You can check your firmware versions with burn programs suchs as Nero, CloneCD, etc. You can also use Nero InfoTool to check your version. Usually a newer firmware is always better than a previous version. But I also have a rule: if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. What do you need it for?

And over all firmware 1.02 is fine fo all :o)
That s what i have

1.04 does give you benefits like better compatiblity and a few fixes but it also does something else. Like some new firmwares for other brands and drives of CDRWs, I think it also changes the requirements for the CDRW to change from 20x to 24x, with PowerRec II. As in, before with 1.03, I was able to burn almost all my cds at 24x (btw I use low-quality light-green cds for my cdrw, so if you use high quality ones I guess it won’t matter), but with 1.04 around half the time it just stops speeding up at 20x. I just changed to a different spindle of cdrs and its better now, but there are still times when it only goes up to 20x. Not that big of a deal, but it is something to keep in mind.
