I noted on the Lite-On website that firmware upgrades can not be reversed. How accurate is this? Surely if the memory on the writer can be edited, it can be edited to an earlier version (if the source code for the earlier one is known). If it’s a one way process, is there any reason why someone would want to keep things the way they are? Sorry for the n00b question.

You can flash back and forth as often as you want using mtkflash. Read the stickies at LiteOn forum
Some of the later firmwares add “audio caching” which isn’t good for ripping with EAC, which might be a reason not to upgrade firmware.
