Could the speed of the PC be an issue when flashing firmware on an LG drive?
My production machine is a notebook and my LG GSA-4160B normally lives in an external firewire/USB2 enclosure. Not a great firmware-flashing setup.
The only desktop PC I have readily available is a Pentium 233 running Win98. (Hey, it cost me $5.) I’m betting this old thing should be fine for updating the firmware in the LG, but the readme file doesn’t say anything about minimum PC specs. LG could be excused for not considering the possibility that the drive might be installed in a museum piece during an update though, so I’m not entirely comfortable with that.
I can borrow a sexier desktop, but I’d prefer only to risk my own hardware.
