As per the title, is there any real compelling reason for me to upgrade to A105 from the A104 that came with the unit? Should I go for the stock LG A105 or go with the auto-reset A105 (by TDB)*?
If I understand correctly, I should jumper the GSA-4163B to master, hook it up to the second IDE channel and just run the executable? (You’ll have to excuse me, here - I’ve never flashed an optical drive before, so I don’t know the procedure or the chances that something’ll go horribly wrong, and flashing the BIOS on any system always makes my heart stop for a few minutes :o)
Oddly enough, I don’t seem to be using the drive very much I’m pretty much letting my Plextor Premium do most of the heavy lifting on this rig.
*The only reason I can think of for using the auto-reset firmware is that I watch quite a few R2 DVDs, but, meh, I have the drive set to R1 and just rip it with the Decrypter. Anyone had issues with the patched firmware?
