Well, my original serial number was:
0102-1840-0090-B203 (103-010D) (that last one is a "D", not a "0"
So what does that tell me about the system and drive versions of the firmware?
(BTW, my unit has a 11/04 manufacturing date, so the 0102 doesn't make sense as a date).
Then I did the firmware upgrade using the Liteon site's latest firmware version from earlier this week.
Firmware update: LNFA1000.E30.0102.184x
System update: LNFA1098.ESU.0102.184x
and my SN changed to:
0102-1840-0098-B208 (103-010D) (again, the last character is a "D", not a "0".)
So, what does that tell me about the firmware versions (drive and system) it thinks it has on my system?
Both of the firmware upgrades indicated they were successful when I did the upgrade?
