Advice please on firmware for Lite-On SOHW-812S



I have just purchsed this drive & installed it. It currently has firmware version USO1. Should I update the firmware to the latest version or leave it as it is?
Thank you in advance for your advice.


You might want to browse the LiteOn forum for people’s opinions on the different 812S firmware…

US01 is the original FW. Newer FWs support more media codes and probably have some tweaked write strategies (leading to possibly better or worse burns). In the end, though, if yours currently works well, then leave it alone. If it ain’t broke…
