KTL / mciahel, sorry, I typo'd the cross reference between the B and N firmwares. That was an obvious "Ma bad!" :o
Although, I never use LightScribe and never will, so hypothetically I could flash it to the B and still be OK, no?
So that confuses me again as to KTL's initial statement. I still don't get the relation then. To KTL, what does the SBxx reporting SB as the OEM code supposed to mean in relation to my drive?
Admittedly, I didn't check the Korean site even though I know it exists. I was getting tired and possibly a bit cranky or lazy (pick one :D) and didn't go out there.
I guess in the grand scheme of things I was looking for a somewhat easy answer to the "Has anyone seen this firmware?" question. To my credit, I did at least search the forums and do some research elsewhere, just not enough I guess?
I've been out of the acronym circles and burn forums, so I'll have to refresh myself as to what the MID's are.
I will also toss the drive "as is" in another system and see if I get the same error. I have an actual SH-203B in another box, so I'll simply swap the two.
Thanks for your help so far. I do appreciate it!
