LG GCE-8320B (32x10x40) (z-cav) overclocked to LG GCE-8400B (40x12x40) (p-cav)
I have did a own test, My test CDRW drive is LG (HLDS) GCE-8320B (orginally flashed with 1.02 firmware).
First I have updated to http://www.lge.co.kr/library/openda...CE-8320B104.zip
Just 1.04 firmware of same model, so I wanted something more from it.
So i started looking for testd overclocks but found nothing interesting,
then I decided to try flash it with LG GCE-8400B (40x12x40) (p-cav) firmware http://www.lge.co.kr/library/openda...CE-8400B101.zip
Because of flashing utility Je4.exe for LG GCE-8400B don't wanted to flash it, so I have used Je3.exe (come from 8320B firmware) and with je4lg401.hex
firmware file, flashing was sucessful. First i checked it at bios, it was like real 40x , great , so then time for WinXP,
system detected it correctly LG GCE-8400B , then checked info at CloneCD, Nero, Nero CD Speed, it was detected exactly like
I dreamed. First I have checked for reading errors/speed, no errors and all read test was 100% good, time for burn something, i don't had any 40x supported blank
CD so i was unable to do 40x tests , today is sunday and no shops close to me, so decided to burn on my current blank CD's that support
only 24x, however i noticed a that it burned at p-cav mode, so seems like it works as it should, will do 40x tests tomorrow, however
seems now that it will work without difference to original 40x , started thinking now how many burners can be upgraded by new model firmware. LiteOn was no exeption !!"
