    Firmware HQ - Joint venture

    Hi LIGHTNINGUK!, I've been looking for a way to upgrade the firmware on my (OEM LITEON) SSM-8515S 21C - crossflashing. I've been reading about flashfix, and also found the firmwareHQ site: http://www.firmwarehq.com/Lite-On/SSM-8515S/files.html They mentioned this: "...It is a joint venture between Digital Digest and ImgBurn.com..." Before I download any files - I need to check out that the site is legitimate (just due diligence/prudence - nothing more), and that the files are from a verified and original source. I can't seem to see any MD5 or SHA1's published for the firmware files is all. I am also having problem getting flashfix from a source I can verify as original and pure. Can you provide some help please.

    Change Advanced Settings

    Go you mind if I ask what disc media you tend to buy, and from where (In the UK)? DVD + CD

    Change Advanced Settings

    Appreciate the guidance, I can't work out if you are telling me that smartburn is already active and in use or not. If not - what steps do I need to take to get it active and working (and if you think smart burn has been found to be good in practice). I understand what it is now, but I have no experience if it is actually all it claims to be in real use - and if it is worth having on.

    Change Advanced Settings

    Hi LIGHTNING UK!, Need help understanding drive settings for imgburn. I have seen a window box that says "Change Advanced Settings" - inside is a window > "Welcome - please select the appropriate tab for your device settings" My device details Device: Asus Laptop drive. OEM manufacturer: Lite-ON Model: SSM-8515 21C (GRS6). ----------------------------------------------------------- Log: Slimtype DVDRW SSM-8515S GRS6 (ATA) Current Profile: DVD+R Disc Information: Status: Complete State of Last Session: Complete Erasable: No Sessions: 1 Sectors: 140,624 Size: 287,997,952 bytes Time: 31:16:74 (MM:SS:FF) MID: MCC-004-00 Supported Write Speeds: 2.4x, 4x, 6x, 8x TOC Information: Session 1...

Thanks for any input you are able to give. SM.

    Verifying Burn - Technical Discussion

    You're right - apologies. So in summary, for those reading this in the future, using imgburn: Make sure the options Setting>General>Page 2 - check "Calculate MD5 Hash Values" & "Compare MD5 Hash Values" boxes. Burn the same iso file on different media - start with +R then -R - to check if any padding gets added to either type, by your dvd burner drive. Hopefully, with one of them, it won't. Use that type, if you want to check if the physically burned DVD (md5 hash) - matches exactly/precisely the md5 of the original iso/image file., that you downloaded, any-time in the future. Caveat: Your drive (either because of it's hardware, or the current firmware on it) might add padding, regardless of the media (type) you use. The only way to find out if you can get perfect image transmission - is to test different media - and then to check if there is padding, If it is there whichever media you use - the only option seems to be, try different firmware - if this doesn't work then: ______________________________ LIGHTNING UK! - I'll let you finish-off/ add anything to the summary.

    Verifying Burn - Technical Discussion

    Ok - padding is the issue - I now understand. So - Is it my drive that is doing the padding (with any and all media), or, is it due to the media that I am using and I simple need to change it. If I want to burn iso images with no padding on my laptop drive - what should I be finding/checking/sourcing/changing?

    Verifying Burn - Technical Discussion

    Thank you for your reply and continued support. Okay - so past the intial burn+verify run - the MD5's don't match. So If we go back to the initial question that motivated me to post this thread. If I only have an image checksum in one hand, and the physical burned disc in the other - how can I confirm the md5 / burn authenticity (on another machine) - if the image file itself has been lost? Where can I go from here to achieve my goal - what would I have to change - what options do I have? UKLIGHTNING! My sincere thanks for your patience. I am sure many others will benefit from the exploration of this topic - clearly there was quite a bit for me to learn about, and comprehend. SM.

    Okay - so everything's there? There is a difference between the MD5 of the image and any verification steps the drive is doing. What Am I doing wrong? What do I need to do from here to get things working so I can compared the MD5 directly against the original of the image?

    Firware update for LiteOn SSM-8515S?

    You think that's funny - I'm still using this drive and just came across this thread - in 2016!!!. Looking out for the firmware file!

    Verifying Burn - Technical Discussion

    Ok. I'm going to do a few test burns and verifications - using MD5. I'm asking what settings I should change - (all of them) - so that A) I can do ask we have discussed and So that any log files you might need/ask for are configured properly - and include all the details you 'might' need/want.

    Verifying Burn - Technical Discussion

    Thanks for the reply LIGHTNING UK!, Can you point me to a guide, that can show me what settings need to be modified - so I can get under way. For e.g - in the shared thread - someone directs emap to changing to read mode (please explain why) etc. I think you know the level of accuracy at which I'm trying to operate - as close to forensic as possible. If there is no guide - could we please go through how to configure imgburn for this here?

    Verifying Burn - Technical Discussion

    Appreciate the response LIGHTNING UK!, This is the reason I have some confusion. emap is trying to achieve the same goal as me i.e. a way to forensically check how a burned physical disc - compares to the original virgin image checksum. But, there seems to be an issue about extra sectors being written to the disc - and the whole thing fails:: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?/topic/6483-verifying-burned-dvds-by-md5-instead-of-iso/ The reason I'm confused - emap did as suggested in the posts - m5 check, yet all attempts failed. [tl:dr - emap has DVD's burned long ago - did not want to store terabytes of image/iso files for years - emap just kept their checksums in a document instead. Emap asks if there is a way to compare the DVD's against the checksums to check data integrity/disc viability - as some discs became scratched over time - and in addition emap realises the likelihood of degradation, of the disc material over time. The thread is very interesting - and enlightening]. As you can tell - I'm just trying to explore how to do this technically right, so I will be genuinely competent. Would appreciate your insights and guidance from here. Again - my thanks and respects for exploring this topic so we can all learn. SM.

    Verifying Burn - Technical Discussion

    Thank you for being patient with me. I am a noob - and I'm trying to learn. I think I haven't done a good job of communicating my thought process - so I'm going to give it another go: User is helping repair a family members PC - as its performing poorly. Repairman suspects it's infected with light malware. Repairman proceeds to download (any) antivirus rescue disc iso image to the hardrive (e.g Kaspersky rescue disc). Unbeknownst to the repairman, it's not a light/minor infection - but a rootkit. The rootkit infects the image file as soon as the download is complete. Repairman proceeds to burn this image to dvd using imgburn, (wrongly thinking all is okay). Imgburn burns then verification proceeds. What would be the result of the verification? So my technical question is - How could the disc be checked (using imgburn) - not against this locally stored image file, but against the image checksum, as originally advertised on the kaspersky website. [Yes - ideally - download burn images on a clean machine, but many who imagine their machine is clean - are unknowingly wrong]. Up to this point, I've been using imgbrn quite simply. Now I want to become a power user. Most Sincerely - thank you for your patience and help. SM
