Hello everyone! I’m new here at CDFreaks.com fourms and especially new to the DVD Writer scene. It feels like 1998 again when new CD-R/RW writers were hitting the market left and right…
I recently purchased the LG 4082B after much debate and head scratching.
The drive is labelled as having Firmware Revision A201 (manufactured in April 2004).
Can any experienced 4082 users recommend a firmware revision for usage?
I went to LG’s service site to check the latest firmware, and it is A206. Should I use this firmware, or is it reported to have problems?
Also, what advantages do Hacked Firmware Revisions have over manufacturer firmware? Any comments on the risk of using such firmware, like decreased compatibility, instability, and so on?
TIA for those that can answer/help out.
Off Topic: CDFreaks.com & Forums helped out a lot when I had to make a purchase decision
In the end the LG 4082B was my choice because of value, features, and general concensus that it is a great drive.
** I know I’m going to kick myself when the 4120B is released. But I’ll get strarted with the 4082B for now **
