Chipset identification



Other than reading from the people on this site, how does one find out which chipset is in a given burner?
Is there a program which identifies the chipset being used?
The reason I ask is just for hypothetical reasons. For example, the great OptiArc burners with the NEC chipsets…what if, for some reason, they switch chipsets for cost reasons. How would one know?




the only other way to find out the chipset of the drive is dismantling and having a look at. :wink:
Normally, with another chipset, the drive gets a (slightly) new name.
