Please help with Liteon SHM-165P6S!

Hi there,

I’d like to kindly ask for help with my new Liteon SHM-165P6S. I bought it a week ago to upgrade my old Liteon SOHW-832-01C. I only use DVD+RW 4x
as below (also i can email a more detailed description of the DVD+Rw 4x)!!

   Drive Type = DVD DUAL
    Disc Type = DVD+RW (Single Layer)
     Disc MID = 4F 50 54 4F 44 49 53 43 (OPTODISC)
     Disc TID = 4F 50 34 (OP4)

Nominal Capacity = 4.38GB
Manufacturer Maybe = Opto Disc
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 4.0X (Write)

On the old Liteon SOHW-832-01C it worked perfectly, never any problem.

As I changed to Liteon SHM-165P6S, I no longer am able to use my DVD+RWs. I have upgraded firmware to the latest …but no luck.

I have been trough this forum but I would not do anything without your advise. I think, it’s the medium which is not supported in the Liteon SHM-165P6S firmare because I do use those DVD+RW on other writers and it work.
I have seen that you use lots of different software to adjust firmwares…etc.

Could anyone help me to fix my Liteon SHM-165P6S so i can use the above medium

Kind regards


there is no utilities to help with the media problem at the moment

I thought I could fix the firmawre by using omnipatcher, MediaCodeSpeedEdit…etc all the software that has been mentioned here so my DVD+RWs will be accepted by the Writer.

I don’t think anyone has been able to patch the 6S firmware yet.

no they are not currently supporting this 6s series due to a checksum problem, you will need to be patient on this one
