firmware for this drive to make it “better” hehehe… or just use the above is all can be done?

Hi everyone.

I have a question and im sorry if this is going over old ground.
I bought an xbox 360 yesterday so im assuming its the lite-on drive. what exactly do i have to do if i want to play back-ups on this sytem.
I have read a bit on the web, but still dont fully understand.
I dont want to solder anything and would prefer to flash the drive.
From what i understand its more complicated with the newer drives and therefore would you reccomend me not attempting it being a complete a novice to this sort of stuff?
I would appreciate any advice or feedback, is it is as simple as downloading the links above plugging the drive in to my pc and downloading the firmware? im not bothered about xbox live

I would try using the search function here and typing in xbox360, there’s lots of info

Welcome to CDFreaks! :slight_smile:

I’m using PSOA firmware with no problems.
Should I update to the latest which I believe is PSOC?
Thanks
