I have the Samsung SN-SO82H but I think I need the Samsung SN-SO82M. The SN-SO82M has the light scribe and the SN-SO82H does not. Does anyone know where to get one. I did google and shopping search and have not been able to find one. Other then the light scribe part they are basically the same. I would like to find a site that would ship it to the U.S.
On this link I read the review on it. It does not indicate if it has been released yet or if it was released where you can buy it.

I thought about cross flashing the firmware of SN-SO82H with SN-SO82M
Like it mentioned in the post above.
But in this link below it mentioned that you can't use firmware to enable lightscribe because you need additional hardware to write and detect lightscribe disks.

After reading this link am I correct in assuming that even if I successfully got my H drive to accept the M drives firmware it would still not give me lightscribe because even if the drives laser knew how to write to the light scribe disk I would still be missing the additional hardware needed to detect the lightscribe disk. So can anyone confirm that this is how the lightscribe hardware works and that the only way to get lightscribe is to but a drive that already had the exact lightscribe hardware. The manufacture of Samsung says that my drive is not lightscribe enabled. I want to make sure that there is nothing that I can do to my drive to enable lightscribe and allow it to create lightscribe disks successfully. That only Drives that the manufacture says have lightscribe hardware or are lightscribe enabled can write lightscribe disk labels.
Thank you. Help on any of these things is appreciated
