Hi,

I am wondering what is differance between W and S version of LiteON 40125?

I know it has something with Mt. Rainer and Z-CLV - P-CAV writing mode.

In specification for these 2 drive LiteON site is said that both W and S version supports Mt. Rain, so what is a big deal?

Just got my 40125W. Is it newer or older than S vesrion?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Thanks for answer OC-freak.

How do I get 41025S with P-CAV and Mt. Rainer out of 41025W version?

Thanks.

I can use MKFLASH. Give me just order(rekkefølge) of FWs.

Thanks in advance.

Download ZS0J bin firmware from my firmware collection to convert your W version to a S version by using mtkflash

mtkflash x w /b zs0j.bin

x is the location where the drive is connected.

You may want to check the mtkflash guide closer…

this will convert it to a S version which woids the warranty…

Or you may wait for Lite-On releasing an updated firmware for LTR-40125W with Mt.Rainier.
