How do I flash my firmware? There are basically three ways to do this. The first is to use the Windows firmware flasher built into the firmware package this is the most common way. If your firmware exists in a raw Lite-on SOHW-1613S i.

BIN file without a firmware flasher, you can use either LtnFW Windows, easy-to-use, models prior to the 5S model, without a serial flash or MtkFlash DOS, harder-to-use, but can be used for dead drive recovery, models prior to the 5S model, without a serial flash or for drives with a Lite-on SOHW-1613S flash 5S, 6S, etc. Yes but LtnFW only flashes drives prior to the 5S model.


Later models use a serial flash which is not Lite-on SOHW-1613S by LtnFW. Are there any differences between external and internal firmwares? There is no difference.

Modding, Overclocking, Tools, etc. How do I make my drive region-free RPC-1? There are Lite-on SOHW-1613S tools that can perform the region-freeing task. The first is LtnRPC.

Do LiteOn drives have riplocks? How do I read DVDs faster? First, LiteOn drives do not have video riplocks.


Instead, LiteOn drives have a feature called SMART-X, which is designed to automatically slow down the reading speed if data is requested at Lite-on SOHW-1613S slow rate. This way, the drive will slow down when playing a movie as the movie player does not require data to be delivered at a very fast rate and will read at the maximum speed when it is ripping as ripping software will request data as fast as it can. Normally, this works quite well, but it is not perfect, and there have been cases where a drive read at a locked rate when ripping and there have been cases where a drive did not slow down when playing back a movie. However, LiteOn drives do have very conservative media-based read-speed limits Lite-on SOHW-1613S seems to prefer to err on the side of caution.

And as with all other drives, the reading speed for dual-layer media pressed and recordable is also limited. These media-based speed limits can be overridden through the use of hacked firmwares.

What is crossflashing overclocking? LiteOn models that share the same hardware could interchange firmwares.

For a number of LiteOn drives, the feature set is not determined by the hardware, but instead, by the firmware, allowing you to convert between models by changing the firmware. Where do I find software tools for my pre drive? Many of these Lite-on SOHW-1613S, if available, are no longer actively maintained, and as such will not work on your recent drives. Please make use of the search function should the discussion topics for these tools not be readily available in the LiteOn Lite-on SOHW-1613S index. How exactly do I crossflash?

First, you should read this overview of LiteOn drive families and generations pay special attention to the text at the top, before the list! Once you have done that, you can check out the crossflashing how-to guide. How can I add this Lite-on SOHW-1613S

See the above question for instructions. But unlike the other crossflashes, there are some special things to make note of about this crossflash which is Lite-on SOHW-1613S this is getting a F. How is it different from crossflashing and crossflash patching? There are two different levels of protection against crossflashing.

The first is at the firmware flashing level. The official LiteOn firmware flashers will not allow you to flash a Lite-on SOHW-1613S onto a Lite-on SOHW-1613S that does not identify itself as the correct model e. The official flashers will also not allow you to downgrade your firmware e. This protection is implemented in the flashing software and works by simply checking the drive name and firmware version. There are two ways to get around this problem. One way to do this is to FlashFix the firmware flasher so that it will not perform the drive name and firmware version checks. Most of the flashers found on the codeguys firmware page have already been FlashFixed! Another way to get around this problem is simply to flash using another piece of software, such as LtnFW or MtkFlash.

Anyone have an opinion on the LiteOn SOHW-1613S?

The second level of protection which is present only Lite-on SOHW-1613S DVD-writers is an internal drive identification usually in the form of a unique checksum stored in the EEPROM, which is unaffected by firmware flashes. This level of protection is not carried out by software, but by the firmware, which checks this identification to make sure that the drive is not crossflashed. Because this internal drive identification in the EEPROM is not altered by firmware flashes, it is necessary to make sure that any non-native firmware that you load i.

Please keep in mind, however, that burning media above its rated speed may sometimes produce undesirable results. Overspeeding is not for all media types it works best with quality mediaand you should check your results to make sure that the quality is acceptable. How is it different from the firmware?
