    Like the man said its not possible with all DVD drives only with the ones which have the HW already present and only needs a firmware upgrade.

    Surely u can upgrade

    Hey guys,

    u dont seem to believe that i have converted by Single layer DVD RW(LiteOn SOHW 1233s ) into a dual layer one 1633s model
    well its works with most lite on drives , and also on some sony drives as well many other OEM drives as LITE ON is an OEM manufacturer & supplies DVD RWs to many OEMS like DELL,IBM & the SONY DVD RW is a rebagged one only , see digit nov. for that.

    any refer to the above site that i mentioned in my starting post for details

    bye

    I have lite On Sohw-1633s in the web site you mentioned it says it can upgraded to Sohw-1653s. Is it Possible?

    After flashing your firmware has writing quality improved?
