I have a Sanyo QPS1500 24x burner I would like to overclock to the 32x model. Does the 24x model have the same specs as the new 32x model? I have overclocked a few drives but I really don't want to mess up this one. I was able to hex edit the rom of my old acer 4x so I could flash a 6x rom so I hope this update goes as well. Does anyone know where I can find the 32x rom?

I finally got ahold of the 32x rom for my 24x sanyo today. First thing I did was try and flash the rom but the program wuldn't let me. Next I opened up my trusty hex editer Ultra Edit and took a careful look at the 24x rom and the 32x rom side by side. I tried a thing or two and then I stumbled uppon the solution. My drive model is BP1500 and the 32x version is BP1600 so I foudn the correct string and changed the PB1600 rom to read BP1500. Just my luck the rom flashed without a hitch. I rebooted and windows found a Sanyo PB1600 32x drive. The only problem was the drive door didn't open and nothing else about the drive worked. Back to square one. I flashed the old rom but I got an error half way through the process. I rebooted and finally the flash took and I'm back to a working 24x burner and a lot more knowledge under my belt. This is just one example of what can happen while Overclocking your buner. Sometimes you cant get the rom to flash sometimes it flashes and the drive is forever lost and sometimes if your very lucky you end up with a working overclocked burner.
