My Presario 8000 came with a built in CD-RW drive that is listed on my system as “Lite-On LTR-48126S”. I cannot flash this drive with newer firmware for Lite-On LTR-48126S from the LiteOn website because it is an OEM model from Compaq (probably because there is no exact match between the type code stored in the drve and in the firmware).
I have firmware 2qs5 and want to upgrade to the newest (2s0g).
Do I need some firmware specifically for the compaq OEM model, or can I just use the firmware from LiteOn with a different flash program? If possible to use a different flash program to force it to flash, is it safe to use the firmware from LiteOn even though I have an OEM model?
