:bow: Tell us is there any huge difference in this two firmwares?
Burn strategies updates cause any advance for MCC004/TY003 and other “class1”?

What about 1.85. All burn strategies was updated.

Will this firmware be bundled with BT and other stuff :slight_smile:

MadDog OEM firmware 1.f3 has latest strategies. Does numbers of burn strategies for 4550A MadDog similar to 4551A (1-Z2, 1-X3 and 1.85).
MadDog 1.F3 firmware has 1.11 for DVD+R when even 1.85 for 4551A has 1.06m.

PS: One more thank you for all like this :flower: :flower: :flower:
