I have a Samsung OEM drive that came with a Dell XPS 410 desktop. I have since added a LiteOn LH-20A1S as well. The drive info states that the Samsung is a TSST Corp TS-H653A with FW version D300 and OEM code “DE”. Does anyone know which, if any, retail version this corresponds to and if they can be crossflashed? I <em>think</em> the TS-H653A is the SH-S183A, but I’m not sure. I’m not even sure there are any advantages to be gained by crossflashing. I guess the main thing that irks me about it is that it won’t do quality scans with Nero.
Also, does anyone have any opinions of this drive? I’ll be honest, I haven’t used it much at all because I installed the LiteOn shortly after getting the PC and it is performing extremely well.
Btw, these are both SATA drives. The mobo for this PC has no IDE connectors. If it did, I’d probably still be using my Benq DW1620.
