I am thinking of swapping out my LVW-5005 factory drive with a SOHW-1693s. I believe I have all the steps down to do the swap:
- Remove factory drive from LVW5005
- Prep the SOHW-1693s
a) update firmware to KC4B version
b) make drive region-free
- Install SOHW-1693s into LVW5005
Here is my dliemna. Previously, I had loaded the firmware 1101 on the LVW5005. My serial number was 0102-1140-0101.F2SD after the upgrade. I could not downgrade to 0098 so I was stuck with macro protection enabled. Once I swap the drive, I am assuming that the LVW5005 motherboard will recognize the SOHW-1693s firmware and not the 1101 upgrade. Is this correct or will the motherboard have a problem with recognizing the SOHW-1693s firmware? Basically, I am asking if I will still have macro protection enabled after the drive swap. Thanks!
