Sony dw-q31a to lite-on shw 16H5S

I’m looking for some help and guidance, i currently have the sony drive but i would like to flash it to a liteon drive - is this possible? and if so is there an easy way to do it, thanx in advance

Welcome. Go here and download the LS0R rar file, extract it with something like WinRar, and run the executable. Just make sure you you select the right drive to flash the firmware. Reboot. The latest firmware is LS0W, get it from here, unzip it, flash it again and reboot. Instead of using the official firmware, you can use the test firmware found here, it’s the LV4C version. You may want to read a bit about the latest version of SmartBurn (3.1.16t) to see what the test firmware offers you.
