S and W: LiteOn tries to confuse us?

Up to 5-chipset drives,
S => ST Microelectronics
W => Winbond

My 52246S has a Winbond, and I remember someone posting that his 48246S is also winbond.

This weekend, I’ve flashed a friend’s 48246S to 52x, and guess…his drive has a ST flash memory…

And I wonder if they will be introducing K any time soon. See here.

what is K ??? :confused: :confused:

how do i tell if mine is winbond or ST?
do you think that the 6S could be flashed to a 6K?

Open your drive and look inside. There is no firmware for the 6K available yet. I don’t know if it is even a real drive.

I was just doing some flashing of my 52246S drive, lo and behold MTKFlash says it’s a Winbond chip.

I have dual 48246S drives. One has an ST chip and the other has a winbond. I have both flashed to 52x, and nero will write to both at the same time with no problems.
