I have had this drive for a little over a year, and its been great. I use firmware b7p9 and use Verbatim DVD+R disks. Since I got this drive and flashed it with that firmware, I have not touched it since. I want to know if there is a better firmware out there now, or if there is anyway to flash this drive successfully to the 1640 model?
B7W9 and no you cannot flash it to the 1640.
What advantages does the B7W9 have over the B7P9?
None that I could see , but it probably recognizes more media codes. I only use Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim media so it really doesn’t effect me. Maybe they added some 4x or 6xrw support.
See the first post in this threadfor the change log. Like Alan says it’s a newer FW.
BenQ is creating a newer firmware, that’s my assumption
