Liteon iHAS124, iHAS324 F (DH24AF)



Yep, the PIF-cluster is not nice, but your combination seems to have not the problem of very bad burning at the begin of the media.

Where is your media made?


The media was made in Taiwan.


Like my actual MCC 004, I´m not sure whether it´s only the media or is the iHBS better with it than actual LiteOn-DVD-drives


When were these made?


Sep 2018.


That´s real surprising, my 2017-media is much more worse


Looks like Vinpower announced new drive firmware to fix MCC 004 quality issue.

Change Log:
• Finetune Verbatim 16x DVD+R Media (MCC 004)
• Further Improve Drive Stability in extreme conditions


Thank you, I will try this soon


I recently bought a new iHAS124 F and it arrived with firmware CL9N. Is this the latest? PLDS SmartPack Utility finds no newer firmware to download.


I guess Smartpack don´t support any newer drives or LiteOn don´t offer FW-Updates for older drives. My oldest 124F have CL9J and never gets an update, my newer 124F have CL9M, same

Don´t know what LiteOn do, newer x24F come with newer FW, but dunno if there anything is changed.

Besides, 324F, at least the one I have are some versions behind, still on CL8x


I think PLDS SmartPack Utility works for older drives (if they don’t already have the latest firmware). It’s for newer drives that is not working.


Can´t remember which the last working drive was, maybe my x24C?
