When I get time I will try to find it in my archives, host it and post a link. Hopefully it still works with the new generation of drives…[/QUOTE]

A lot of people are still waiting for it.

"I was expecting a bit more interest when I came back here today. Perhaps no one is interested in the enhanced version. Oh well… "

Don’t worry we all like seeing you back here.


#123

^ Indeed. It just takes people a little while to visit; the effect isn’t as immediate as it used to be. :wink:


#124

Thanks more like it. :slight_smile: Good to be back for a bit, but even better to see people (cdfreaks) still here, having fun. :cool:

Ibex, thanks, member since 2006, almost 10 years! :clap:
Jadburner, 10000+ posts and still posting scans. Great job! :clap:
and everyone else, thanks, you made this happen. :clap:

I’ll post the enhanced version in the Eeprom Utility thread. Don’t let me down by not posting back here. I’ll look forward to hearing what success everyone has with it.


#125

Thank you C0deKing!


#126

Welcome back, COdeKing! Another hearty thanks!

And a long-time lurker before then.

Took me 4 years to pluck up the courage to join (one of my biggest regrets in life, I missed out on so much fun!). :o

A message to all the other optical disc faithful out there:

[B]Keep calm and burn on![/B]

Your T02 will probably be readable long after the last electron has escaped its NAND trap. :iagree:

The polycarbonate disc shall come again!

[B]C0deKing[/B], thank you very much for enhanced version! :clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:

EEPROM Utility V6.2.0 SE works perfectly and seamlessly with the second generation of design BluRay PLD-LiteOn DH-12B2LH plus OEM and clones :iagree:
[B]@ C0deKing[/B] you are great :clap::bow:

DH-12B2SH for crossflashing for Plextor, asked for help and have this answer:

But I don’t understand what Albert replied “any compatible iHBS112 or 312 variant” means:

[QUOTE=Albert;2765547](Yes, it can crossflash to any compatible iHBS112 or 312 variant)[/QUOTE]

And I found there are several Plextor firmware on the first thread:

Which one is compatible with the drive I have or all of the above? My first time crossflashing, I am a bit nevus.:confused:

Like myself you should flash the PX-B950SA second generation firmware 1.04. :wink: (I assume your drive is manufactured in 2014 as well? Should be on the label.)
The LB drives have light scribe, but the 112/DH12B2SH drives come without the ability, so no sense in using such firmware.

Was crossflashed to PX-LB950SA before, now flashed the PX-B950SA firmware instead, thanks for reminding me.

[QUOTE=harryytm;2765564]Crossflashed to PX-LB950SA, thanks for all the help.:sad:

Now I can play with PlexUtility.:cool:[/QUOTE]


#133

I know it goes against the usual conventions, but I don’t have much to lose so I’ll just ask: Anyone have a good EEPROM dump of a 212? Mine suddenly decided it didn’t want to recognize any media. I realize it’s probably the laser but seeing as how it isn’t working anyway, flashing someone else’s EEPROM can’t hurt.


#134

First or second generation?
You can not replace Eeprom for rev.1 and rev.2
I should have both types of Eeprom.

The biggest Sanyo SF-BW512L laser for exchange. I’ve seen $ 80 a piece lately.
Check the flex tape. They like to take off and not to plug the laser with the motherboard.


#135

The 112 is Gen 2, the 212 is Gen 1.


#136

Posted on PW Eprom from two copies I have LiteOn iHBS 212 rev.1


#137

Replaced the laser on the 212 with a presumably new one purchased off eBay and…still nothing :frowning:


#138

There is only damage to the chipset or motherboard.
It can be postponed to check the motherboard with all open-close module but you need to dismantle the whole drive.
Easier lasers to see if they work in the second model you have - Liteon iHBS 112
Will it be known, though, whether the lasers are efficient and working?


#139

Thx for all the work and files here.
I have now converted my drive TEAC 512 Pt11 into a IHBS112.
And also testet to burn a 5x DVD-Ram i didnt now that the teac firmware have disabled that option.

Does the Firmware from the iHBS 312 is anything different to IHBS112?
I cant read the firmware 321.bin file for mediacode information with the “ala tool”.


#140

Thanks for you guys sharing. I have crossflashing my asus bw12b1st. 1.03 to ihbs 112.
Though,it can’t read or write Panasonic 25gb (MEI-T02).QQ

I have bought a liteon dh12b2sh . Its firmware is PE21. LIKE THIS.
https://imgur.com/gallery/eOY0uXU
It appeals ATAPI BD B DH12B2SH PE21.
Do you guys have met this model?
Can I cross it into DH12B2SH PE21 into PP55?
Thanks you guys a lot.
You guys are so cool!!

Hello, good evening.

Is it possible to share the PX-B950SA Firmwares as a Binarie again?

Thanks in Advance…
