Hi,[quote=YouKnowWho;2197487]It’s been quite some time since a firmware has come out for the Samsung 203b burner. This leads me to believe that the device has reached the end of life period designated by the manufacturer. [/quote]Well, this drive is no longer sold. Its successors were the 203D (no longer sold also) and the recent 223 series drives.
Is this so? How long do you think a manufacturer should provide firmware updates?
Maybe there will be a firmware update, maybe not. Nobody knows.
There are other drive manufacturers (or OEMs) that never publish firmware updates, other companies like LG throw a new model on the market, which is nothing else than the old drive with a newer firmware
That said, firmware support for the 203B wasn’t that bad.
