[QUOTE=Cressida;2021674]Thanks Skylon, it may be best to have this in a new thread? Here’s my two drives:
LH-18A1H (November 2006) - very bad 8X scanning, high jitter reading
Blue sticker: 0 0 K
Black sticker: 6008K3-26 / DS10HLF G / DKB313IGS
DSW2012PA = DH20A4P (September 2007) - came with 9P53"A" firmware
Blue sticker: 0 0 O
Black sticker: 7727K5-48 / DS17LV1 H / C0970F9BC[/QUOTE]
Thanks [B]Cressida [/B] and [B]j999d[/B] for the feedback. Three of the drives appear to use Sanyo OPU.
18A1H is using Sanyo SF-DS10
20A4P “A” is using Sanyo SF-DS17
j999d’s LH-20A1P is using Sanyo SF-DS10.
Edit: Somehow I’m thinking that the HLD text string in 20A4P “S” bootcode might related to the DS10HLx?
Further researching discovered that the SF-DS10L OPU is originally designed for 18X, but several ODD manufacturer also uses them for 20X drives (it stated SONY , LG, BENQ, LITEON). - Link (Photo)
The SF-DS17 is designed for 20X, use by SONY , LG, BENQ, LITEON . - Link (Photo)
