Here is a file with firware updates for the CRX175A or CRX175E drives. It doesnt matter what revision you have it will update it to the 1.1B revision. Just extract the files and run either the CRX175A or CRX175E executable.

PS. I tested it with my CRX175A 1.0h and it worked fine

Has anyone else with a CRX175A (1.0h firmware) tried this modified update?
I'd like to update my drive, but seems too risky to me.
If someone else tried, what are the new goodies? maybe better overburning? better cd-speed recognition?
Thanks anyway.

I have a CRX175A and after flashing the firmware to 1.1B, I'm starting to have problems.

Every time I try to burn any disk using DAO or DAO96, Nero keeps returning an error when it tries to close the disk/session.

Anyone else having this problem? Also, is there any newer or older firmware that I can get my hands on so i can flash my drive? Links if possible. Sony is hopeless with support of this drive.

to Diabolik:
i was owner of this drive too, don't try to flash it until you have some problems. New fw don't give you some important advantages.
It is liteon but some small changes are posible i tried to flash liteon fw from 24102b it readed cd's but no burning. Maybe i had wrong fw file try to get some from liteno 24102b drive and using mtkflash you can try it but SAVE your old fw. I put after the old fw back and it was ok.

to Animecabit:
i had same problem but cd's ar ok not? at my case they was.

Yes, cd's still played on system but it still hasn't really closed the Table Of Contents on the cd yet.

I'm wondering if I move this cd to a different computer or cd drive, will it read it fine?

i just bought this cdrw and installed it on my Windows XP machine. Having loads of headache with this one! Everytime I burn a CD, the cdrw and the software ( Nero or WIndows Media Player ) will hang. I think the reason is because the cdrw gets locked and will not release its lock. I will have to restart the whole system to get the cdrw to eject. The funny thing is the CDRW gets burned fine. It just doesn't get released. ANyone knows what I should do about this problem ?

Not to be disrespectable to anyone or any company here but...

Return that goddamn burner and buy some other brand! :(
I've think I've had it with this Sony Crap!

Same goes with me too (a petered out CDWR within two months of use), with the kind of experience I had, I would say NO to SONY.
