The Codeguys have managed to hack an 851S into an 832S - apparently the only difference between an 812S and an 832S is the firmware (crossflash fixed firmware required for the hack) - generically, these tend to be called the "2S" drives.kibaima said:Liteon LDW-851S & Liteon SOHW-832S. Both are working very well, but I haven't checked out the DL burning ability of the 832S yet because of the simple reason that I haven't been able to afford/justify the purchase of 1 single blank yet fot this burner.
Just bought one myself too, for as little as 73 euros, and so far it's working brilliantly. Also burned two DL which seem to play fine in all standalones I've tried.PC-GUY said:I just bought NEC 3500AG and so far I'm impressed. Didn't burn any D/L yet and at $5 for one is that may be a while.
The initial one that came with it (2.16). I might try 2.18 soon, but I had heard some complaints about the hacked RPC-1 (Dangerous Brothers) treating some media brands badly- I can't confirm though, as I have the burner for less than one week and haven't tried any other firmware version yet.PC-GUY said:Which firmware are you using?
