I’m sure this applies to all LG models & perhaps other manufacturers.
I’m curious about the instructions LG gives for their firmware updates. They instruct you to have the burner on the second IDE channel as master with all other burners disconnected. Why is this so?
I have successfully upgraded firmware (SL00 to SL01) on my LG burner & did not have to do the above. My LG burner is on the second IDE channel, but I have it as slave. (I have a TDK CD burner as master on that channel.) That’s the way my set up has always been & I’ve never run into a firmware upgrade problem with any optical drive. I used to have a Lite-On DVD burner where the LG now is & never had firmware issues with that.
What is the reasoning for LG’s instructions? It would seem to me that their instructions would be beyond alot of the computer users out there who know nothing about the hardware on their computers & who never have opened a computer case in their life. Or even if they have, it just seems like alot of trouble to go through to upgrade firmware.
Any answers would be appreciated.
