New Lite-On DVD Burner: iHAS120



Ladies and gentleman, Lite-ON just brought out a new DVD Burner: iHAS120!

This is an internal SATA drive. The specs is just almost the same as 20A1/A3 series.

Currently you can only found it at Lite-ON Taiwan website. The English spec can be downloaded at here

A firmware of this drive, version 7L04 is also available for download.

After unpacked the firmware and dig inside, I found this is an A6 drive :cool:


Whoops! New model numbering scheme. We knew already an A8 was coming, but not yet an A6 ;). Thanks, Skylon!


which OPU does it use?


Here is the first guess for the MID table.

which OPU is in this new drive?


You must buy this burner, to know the OPU. But this burner isn´t available.

Just got this mode (HAS120) from TigerDirect. Running it now on Vista 7 and Vista (er…6 I guess). V7 is actually more stable than V6 and they took out all the pre-production code (which was what bloated v6 so much and killed your hard drive) so it runs very nicely on 2gb of RAM. However, seems like it could really use a new set of chipset drivers for optimization (hello, NVIDIA/ATI/INTEL… any day now, it’s at the semi-public beta level).

Tell me what to do or run to get the info you want (OPA, etc.). I don’t know enough (like about nothing) to even know what you’re talking about, but I’m more than literate in computers so no need to guide me. I’m an EE so I’ve flashed (way back to ) UV-PROMs of my own code (assembler: the best code you’ll ever write that will burn your system up the first time you run it because you jumped off by 01h in an offset).

Anyway, seems great so far, but having writing/reading problems, so might try a flash if it needs it. Latest firmware on lite-on site is 7L0E. We’ll see if that helps.

Thanks for all the expertise guys(gals).
