Hi i recently bought one of these from argos.I bought this drive because i had no space in my pc,plus its easier to just plug it in and leave it.I have various dvd drives and have followed this forum and others for many years.I was hoping for someone to maybe shed some light as to waht the actual drive inside is and what they are like.
With Philips rebadging history, this is most probably a Lite-On drive inside.
First, try and check if you can backup eeprom with C0deKings utilities, linky.
many thanks for that pinto2!
Yes i have tried backing up the eeprom and it successfully did it.
What would you do now try crossflashing it?
To what model would i back it up too!
The drive also supports lightscribe.
Would this help you in trying to assist me with what model it might be!
I have a liteon 20A1S internal burner,this drives tray does look similar.
he drive is however in a philips external usb case thats how it came.
I have popped the top off the case but there doesnt seem to be a label on the drive,well not in the normal place anyway(topside)
Hi i have just took the drive out and on the underside there is a sticker saying this is an LH 18A1H.
Are these drives any good?
and coyuld someone assist me in possibily flashing this drive to a true Liteon LH 18A1H,as the firmware updates are few and far between on the philips website!
