Hello all. I have some questions regarding the drive.
I and a friend of mine have bought the same model of the drive,within a week. He got the “old” revision , I got the “New” one. We both successfully updated the firmwares of the drives with the original Lite-On stuff foun on the Lite-On site.
What happens now is that the burning quality of the “new” , no-eeprom drive is considerably higher,and the burning speed also a bit quicker.
Questions:
1 - Is it supposed to be that way,the newer-better?
2 - If the “new” drive works better,then why the sticky thread , with a word “caution” in it?


#2

The warning concerns the fact that flashing the second revision drive the wrong way could cause your drive to no longer function.


#3

And that’s the only bad thing in the new revision of the drive ? That it can be ruined by applying the wrong firmware?


#4

There shouldn’t really be any overwhelming difference in performance.

O.K.
Thanx for the quick ,polite and complete response.
