How to identify firmware

howdy. i’m just about to get my benq 1620 Pro OEM model any day now that i ordered from newegg. i wanna be ahead of the game when i install it, so my question is how do i know what firmware comes with it. will it be on the cd-rom, on the box perhaps, or on the hardware. is there a obvious way to tell whether it came with the B or G firmware. i hate to flash if it isn’t necessary.

this is the one i ordered.

Welcome to BenQ camp. :wink:

Nice drive :iagree: I’m sure you will be happy with it.

To identify firmware when drive is mounted… simply download Nero InfoTool and you will get all information needed. CD/DVD Speed on same page can also come handy.
