Just installed a fan (0.9 W) in my LiteOn 5001. 12v wire soldered to the right side of L11 and negative to the ground pad on mother board without using a resistor. Worked very well. When I turn the power off the fan is off.

Tried L11 mod - it worked for me too. Little guy on the back left corner of m/b (looking from front of unit). Now my fan only runs during power on.
I just bought a LiteOn LVW-5001 today. I went to the firmware site at www.liteonit.com.tw/dc/english/download/index.asp. I downloaded the system and drive updates, applied them, then downloaded the next one and applied it. Here's the numbers (with incremental changes in bold):
After applying system firmware LNEA1176.DSU
After applying drive firmware LNEA1000.D00
After applying system firmware LNEA1180.DS1
First, has anyone modified the 1180 firmware to disable macrovision? I've read lordsmurf's info at www.digitalfaq.com/reviews/liteon.htm but it assumes the latest is 1163.
Second, some posts have mentioned LiteOn putting a fan on the 5001 if you send it to them. How can I contact LiteOn to do this? Thanks for any help.
Does anyone know what are new enhancement and fix list for firmware version 1180 ?? , please post here,
Next question: where is the best forum to talks about lvw-5001?? after
forum.liteonit.com.tw went down.
thanks so much!!!

I'm still trying to get "downgrade-friendly" 1176/1180 hacks. There may be problems in latter fw's after 1163 and those greasy bastards at LiteOn added info that prevents downgrading. I think they freaked out when they saw their forum was being used to discuss hacking of their own machines.
lordsmurf, why is that a problem? I mean, if you hack 1176 and call it 1177, you can still apply 1180. And if you hack 1180 and call it 1181, you can still apply a later one. Right? Isn't the worst case scenario that you can "downgrade" by simply changing the number in an older firmware to a higher number? I'm probably missing something, but I'm curious what other problems it might cause.
