Hi there and sorry for asking the same question 1000 other people have already. I just installed my I/O Magic IDVD16DD from Circuit City yesterday and have had 3 coaster burns so far. My dad is realtively new to burning also and he was over visiting yesterday. He said that he had to upgrade his firmware in his burner (different model) before it worked.
[B]My question is this. I am sure my DVD writer is the BenQ model that everyone is talking about here from the clues and things to look for from the other threads. The firmware version on mine is G7C9 according to NeroInfo and DVDInfo, etc.
- What is the best way to upgrade to the BenQ Firmware or the “B” firmware?[/B]
- And do I need to flash to sequential versions or just to the most recent version works? How do you tell what version is older or newer? Just looking at the dates in “properties”?
I have seen many, many diferent posts…was on here from 9:30 pm last night to past 3:00am. I ahve read so many things that my head is now spinning. I was going to just return the burner but then I read about so many people loving it and that is was a gem to find for the price.
Sorry about the length…basically, trying to find in one spot what I need to do to upgrade my writer.'s firmware.
