The only difference between the two LTU2 PCBs is their design.

A Lite-On LTU2 PCB will work in a console that has a Hitachi drive and vice versa.

Now question is;
Refer to previous comment, Lite-one LTU2 can be replaced with Hitachi! So what I need to know is that the Hitachi "LTU2-0500-v1.0.bin" firmware be write on Lite-on LTU2 PCB to be working properly, because I think maybe shows "Play DVD" error.
Thanks.

you install the specific fw type to the board, not what was in the console

ie if you purchase a hitachi LTU board, use the hitachi LTU fw

and if you purchase a liteon LTU board, use the liteon LTU fw

best to buy a hitachi fw then you dont have to worry about sourcing a liteon chassis & laser

The IC on both PCBs is the same which means you can write any LTU2 firmware to either PCB.
