I'm going to buy a LiteOn iHES112 for BD-R quality scanning. I can choose between 112-29 and 112-115. Which one should I buy?
I know that 112-115 is 2nd gen, so it requires that little trick posted here to start ODC's disc quality scan.
What about the 112-29? Will it be a 1st gen regardless when it was manufactured (I don't know the manufacturing date, just the model number)?
If it is a 1st gen, then ODC should work without the trick. It should come with FW CLOx, right? Two options then:
- Flash to FW PL0x. Is it worthwile?
- Crossflash to Plextor (which model?). Same question again: Is it worthwhile?
And finally: Will any of these two options break the behaviour under ODC, i. e. that disc scanning will function straight away?
Many thanks in advance for any help.
