Firmware Update ?s

Am I allowed to ask questions about how to download and install a Firmware Update in this forum? I have an HP Media Center PC with a 640b internal DVD Writer. I called HP support but find it near impossible to find anyone who speaks English that I’m able to understand.
I know where to download from and have printed the information out.
I’m not that good with computers and still have a few questions. They may sound dumb but I understand that if I screw up that it will damage the drive.
Any Pros out there? :rolleyes:

Hi HDFATBOYDOC,
Yeah, this is the wrong forum and we’ll probably get chased out.
Recommend you post in optical drives or newbie forum.
I’m certain there are some pros lurking about, unfortunately I am not one of them. I’m your basic shadetree mechanic when it comes to pcs, built a few, troubleshoot the 6 pcs at home and a few friends and neighbors, but that’s about it…be glad to help you out though.

Anyway, many ppl update firmware without a problem and yes, you can upgrade to a very expensive paperweight… :eek:
Just follow the instructions…exactly.

Anyway, post a new thread and you’ll get the help you need…post the link to the firmware and instructions as well. We’ll need to know the actual manufacturer, eg., Benq, LG, Liteon, etc.

[Edit]
Good idea to include current issues…why you want to update… :wink:
