#1

Just got mine today :slight_smile:

The Firmware revision is ZS08

If anyone wants this firmware, just let me know. lol, on second thought, tell me how to extract a copy of the Firmware, cause I have never done this before :slight_smile:


#2

If you feel confortable using DOS and are not afraid to try this, you can extract the firmware in BIN format using MKTFlash

Make a system (bootable) floopy then copy MTKFLASH.EXE to it and reboot with the floopy in the diskette drive.

The command line format is:
MTKFLASH.EXE <IDE port - 3 is for Secondary Master> /R <this is to Read the firmware> /B:<This is for Backing up the firmware, type the FILENAME.BIN yopu want it to have>

Typing MTKFLASH.EXE /? gives the full list of options without executing anything, if you want to know more. For example, the /W parameter lets you flash the drive with a BIN file…

HTH :slight_smile:

PS: Tell us first how it burns by making a simulation in CD Speed 2000 - That’ll tell us if it burns PCAV or if it’s still ZCLV!


#3

Ok thanks for the info!

Just to make sure though, when I do this command, is it safe? i.e. it just basically reads and makes a copy?

And I’ll do that speed simulation here shortly!

Edit: Oops! Where exactly do I find CD Speed 2000? Did a Google search, though it finds results,I only see a link to download CD Speed 99?


#4

Well, did the test with CP Speed 99 and it says Z-CLV.


#5

Some more info…

Wrote a 650MB+ file @ 40x on a TDK 24x (CMC Magnetics) CD.

I’m having loads of fun so far!


#6

You can donwload cdspeed here. Current version is 0.85e (although the page says something different)
And reading with MTKFlash is absolutely safe.
I got my LTR-40125 with Firmware ZS03 and have updated to ZS0A. Never heard of ZS08 before.


#7

mine was also equipped with zs08, already upgraded to zsoa, now waiting for zs0d!


#8

I think we will immediately get informed here, when Liteon finally releases ZS0D. :cool:
Hopefully OC-Freak will expand his firmware-section with firmware for our beloved 40125S - that one is still missing. Anybody here, who is able to cancel his holidays? :stuck_out_tongue:
