Some probably stupid questions.
I’ve bought a LiteOn SHM-165P6S just recently.
I’m not sure what I need to do as a newbie DVD burner.
Is it necessary for me to upgrade the firmware in LiteOn, or could I use straight away?
And what firmware should I upgrade, be it official or third-party?
What should I notice/do when I update the firmware?
Is it dangeorus to do?
If the firmware is faulty, what’re the possible consequences? DVD drive damaged permanently? Or even computer down?
How could I re-flash my original firmware if the new firmware is faulty jut in case?
Is there any tool I should notice/use as an occasional burner who will burn data/music/video backups and test the health of DVD disc?
If so, what and where?
Thanks so much for your help.
