Yes, that's why I wanna do it too, faster verify.
But I've checked again and the filedate of the Buffalo 02-05 firmware is March 30 2009 (!). And the included textfiles are from mid-April.
How can that be? I mean, the LG BH08 BD-Burners just came out recently, right? So I suspect that the v1.0 firmware might be actually newer that the Buffalo one..
