This thread has closed due to the release of 51S@832S. GSC2 was actually the 812S US0N firmware with a few name changes and disguises. GSC2 is still available, but now under the US0N name (the firmware is named US0N, though, like GSC2, the drive will still be named “851S”). However, as US0N is a bit old, you might as well try @832S…
Unofficial LDW-851S Firmware: GSC2
We imported into a 851S firmware the media support (i.e., media codes, etc.) from the US0N firmware. This will allow 451S/851S owners to benefit from the work with improved media support and better burn quality that LiteOn has done for the 812S drive.
This is NOT an official LiteOn firmware!
(duh!) (in case you’re wondering, yes, there did exist a GSC1, which we used for internal testing and never released)
So what’s new?
I’ve always wanted to say this… “Match more media”!
Additionally (and perhaps most importantly), our tests seem to suggest that GSC2 does better than GS0H with write quality! Of course, results may vary, so try it out for yourself!
What about 411S/811S?
Sorry, but the media support portion of the _11S firmwares is just too different, so there’s nothing that we could do for the _11S family of drives.
This is also a perfect chance to use the new [thread=97590]OmniPatcher[/thread]! Unlike before, we are not going to create a confusing assortment of a zillion different pre-patched firmwares (one with auto-bitsetting, one without, etc., etc.) Instead, we recommend that before loading the firmware into your drive, open the .EXE with the OmniPatcher and customize the firmware to your liking.

Looking forward to seeing people’s results with this firmware!
