Sorry bit confused.. have a 5 series liteon.. can i flash a 6 chipset series firmware

i’ve got the 48125S liteon drive, now the 48x24x and the 52x24x are both series 6 chipset drives. can I flash my drive to either 48246S or 52246S? I’m assuming that none of the 48x24 or 52x24 were made using the 5 series chipset?

The answers are really very simple :

No, unfortunately you can’t. I’ve personally tried it w no luck.

Yes, that’s correct.

For more info just browse the LiteOn forum.

ah well… most of my burns are done with cdr, and the diff between 48 and 52x is negligible. having 24x rw would be nice, but I can deal with 12. thanx for the info! I guess i’ll just flash to the latest V08 firmware for my drive and deal with it! :wink:

Yep ! That’s what I did :wink:
