Hi, I just bought a Lite-On LH-20A1L for my system and I have some questions. First, is it a good drive? I read pretty good review at CDRLabs about it and people seem to like it. What I use it for the most now is backing up movies. I use AnyDVD and CloneDVD 2 for my software.
Secondly and this is a bit obvious. I went to the Lite-On site to upgrade my firmware and downloaded it and it wouldn’t upgrade it. It gave me this error: Error This Utility is only for LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1L drive. I found that odd since this was the drive until I saw on here firmware updates. The firmware update I d/led was BL02. The firmware update that is on the drive is BL05. That seems odd to me that the Lite-On site has a firmware revision that is 3 revisions old…that is if they go sequentially and not skip any numbers.
Having said that, I know sometimes new firmware updates can actually cause problems and so one might want to install an older version. I don’t want to do this currently, but I’m wondering if it’s possible if I so wish in the future?
