#1

just posted this to tell u that there is new firmware out for tha lite-on 24x10x40 (24102b)

My question is that if i use this will i still be able to copy any safe disk v2 game out there?

firmware version 5S59 :slight_smile:


#2

yeah, i wanna know this too!
however ive already upgraded, so if it doesn’t its too late! :slight_smile:

regards,
Br@yza!

I don’t know about safedisc 2, but with this firmware and clonecd 4 beta 30 I was able to copy my only copy protected audio cd, Gregorian Masters of Chant Chapter II without any problems. It has Key2Audio in it.

With previous firmware, i couldn’t do it. I was only able to rip tracks to my hard drive with EAC. Sadly I don’t have right now anything else copyprotected cd’s in my house. So my tests are very limited :wink:


#4

do u know if it can copy catus data sheild with new firmware to?


#5

I have no idea. I wish it would do the trick. Sadly I have no cactus data shield protected cd’s. As I said, my tests are very limited :wink:
Only that one key2audio cd…

yeah? Not that id want to at the moment, cause 5s59 seems so good, but just say i did, how would i go about doin that?

You would boot into DOS and then flash the FirmWare with DOS5S07.EXE …!

But this MUST be done from DOS, not a DOS prompt.
So you need a boot disk with CD-ROM support.

I dunno If mktflash can do the same thing btw.

well when was your drive manufactured? mine was made in dec 2001

so you think it will work? (5S59) :slight_smile:


#11

can I flash straight from 5s54 > 5s59 or do I need to step up to 5s07 first

                  cheers

#12

You can flash to 5S59 from any 5S?? version :wink:


#13

hey oc freak is it safe to flash to newest firmware?
will it still be able to backup safe disk v2 games?


#14

Haven’t tested SD2 yet but else it seems great.

Probably will work just nice since it’s chipset dependant if a drive will do Correct EFM encoding.


#15

ok i will probably flash it but if something goes wrong can i flash back to 5s57? if so send me a link to tha file i will need to flash it back to older version.

thanks :slight_smile:


#16

thanx oc-freak
any chance someone in the know can put this new firmware
through it’s paces…
let us know if there are any pitfalls


#17

I use the lastest firmwire.

I’ve made backups of both Global Operations and The Sims: Vacation and they works great.
Both games have SD2 protection. I’ve a LTR-24102B.

CLONYXXL FAILS WITH CDS200 DETECTIONS.
I’VE GOT THE NATALIE IMBRUGLIA CD “WHITE LILIES ISLAND” WHICH IS PROTECTED BY CACTUS DATASHIELD 200!!!
MY LITE-ON 24102B 5S59 SAYS IT’S KEY2AUDIO PROTECT!

WHIT CLONECD OR FEURIO IT FAILS TO COPY! EVEN IN EAC EXTRACTION!

I’VE GOT THE LITE-ON 24102B 5S54 BUILD DEC 2001

AND I KNOW THAT IT CAN’T BE DOWNGRADE TO 5S07 FIRMWARE!
DON’T DO IT! IT MAKES THE UNIT LOCKS UP WITH THE ORANGE LED ALWAYS LIGHT ON!!

I SAVED IT WITH MTKFLASH AND 5S54 FIRMWARE!

MTKFLASH WITH BINARY FILES OF 5S57 AND 5S59 MAKES MY LITE-ON 24102B TO NOT WRITE ANYMORE EVEN IF IT CAN READ ALL AS 8WELL IT DID IT BEFORE!
I’M GOING TO ASK YOU IF SOMEONE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM EVEN TO DOWNGRADE FIRMWARE!

SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH! I’M ITALIAN!
