CodeGuys EEPROM Utility (v1.3.2)
What is it
| We have developed a tool that makes backing up and restoring the EEPROM very simple. The EEPROM is a 1024 byte non-volitile memory in the drive, which stores data that needs to be retained when the drive is de-powered. I suggest that everyone with a Liteon DVD drive should use this utility to make a backup of their EEPROM straight away (if you don't have one already) and make two copies for safe keeping. You may never need it but it's good to have just in case. If you have two drives, it's even more important, as it is very easy to write the EEPROM file to the wrong drive. This can kill a drive because each EEPROM has unique calibration data, that is set in the factory. MAKE A BACKUP NOW!!!! What have you got to lose. |
Reset Learnt Media
| This option will clear all of the learnt media calibration data and flush the four burn logs. This is similar to reloading an EEPROM file which has not burnt any media. Remember it may take two to four burns before optimum results are achieved after resetting the calibration data. If you already have good burns then this option is not for you. |
This option is for:
1/ Drives that drifts from good burns to poor burns after several burns.
2/ Drives that have used strategy switches and now have poor burn quality.
3/ Drives that now burn poorly after a very bad burn.
4/ 1213S users upgrading to 1633S or returning to 1213S. This is because the media code indices are completely different between the 1213S and 1633S, so the wrong learn data may be used.
Note: Please understand that this option is quite experimental, at this stage. Make sure you backup your eeprom before using it.
Only DVD drives can be selected from the drop down list. EEPROM files for this utility are compatible with other EEPROM utilities.
Note: Do not use this utility on anything other than Liteon hardware.
Special thanks goes to RPC1 (The Firmware Page) and the authors of dvdzone and plscsi. Without them, this utility would not have been possible.
Current Version:1.3.2 (29th October 2004)
EEPROM Utility v1.3.2 has been released to address an issue with Window 98 and Me, which doesn't support SPTI. I also added the date info to the drive ID, in the drive list.
1/ Searches for drives on SPTI and ASPI.
2/ Shows drive date in the drive list.
1.3.1 (22th October 2004)
1.3.0 (20th October 2004)
