Next Generation Drives

#1

From this list (this page) from NTI.

I found these particularly interesting:
LTR-48166K, LTR-48166S, LTR-48246K, LTR-48327K, LTR-48327S, LTR-52326K, LTR-52326S, LTR-52327K, LTR-52327S

Boy oh boy would I love those firmwares! Do any of you know anything about these drives?


#2

LTR-52326K, LTR-52326S

Cool :cool: …means the 6 series mediatek chipset drives should all be flashable to 32x re-write. Now if they could just fix the speed thingie with the 24x re-write. :frowning:

Sony CRX205E1,CRX215E4, CRX220E1, CRX220E2, CRX225E1, CRX500E, CRX510E, CRX700E, CRX800E, CRX810E, CRX820E, CRX830E

I highly doubt that. I really think that they should though. Especially Sony! I want the CRX205E1 firmware. the 500-830 drives are combo or Double-Density drives I think.

and, HERE Alcohol has the “K” listed too.


#6

They’re on roxio’s list too…


#7

I found a German LiteOn FAQ mentioning the LTR-52326S, too:


Does it belong to a CD Freaks member?


#8

I suspect that the S and W may refer to the manufacturing facility. All of my S drives were made in China, the one W that I have was Taiwan. Maybe each plant initially used one type of chip and that’s where the designation came from, but now the chip availability has changed?

makes sense.


#10

@diggn: I’ve translated a part of the FAQ for de.comp.hardware.laufwerke.brenner (“dchlb”) (somewhen when OC was still here).

There, someone has done a copy+paste…nothing to be taken serious!

I was sent a LTR-48246K firmware that was extracted from a drive sold in Poland.
