is there a way that i can move back to the original oem firmware?
its not one of those .EXE files, it upgrades through burning the firmware in a cd and restart the computer and start upgrading from reboot. How do i upgrade with that?
I badly need the same file. If someone could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org that would be great. I’ll send you the right tools if you happen to have the drive and if you want to do a hack to yours.
However, someone ASAP send me a message!
Have just sent it to your e-mail address
CodeKing & jasonbored, i have to split it into 2 smaller files because I can’t e-mail more than 2MB.
CodeKing ,Pinto2,jasonbored. Have sent all of you proper .bin firmware (vppe), if you couldn’t/can’t use the .exe
This is the proper HP .exe installation file.
Thanks for the VPPE file, The Black Wizard.
I’ll check it out as soon I’m back at home.
I think i damaged my 822s. Everytime after I push eject, pop a disc in, then push eject button again to close, the drive would make a noise that sounds like this: “ka jit”
Where you having any problems while your drive was crossflashed to a SOHW-832S?
no, but i think i flashed it back and forth too much. Or maybe something to do with the official 832s firmware.
Could just be a mechanical fault unrelated to firmware…
Maybe a siily question,
If you were not having any trouble as an 832S, have you crossflashed back since the problem started?
can u edit posts … 3 in role … for me is too much
Do you mean flashing back to 822s? If so i havent because i dont have that firmware anymore. I’ve tried using the OEM firmware from HP, but since the drive ID changed, the flash program didnt work. Sigh, if only i have backed up the 822s firmware before cross-flashing it to 832s, then i could return it to the original status.
So just to clarify, your drive, a Lite-On SOHW-822S(HP OEM), is currently crossflashed to a SOHW-832S. You have begun to have problems with the drive as a crossflashed 832S, so you would like to flash back to your ORIGINAL drives firmware.
If this is so, DON’T PANIC . I have an original 822S firmware.
Here it is SOHW-822S

Hope this helps the cause
Omg, thanks!! You’re a life saver. Hope this will fix the problem, but if it doesnt then oh well, i still got the maddog 16x(3500a).
