hi all. i just bought 2 samsung sh-s222a dvd writers. one has firmware sa00, the other has sb00. i found new firmware sb02 and updated the respective drive (after using the patching utility to make the drive rpc1 as well) without problem. i cant find newer firmware for the other drive, so assume there is none. i have used the patching utility on this drive also with no problem. my questions are:
a) why the different firmwares?
b)what is the difference(s)
c)is one drive better at reading or writing than the other?
d)i cant cross flash the sa00 drive with sb00 or 02 firmware or vice versa, why?
hope someone can educate me
