iHAS-324-98B
Was wondering if the above was compatible with the burner max firmware. Thanks!
The 98 is throwing me off, cheers in advance!

Yes, ignore the 98 – as long as it’s an iHAS*24-B it will work. I have two of the drives with that specific model (the 98 at the end) that I bought from newegg and can confirm for you that they work just fine =)

Oh, and if you’re also purchasing from newegg, those are the only 324′s that they carry so no worries because they don’t carry one with a different -## (ie. if you search on newegg for iHAS324, you should be taken directly to the product description as opposed to getting a list of search results)

I hope I didn’t just make things more complicated lol Happy burning m8 =)

Are all iHAS324′s going to work i read it had to be an B not A or C rev. Does that sound right?

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)
