afaik, you will still need one of the com solutions. to connect to such a device and there are much cheaper options for such a converter...
buy one of these http://alldav.com/index.php?main_page=prod...76d061b39e5640a
then simply solder a wire to the Rx pad,, and connect that to the Tx pad on the liteon drive (you can use a pin as a probe)
this will only work using windows software,
btw I have not tested this yet.
you could also buy a normal usb to rs232 converter and use a max232 type (CK3) or homemade adapter as normal.
