MemorexMAX52x, LiteON firmware flash question

Experts,
If I were to purchase the MemorexMAX52x drive and flash the drive with a working LiteON LTR52x firmware, will the MemorexMAX52x drive be able to do “exactly” what the LiteON LTR 52x model. In short, will the MemorexMAX52x beat many audio cd protections as posted at the main site (hardware review).

Yeah. you shouldn’t need to flash it to do all of that though.
