Did this drive come in a computer? If so, what brand?

Does it have LightScribe?


#3

That’s an OEM-version of iHBS112.

“Manufactured Date: November 2014” sounds very, very interesting… Firmware dated 2012 and according to version (PP55) it seems it’s not a firmware made for branded computers.

Could you please make a flash dump with DosFlash?

Yeah, I was on this last night and think I got the hang of it, so I can share a bit of what I now know.

If you’re using Windows and you’re not using an SSD (and thus can probably boot into Windows when your motherboard’s SATA controller is in IDE mode) then it should be a pretty straightforward experience. You can get it from this post. You probably also need to run a program that signs the driver used to interface with your Lite On and also disables driver signing validation (also in the above post).

If you’re like me, and can’t boot into Windows in IDE mode and don’t have another SATA controller besides the one your boot drive is on that you could put into IDE mode, then you may have to use the command-line version of DosFlash from an MS-DOS boot disk. Originally I was writing up a post on how to do that here, but I figure it’s a good idea to make it a separate thread. So stay tuned for that, if the relatively automated, straightforward Windows version doesn’t work for you.

Yeah, this is really interesting. I’d like to know what else fitsch has to say on this!

It appears to be a Lenovo part (FRU#45K0487).

Which program did you use?
The file is 2048 KB big and it looks like junk.

with “EEPROM Utility” :confused:


#13

EEPROM Utility normally works. Maybe the USB-SATA bridge prevents any tool from working properly. :frowning:

I guess, from the firmware date & build date, this will be a 2nd generation drive, so no sense in trying Flash Utility, either.
