this drive shows up in device manager as:
"Lite-On Combo SOHC-4836V"
i'm trying to find firmware for it because i've had this issue lately where it takes a few times of me pressing the eject button on the drive before it actually ejects. i've had this similar issue on about 500 other of my machines.
Welcome to CDFreaks Forum.
The sohc-4836v is most likely an oem version of sohc-5236v.
What PC was it delivered with, Dell or ?.
What the current firmware version.
SG$4 it says.
it was delivered with a gateway pc.
not sure if this helps any, but if i hex exit the bin, it shows sony corporation at the bottom.
...ermmm.... hex edit
