Firmware update for Sony DW-D18a



I am a newbie to this forum and please be patient with me. I am having problems with the burner that came with my desktop. I am planning on updating the present DL burner that I presently own, but in the meantime, does anyone know where I can get an update for my Sony DW-D18A burner? I have googled it as well as search the sony website and have not found any matches. I have a feeling it is too old of a burner to fool around with. Any suggestions? I would be also open to any suggestions for a replacement for this one. I have been considering the Pioneer DVR-111D or the Plextor PX-760A (have heard it is not compatible with the upcomine VISTA system).

Any and all suggestions are welcome!!!


Your burner seems to be an Liteon SOHW 832 rebadge, see here:
