Hi guys.
Am totally new to the firmware department, so a lil help will clear alot of doubts.
I have a ASUS 5224A CD Burner with firmware version 1.35( Nero Info Tool) . Recently checked the ASUS website & 1.40 is available for my burner. Should I go for it ?
And what precautions must be taken while updating the firmware. Their site suggests something about DMA & PIA mode, & i don’t a bit about them.
Looking forward to your replies. Thanks

I’d recommend using ASUS’ ODDUpdat program. Follow whatever they tell you to do there. Flashing ASUS drives can be tricky so don’t neglect any of their recommendations.
