Hey I’m moving my crossflashed DVD-burner from my old computer to my new one.

  1. Will it stay crossflashed during the switch?
  2. Will the firmware still be on it?

#2

yes it will. the firmware is a part of the drive. it doesn’t reside on your system, but inside the drive itself.

whatever f/w is on the drive when you take it out will remain on the drive wherever you happen to reinstall it.


#3

Thanks, than I should be able to move it and not worry about anything?


#4

that’s correct!

whether you install it in the same system or your friends computer or wherever, the firmware that’s on the drive stays on the drive until you flash it.

Just make sure you connect and set up/jumper the drive correctly.
