What' new about the test firmware?

Do the test firmwares also have an updated media support list, or do they have the same media list as the latest official FWs, but with some new features only?

any one?

You can download the firmwares you want to compare, and then use MCSE to see the supported MIDs and speed, and see for yourself! :wink:

You will need unscrambled firmware however, so I suggest you go to the codeguys’ site and download from there.

I was hopping it had already been done :frowning:
Will do it as soon has I have a little time.
Thanks anyway.

MCSE doesnot support the test firmware, Codeguys doesnot offer an unscrambled version, so Xflash does not support it neither. …

Too bad. I’m sorry for wasting your time! :o

Here’s one way that [I]will [/I]work, although it’s a bit tedious (requires multiple reboot):

  • flash your drive with the appropriate firmware
  • reboot with DOS and extract the firmware to a BIN file using XSF
  • reboot to windows
  • use MSE to load the BIN file and export the media codes.

I went this route a couple of months ago with MV7U:

Yes I know that, but like you said it’s a bit tedious, and I really don’t feel like doing that today.


OK: just did it with MV9N. There’s only [I]one new media code[/I] added in comparison to MS0P. Here’s the difference between the MCSE lists:

Compare: (<)X:\cdtools\LITEON\Fw_6S\MS0P_speedsettings.txt (8309 bytes)
   with: (>)X:\cdtools\LITEON\Fw_6S\MV9N_speedsettings.txt (8335 bytes)

Thanks man :clap:

This new tool, coming soon, should make everyone’s life a little easier. :wink:


We’re all waiting this new tool, which will free us from the tedious process of XSF.

Thanks again,


Well well…that looks rather nifty :wink:

That looks brilliant, C0deKing! Waiting for its release with bated breath :stuck_out_tongue:

Looks good, thank you- a lot easier to use! I’m not afraid of DOS, but anything that’ll get us the information without offering potentially dangerous optons is definitely better!


All I can say is :bow: :clap: again!!!

will the new tool enable us to increase the read seed :stuck_out_tongue:

looks like it can only dump the flash rom.
