Re: 100% Firmware Downgrade for ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG BH16NS

To answer my own question and for the benefit of others: It seems the “EEPROM Data Mover tool” checks the validity of the source ‘clean’ Firmware and before you can use a firmware dumped from a working optical drive (of the same model) you need to ‘clean’ it first using a separate utility “BH16NS40_...
