Just had a LiteOn SOHW-1633S fall into my lap yesterday and wanted to get some opinions. Think I am going to need to flash the drive, previous owner never flashed it once.
My first question is hardware related. Currently own a NEC 1300A, which continues to work great and it is hooked up on my SIL 0680 Controller on the Master/Secondary Channel. Thought I would replace my plane LiteOn DVD-ROM which is Slaved to the NEC with this 1633S. Bad idea?
As for flashing, a bit confused. First I need to get LtnFW then pick a firmware. Is the CS0P firmware from http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares.html#SOHW-1653S the way to go? LtnFW have any problems flashing to a drive connected to the SIL 0680 Controller?
Any advice would be appreciated. The only known problem with the drive is that it no longer reading DVD9/DVD Flipper Discs. Doubt flashing the drive will fix but who knows.
