New LiteOn SOHW-832S Firmware: VS03

I just posted the article New LiteOn SOHW-832S Firmware: VS03.

  salatiel and jan70 used our     news  submit  to tell us A new LiteOn SOHW-832S Firmware is  available: VSO3. For the 832S"s owner it's good to have a "match more media".

hmm… what can I say… IMPRESSIVE changelog! :):):slight_smile:

All I can say is check the forums to realise the full impact, for instance- “I bought the cheap Fujifilm03 8x media with my drive and with the default firmware, the drive only burns to this media at 4x. I contacted Lite-On and they promptly emailed me asking for a smartburn screenshot of the info for the disc. I sent that off and the next day a new firmware was available!”

The same is with the 8x media from Verbatim, with previous firmware it was only able to be burnt with 4x, with new you are able to burn it at 8x… Although I need to say that I used speedhack tool so I was also able to burn 8x verbatim at 8x with VS01… :slight_smile:

Indeed, VS01 was somewhat buggy, and overall, VS03 offers a significant improvement. It’s most certainly not just a simple matter of “match more media”.
