LG CED 8080B Question

I know this drive practically belongs in a museum, but I was wondering if anyone knows where to find a changelog for the 1.07 and 1.08 firmware updates. The LG electronics website doesn’t have anything (they don’t even have 1.07 and 1.08 for download) and googling 1.08 only yields a german site that babelfish choked on.

don’t bother looking for one, btspm. I know the 1.07 firmware is for LG CED 8080B drives that came only with DELL computers. so the 1.07 update won’t work on CED-8080B drives that came with other brand computers. looks like the 1.08 update also is for certain OEM systems as well.

The 1.06 firmware was pretty stable, perhaps better than versions 1.07 & 1.08 since the 1.06 version is a generic firmware.

If you look at the 1.07 firmware info for the LG CED-8080B drive here at this Dell page:
http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R25828&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=27467
and expand the “Fixes and Enhancements” section, you will see the changes for v1.07.

I’ve recently taken the LG CED-8080B CDRW drive out of my cousin’s eMachine computer and inserted it into my aunt’s Dell Optiplex GX100 computer and will try out the v1.07 firmware update on there.
