Liteon Slimtype COMBO LSC-24081M (internal firmware

Hello, I’ve gone to liteon’s website, but they only have the external firmware for this and that doesn’t match. Maybe it’s been discontinued but surely I must be able to get it from somewhere because I can’t get this to read DVD-Rs though I can get it to read proper DVDs as well as CD-Rs so I assumed I needed to update firmware.

Looks like I must’ve misflashed my drive and therefore I need the file in .bin.

Have a look here. http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=1431

You should be able to use firmware from external drive.

Reflash the drive with newest firmware. No need for file in .bin.

Try the unreadable dvd-r in an other drive. Could be one bad disc.

Well the thing is my computer’s not seeing the drive even though it gets past boot-up without reporting anything about a drive being missing on secondary master so I know that the connections are right. I had this problem with another drive and to get past the problem I found a .bin file and just reflashed it with MTKFlash. I can’t seem to find any .bin files for this drive from looking briefly. It seems that if I were to try it on another computer the problem would go away but I can’t because other isn’t laptop.

Thanks just flashed it in DOS then reflashed it again in Windows with the newest firmware and it’s now resurrected. It still won’t read DVD-Rs though despite trying several and I don’t know why that is. Perhaps it’s just defective but at least it’s going now compared to what it was before. I’d like to thank you for helping me and goodbye
