Just a heads up for anyone who's updating the 1008. I did Liveupdate for V0060 last week. Details about the revisions are sketchy (if they exist at all), so I was hoping to get the old beast to recognize some more 8x media.
Everything was going as planned, but the updater program took a major dump at about 75% complete.
I was patient. I took a smoke break. I drank a beer. Went back 20 minutes later, and the #^$$%*&$ thing still said it was updating.
Gave it the 3-finger salute. Nope, can't kill the process.
There was no activity light on the drive, so I checked to make sure I had enough cash for a new drive & hit the PC's power switch.
The DVD Gawdz were smiling on me, because when the PC rebooted, I still had a functioning drive that recognized the 8x +R's I just bought.
Talk about a nerve wracking night. You could have the same thing happen to you, so this is just something to be aware of.
