Hey, all. I'm a newbie to the firmware scene. Old hat at a lot of other stuff (networking, security, etc.).
Anyway, I've gotten a LTR-522446 recently and am wondering about updating the firmware. It's just a little slow on the burning end. It runs anywhere between 16-18X, no faster. here's the setup:
512 MB of 333 DDR
Asus A7V8X mobo
2x IBM 60GB Deskstar 10K rpm (same IDE chain)
Toshiba M1202 DVD
the 52246 (drives on same chain)
The only reason the HDs and CDRW/DVD are on the same chains are the placement of my case. (Antec SOHO Big-Boy)
I use Roxio to burn with, but probably need to switch to something else (as I haven't noticed too many people on these boards that do). Roxio is what reports it as 16-18X, but I don't know if that's really the speed.
Anyway, if someone could help me figure out how to check the firmware revision then give a little advice on whether or not I need to upgrade it, I would greatly appreciate it.
