Lite-On iHAS B & Cross-Flashable Drive Models Compatible with c4eva's iXtreme Burner MAX Firmware for XGD3

c4eva's "iXtreme Burner MAX" customized PC DVD burner fw allows for burning 100% of an XGD3 ISO to regular DVD+R DL discs. Preferred media for error-free burns are Verbatim MKM001 (burning at 2.4x), and Verbatim MKM003 (burning at 2.4x or 4x). Note: "A" versions have MTK chipset, but are old and untested. "Y" versions have the NEC chipset, which is not supported. All regular features of the burner function as normal, including LightScribe, LabelTag, Smart-Erase, Smart-Burn, Smart-X, and SuperAllWrite. Even with the custom iXtreme Burner MAX fw flashed to the drive, it is still fully functional as a regular burner, not only for XGD3, but also XGD2, and all other ISOs and data, up to 8.7GB worth.

Cross-Flashable Models

In addition to the normal Lite-On iHAS "B" burners, there are several other drive models of different brands that can be cross-flashed to an iHAS by using the original Lite-On iHAS firmware and EEPROM utilities. These cross-flashable drives are re-badged OEM drives, which means they are manufactured by Lite-On and contain the same internal hardware and components as the Lite-On iHAS, but are sold under a different brand name (ASUS, Dell, HP, Plextor, TEAC), some with a different faceplate/bezel on the front of the drive, and/or with different retail packaging.

Please note that the cross-flashable drive models marked with a * in the list below have multiple revisions, of which only the "B" revision is supported. Revision "Y" (NEC chipset), "A" (older MTK chipset), "C" (MTK chipset/1MB flash), and "D" (MTK chipset/1MB flash) are not compatible. c4eva's custom Burner MAX firmware is based on the Lite-On iHAS "B" revision which has an MTK chipset with 2MB flash.

The revision letter is usually indicated somewhere on the retail box and also on the label sticker on the drive itself. For some drives, the revision letter is part of the drive model, or appears near or after the end of the drive model on the label sticker. Depending on when a particular model was manufactured and the retail destination country/region, the configuration and placement of the stickers may be slightly different; different arrangement, dual barcodes, different certification logos, and so on. If you are purchasing a cross-flashable drive online or from a retail store, you should have customer service or the salesperson check the label on the box or the sticker on the drive to ensure that it is in fact a "B" revision.

Please refer to the gallery of images below the list for examples of some of the different revisions' drive label stickers and box labels.

The following drive models are confirmed capable of being cross-flashed with c4eva's iXtreme Burner MAX firmware:




iHAS322* (thanks to Hasham, Risay, and Kingston for confirming)
DH-16ABSH11B (thanks to Charles for confirming)

    First off i'd like to say thank you for all the work you and your team has done with all the forums and tut's which really made this process much easier and understandable. My question is which cd brand do you recommend to burn the files to? From what i understand its the Verbatim DVD+R DL is this correct?

      Yes, the iHAS122-04 will work as long as it is a "B" revision. Check the label sticker to be sure. The manufacture date doesn't matter, as long as it's a "B". Here are some photos of label variations showing the "B" revision of iHAS122-04:

    So I have the DH-16ABSH11B confirmed "B" model based on the chipset (MT1839LN). I wrote all the possible burner max firmwares (using the instructions found on the firmware pack — 124b, 224b, etc.) to the drive and afterwards none would recognize a blank dvd when inserted. Am I doing something wrong? Am I missing a step? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Anybody know a place that still has revision b models of any of the cheaper dvd drives for sale in bulk to wholesale prices. I am looking to buy hundreds but a cost effective order of a dozen or so would be good too. If i can locate them i will be listing on ebay after flashing them. I sold about a 100 of the ihas124-04b but cant seem to locate a good source for that or other drives. I will be giving back to the gaming community if i am able to purchase them by selling them with ixetreme on them at a price that i only profit $10 or less off each one after fees and shipping.

    I have found an DVD-Writer LiteOn IHAS122-18 i don't know if the chipset is or isn't B. Although it says that it has a 2MB buffer. Would this be enough?

      You should ask them to verify if it's a "B", just to be sure. It's entirely possible they may have cut-n-pasted the info or that it's incorrect, so I wouldn't take it for granted that it's definitely a 2MB buffer.
