Burn baby burn!

Just bought LiteOn LTR-52327S, some questions...

Postby semit82 on Mon Feb 23, 2004 3:29 pm

I got it with firmware QS0C already flashed from the factory.

Does anyone has a drive flashed with this version?
How good is this version?
(i heard that this version was making problems..?)

just a question..
how do i downgrade the firmware using the LtnFW.exe Tool?
(for example to QS0B)

Thanks.

congrats on your new drive! :D

so you decided to forgo the LG and buy a LiteOn! very good choice.

where did you buy it? how much did it cost you?

i cost me 250 NIS
it was manufactured in November 2003, came flashed with QS0C.
but.... there was no LITEON Logo on it (Like in your review of it) :(

i read that the best firmware is QS0B? is that currect?

@semit82 - Get QS0B.. it's better (marginally) than QS0C.

I've found that QS0B is marginally better than QS0C, too. I am personally using QS0B on my 52327S drives.

Then why how did you decide to flash to QS0B and not to QS0C?

One of my 52327Ss came with QS08 and the other came with QS09. I actually tested QS0C on both drives, but when QS0B came out, I installed it on one of the drives, and it caused the write quality to be better (QS0C was available from www.firmware-flash.com before Lite-On even released QS0B, so I actually used it before I ever saw QS0B).

I think that "If it works, don't fix it" applies here unless you're really picky about your writing quality (like I am). The writing quality with QS0C is certainly not bad, it's just a little better with QS0B.
