LiteOn LTR-52246S question?

Is there anyway to know what firmware comes with the drive before purchasing it? Because CloneCd supported writers page says firmware 6S02, and the reason I ask is because I am leary about flashing the firmware because if it doesen’t work and for some reason I can’t flash back then I have a hosed drive that I can’t even return.

6S02 is what it originally shipped with.

Relax.

I flashed my drive up to 6S07 and CloneCD runs just as well as it did before.

And as long as u are using an official firmware upgrade u should be covered on the warranty.

I updated to the 6s08 firmware on 18 Dec 2002 and all is well. Clone CD runs fine, as does Nero etc.

Really? Thanks, Creative would not honour that when a flash went bad for me a while ago
