WH08LS20? What is the diffrence between WH and BH versions?

vbimport

#1

just like the tittle says, I just noticed a new LG 8x burner, WH08LS20, whats new?


#2

Hard to say, tried downloading the spec sheet from LG’s site and it downloads a LCD monitor spec sheet instead, go figure.


#3

probably if you want a new firmware update from LG you need to buy new revision of the burner

No, you have to read the LG forum firmware announce thread. Goto http://www.lgservice.co.kr/SearchSddr.laf and type BH08 in the search field.
The latest BH08 2.00 firmware contains these drive ids:


BD-RE  BH08NS20 
BD-RE  BH08LS20 
BD-RE  WH08LS20 
BD-RE  BH20L    
BD-RE  BE08LU20 
BD-RE  WE08LU20 
BD-RE  BH20N    
BD-RE  BH20F    

so the WH08LS20 is probably just a normal BH08 drive.

thanks again ala42!

didn’t realized that they actually released something, does your magic utility still works with new firmware?


#6

MCSE works with the 2.00 firmwares.


#7

perfect, any media codes?


#8

No new media codes compared to EL02-06.


#9

These FW don’t find any target drives for me. I have a LG BH08LS20 flashed with EL02-05 speedpatched FW.
Why won’t this new FW find any drives? The EL02 still finds both of my disc drives.
Anyone use these new FW’s yet?

I have exactly the same problem! No drives are shown when starting the new 2.0 firmware. My drive is also flashed with a speedpatched EL02-05.

Please help!

Updated to EL02-06 speedpatched.

Screen of 2.0 updater

Is EL02-06 the same as 2.0FW?

I’m using English Win 7. Booted to Vista, same blank target.

@Dixon Butz

Could you please provide a link for the EL02-06 firmware? I’m having problems finding it… :sad:

Thx that worked! I flashed to 1.0.
Thought I tried that last night. I had the 1.0FW. I guess I didn’t.

Had minor Windows problem after flashing 2.0 speedpatched After rebooting, drive was in device manager but no drive letter was assigned. There was no driver installed. I just uninstalled from DM and rescanned.

Also, after any FW I flash for this BH08, the system hangs when trying to reboot on Win7. Not a problem though.

The WH08LS20 and UH08LS10 have 4 MB buffer, while BH08LS20 and CH08LS10 have 2 MB buffer, see http://lgcommercial.com/product/WH08LS20/?division=&category=#features and http://lgcommercial.com/product/BH08LS20/?division=&category=#features.
