Lite-On To Encrypt Firmware On Plextor Drives


Lite-On To Encrypt Firmware On Plextor Drives

Postby Ian on Sun Feb 15, 2009 8:33 pm

According to my sources, Lite-On will soon be AES encrypting the firmware on Plextor's 20x and 22x DVD writers. Apparently, Plextor doesn't like how you can use utilities like LtnFlash and xflash to flash a $30 Lite-On drive with a Plextor firmware and use their PlexUtilities software. I pointed out that unencrypted Plextor firmware is already out on the web, but Lite-On is moving ahead with it anyway to show Plextor that they are trying to do something about it.

So Plextor is now using LiteOn drives....Damn they've certainly fallen from the giant they once were.
