Ok, since I'm having problems with the T20L, and several references say the E50L external drive uses the T20L for it's drive, can I flash my laptop with E50L firmware? Would it do catastrophic damage? Would I be able to recover it if it doesn't function?
I'm ready to get a new drive anyway, so if all we are talking about is losing DVD drive functionality, then I'm game "in the name of science:
If it would potentially screw up my laptop or BIOS, etc, then I'll pass.
