ANSWERED Liteon Replacement Question.

If my original liteon was a dg-16d2s-09c (93450c) and I have the drive key and full firmware dump, can I write that firmware to a dg-16d2s (74850c) drive and it still be live safe? Not much light has been shed on the issue and I’ve heard that the drives are the same except for a slightly different PCB design. But I don’t know for sure, so if some could tell me I would really appreciate it.:D

all lite on drives have exactly the same components, if you put 93450c fw on any lite-on it becomes a 93450c, regardless what revision drive it was to start with.
