[QUOTE=Albert;2125494]If the drive is running fine for you for now, then you probably don’t need to do anything for it; just keep doing what you’re doing.
In various software applications, the firmware version may be displayed. If the drive was manufactured this year, the firmware name will be 9P5x, where “x” is some number or letter. If you run Nero CD-DVD Speed or Nero DiscSpeed [basically the same thing], it will show you the drive model + the firmware version. Example, from this link, you see that the drive is an Optiarc AD-7203S, with firmware version 1.06. :)[/QUOTE]
