I am purchasing WH14NS40 to be put into a new system build that a computer store is going to put together for me. I understand that there is a Firmware update (WH14NS40_1.01-A1 released Apr. 23, 2013) for this blu-ray drive. Is it safe for the firmware to be installed from the LG site without riplock being added to the blu-ray writer? The computer store technician is suppose to install firmware updates, but I am wondering if I should tell him not to for this blu-ray drive…maybe some additional steps need to be done and I should do it myself instead of the technician?
Do blu-ray drives that are purchased without riplock, end up having riplock by installing firmware updates? I am also not sure if I should automatically do firmware updates whenever new ones are released. I have never installed firmware before and am hoping someone can give me some advise.
