Pioneer DVR-K14L is the same Asus SDRW-0804P-D



Hi all,

I found out that the Asus SDRW-0804P-D is the same like Pioneer DVR-K14L.
Look here:

SDRW-0804P-D = DRV-K14L

The DVR-K14L has only the latest version 1.10 or the Firmware and this drive makes a lot of problems reading and writing CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW.

The Asus one have a new firmware with the Version 1.12 look here to download the firmware:


The question can anybody change this firmware to flash it to the DVR-K14L.

It will be great to flash the drive to a new firmware.



It’s not that easy as you think, especially with Slimline drives.


Hi Chef,

I know that but I think there is a way to change the name and the ID of the Device within the firmware…

Please can you tell me which tools I need to extract the cource code and which compiler ??The problem I have when I open the firmware with any reshacker or any other programms I can’t understand any thing its compiled to something like asscii code or some code else. I found out that the firmware is a Borland c++ one.

I think I have to change the name of the Firmware EX: xxxxx.101 etc… Within the firmware file.
