I just purchased a Benq DW 1640 DL drive from newegg with firmware bshb. I want to update the firmware but I was just wondering how do I do it? Do I use the latest first or the other way around.
The best way is to visit the Benq Sub-Forum (http://club.cdfreaks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=92) where you will get all the appropriate answers.
Do u wanta get the original firmware or the hacked on that have region free?
I want to get the most out of the burner.
Get the new Firmware from BenQ here:
and read up on MCSE tool. At the very least you will want to increase rip speed. Then read up and see what others have done with the type of media you are using. The 1640 is kind of new so it will be a while before anything absolute becomes clear.
