SONY CRX330E, Which LiteOn Drive?

What is the LiteOn equivalent of SONY CRX330E (a DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive)?

The SONY CRX330E is not listed on The Firmware Page ( http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?category=3&manufactor=30 ).

The SONY CRX330E can be set region free by using LtnRPC.

What’s your current firmware. :wink:

This post says it’s a LTC-48161H, not sure though.

I don’t have the firmware version information at the moment (I should next week).

Google searching Sony LTC-48161H ( http://www.google.com/search?q=Sony+LTC-48161H&num=100&hl=en&lr=&safe=off&filter=0 ) yields many results displaying that Sony CRX300E is equivalent to LiteOn LTC-48161H.

For Sony CRX330E to be equivalent to LiteOn LTC-48161H, Sony CRX330E must be equivalent to Sony CRX300E.

the 330E if i remember was only available in dell pcs, it isn’t a clone of LiteOn LTC-48161H though

nero cd-dvd speed displays the firmware version…

I tend to use Nero InfoTool to look up the firmware version.

The RPC1.org forum seems to have information regarding the rebag identification of SONY CRX330E. The thread may be found:

I am investigating this drive once again.

I have sucessfully flashed to Lite-On SOHC-5235K

It does appear that all of the following drives differ only in firmware:

SONY CRX330E
SONY CRX320ED
Lite-On SOHC-5235K

Lite-On SOHC-4835K may also exist and be crossflashable, but this is untested by me.
