I’ve had this burner since 11/04 and have used live update whenever new firmware was available. Never a problem until I flashed to A089. This one prevented my burner from making multisession data discs. First session was O.K., wouldn’t burn another session. I wanted to go back to A188 but I couldn’t find it so I downloaded A187 from one of the links on this site. That version is good–no problem with multisession discs. No more updates for me on this burner–I learned my lesson!
