I bought a "new" Lite-On drive recently only to find out it was not manufactured for retail sales and came out of an HP computer. Lite-On does not have a firmware update for it. I tried entering it in your Advanced setting for OEM equipment.  When I tried to enable Lite-On features through this cool feature, I got an error message under Current Setting: Unknown (FAILED!)  Reason: Invalid Field in CDB.  I used the exact drive description: hp BD E DH12E3LH EHDC (and tried variations), but got the same error for all the added Lite-On enhancements.  Couldn't find anything in the Search for your Forums.  What is the error trying to tell me?  Thanks for anyone's help.  Since this drive reads but not writes blu rays, I was using a DVD blank, a good one (Taiyo Yuden).


Secondly, I'm really trying to get this drive to read blu rays for the scan program Optical Drive Control, so I can find optimum burns on a new Pioneer drive I am now using to burn blanks with and some new Digistor media that is supposed to be better quality for half the price than the Verbatims I've been using. I have just learned about ImgBurn.  Experts in this area say it is the best burning software. Your features are awesome.  Since I am finding it impossible to get a firmware update for this OEM Lite-On drive, despite lots of help, I am hoping this Advanced feature will help.  So far, the drive won't read blu-ray discs, except a couple of times (don't know why), so I am hoping these Lite-On enhanced features might help.  I'm told ODC works scanning blu rays only on Lite-Ons or Samsungs, due to the Chipsets.  This is way over my head.  Thanks  for any help.  I'm running out of ideas.

The advanced features are just part of a real LiteOn drive's firmware. If the firmware on your drive doesn't support them, I'm afraid you're out of luck.

Ignoring that, none of them area anything to do with reading a disc and so won't help you with your problem anyway.

If there's no way to crossflash it to a proper LiteOn firmware (check the myce forums for that), you'd be better off returning it and buying another drive.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!
