HD-A740GX what happens if i use european firmware on a north american machine?

[qanda]This thread is about the Liteon HD-A740GX. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]hello, i have a liteon HD-A740GX and i am wordering if anyone knows what would happen if i put european firmware on a machine purchased in north america?

here’s the global firmware page:


the reason i ask this is because my player, with the latest north american firmware won’t accept taiyo yuden (yuden000 t03) 16x dvd+r blank dvds to record on. it keeps spitting them out and if i try to transfer anything, it freezes the recorder and i have to unplug it. it will play the discs if they have content on them however.

i’m wondering if the european firmware would make these discs acceptable to the recorder?

if i can’t use the european firmware on my device, can anyone show me which discs my player supports?
