Hi, I haven't updated the firmware on my ND-3500A drive since I bought it, which was quite some time ago (about 2 years).
In any case, having looked at the various firmware versions that are available I have found that (unsuprisingly perhaps) there are now several different versions to choose from - including some hacked firmware versions. However having seen all of the various versions I admit I am confused by which is the best/latest to choose? Naturally if one is confused about such issues, it is always best to avoid flashing - and to seek advice before proceeding.
Ideally I am looking for the least difficult and most trouble free flashing methedology - which would preferably (hopefully) allow flashing from within Windows.
My drive is a bulk version (i.e. not an OEM drive) so any pointers to the latest/best firmware version for these drives would be very much appreciated.
The reason I am doing this of course is for better compatibility with recent media and better reliability when burning certain media types.
I am less interested - and indeed have never as far as I recall, watched any DVD movies with this drive. Whatching DVD movies on my PC is on the whole just not something that I do.
