Thanks in advance for any help.

The Drive you listed is a LiteOn drive, its not a clone. PLDS stands for Philips & Lite-On Digital Solutions

Ok thanks. I was just wondering, because I can’t find any new drivers/firmware for it.

It’s one of the iHAS_24 B series drives, probably included in some pre-manufactured desktop computer (which explains the alternative drive ID string you see). At the very least, it’s an iHAS124 B. Dependong on the features promoted for the drive, it could equate to…

iHAS124 = baseline model
iHAS224 = 124 + LightScribe
iHAS324 = 124 + SmartErase
iHAS424 = 124 + LightScribe + SmartErase (or = 224 + SmartErase)
iHAS524 = 124 + LabelTag + SmartErase
iHAS624 = 124 + LabelTag + LightScribe + SmartErase (or = 524 + LightScribe)
(source for that listing)

You won’t find new drivers for an optical drive; those are in the OS by default, and nothing else is required.

As for new firmware, I would suggest not trying to find an update unless you know the update fixes a specific problem you are experiencing.
