I have seen a lot of posts from members converting Philips drives to BenQÂ´s.
Not that many converting the other way around.
So this evening when I saw the results new Philips firmware is putting up I decided to try a flash on my 1620 drive to the new Philips firmware 3.0.
First, I flashed BenQ drive with 2.2 Philips firmware (cvt) in DOS. Restarted and flashed Philips 3.0 firmware in Windoze.
You already know the result, so there is no more comment needed.
Pros? Hopefully better burn quality. First burn.
Cons? The drive led is acting weird, only lighting read (when burning), but thats a minor disadvantage and quite understandable.
Finally great thanks to this wonderful community and all contributing to this achievement. Special thanks to TDB, ala42, rolling56 and Quikee2.
