Samsung SH-D162D DVD-ROM drive firmware

Story about why and how will come

There seems to be 2 ic, MT1308 and MT1309, first being IDE and second SATA ? it might run 25MMhz but im not sure about this

official site mentions not much

Firmware is always 256 KiB, the onboard flash might be this size. First string seen in the firmware is: "MT1308/9 Firmware Copyright 2006 MediaTek Inc". and always ends with: "TSSTcorpDVD-ROM SH-D162DSB0?" where ? == the firmware version. a similair pattern apears arround 0x14105

A litle weird thing in the very beginning seems to indicate "Endianness" change. Could just be a check or test part but the following string seems wrong, yet so familiar (the correct one is not far of) "OBTO STTSocprVD-DOR MHSD-61D2" (yes, it should atleast contain the word "BOOT". quite a landing place if you ask me.

Kreon Firmware

Kreon firmware are used to dump for example, xbox games from DVD using normal PC hardware. Currently I do not let you download any firmware or tool.
I do however allow you to download a Diff file to patch original firmwares. I think thats somewhat legal.

Included with the D162C was a Fix firmware, its strangely said: "MSTH-53A3"
