LTC-48161H Read-Speed Patched Firmware
Release date: 27 April 2004
Revision date: 30 April 2004
I am in no way associated with LiteOn, and this patched firmware is in no way
associated with or supported by LiteOn. Loading this patched firmware will
technically void your warranty. I take NO RESPONSIBILITY for anything that may
result from the use or misuse of this patched firmware. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
# Changes between this and the official firmware:
1) +RW/-RW discs will be read at 12x/14x/16x CAV (originally 8x CAV)
2) +R/-R discs will be read at 12x/14x/16x CAV (originally 8x CAV)
Simply run the flasher to load the firmware onto your LTC-48161H.
WARNING: Make sure that you select the correct drive when flashing!
1) There are THREE versions of this patched firmware! One to increase the
reading speed of burnt media to 12x, one to increase it to 14x, and one to
increase it to the full 16x. Use the one what works best for you, your
drive, and your media. Note that with faster reading speeds, it's possible
that your drive will encounter reading problems towards the end of the disc,
which is why it may not always be desirable to read at the full 16x.
1) A word of thanks to C0deKing and The Dangerous Brothers for their support
and help in general.
This patched firmware is based on the official KH0Q firmware from LiteOn.
Changes since the last release: DVD9 is back at 8x, and the burnt media speeds are now available in three varieties.
