I’ve just got a cheap Philips SPD3400CC/05 external USB DVD-RAM writer.
Based on its specs taken from Philips it looks like it might be a LH-18A1P:

â€¢DVD+R: 18x (21600KB/sec) maximum by CAV

â€¢CD-RW: 24x (3600KB/sec) by ZCAV
â€¢DVD+RW: 8x (10800KB/sec) by ZCLV

â€¢Buffer size: 2MB
â€¢CD-R: 48X (7200KB/sec) by CAV

Can anyone definitely confirm that this is indeed a LH-18A1P?
Can it be crossflashed via USB or do I need to take it out from the enclosure and put it in a desktop?
