yes crossflash to this fw 124-b i give you then all dvd dl will work its burnermax modified for more disc id’s speeds and such. work quite well. some info on crossflash here by me http://c4evaspeaks.com/topic/liteon-ihas24-b-rebadges-and-crossflashing-info/

Crossflashing any re-badged iHASx24 B to Lite-On firmware (Thanks to Spark for procedure)

Utilities and Lite-On iHASx24 B stock firmware can be found here:
http://codeguys.rpc1.org/.

Process is:

1. Launch EEPROM utility and backup EEPROM.
2. Launch Firmware utility and backup Firmware.

With the above steps, these dumps will be needed if you ever need to return the drive to stock for warranted repair etc so it’s a good idea to make 2 dumps just to be sure.

3. Flash the drive using the Firmware utility selecting the exe file. All settings should be left as default. (note: unscrabbled c0deguys firmware is required)
4. After the Flashing utility confirms that the flash is successful, power cycle the drive just the drive not pc unplug power to drive then back in . The Green activity LED on it will now flash constantly but the eject button etc

should respond as normal.
5. Run the EEPROM utility and launch the Convert option. This will finalize the cross flash process.
6. Once this has completed successfully, power cycle the drive again.
7. The drive will now be recognized as an iHASx24 B model and the process is now complete.

Note: Once cross flashed with c0deguys firmware, you should be able to use official Lite-On firmware updates NOW UPDATE TO THE LATEST FIRM FROM LITEON THEN FLASH THE MODIFIED BURNERMAX AND YOUR GOOD TO GO!! GOOD LUCK ALSO CHECK THIS OUT!!

Not sure if its common knowledge on these forums but it would seem DL over-burning is possible out the box.

Lightning UK has also done some tests on it, looks ok.

Only problem is it seems difficult to get a hold of in the UK. Maybe more readily available in the US. Wonder if its possible to flash a bog standard 5280s with the plus FW?

Based on the results from the Verb DL discs, this seems to be a completely acceptable drive with a decent burn quality. but the thing that stuck out to me the most was that DVDInfoPro and KProbe see this as an “ATAPI iHAS624 B

according to logs it appears to operate consistently in and around the layer break using the full 8.7Gb capacity at least with Verbs anyway, it’s all over the place with cheap media at high speeds though as expected

Its a perfect alternative for those who cannot get hold of a now discontinued B drive (as you know)
