New 40125W: upgrade?

I’ve bought a new 40125W a few days ago. I have read the posts in this forum and, with my pleasure, I have known that it’s possible to upgrade to 48x writing speed. If I upgrade with VS02 the writer loose some function that the original firmaware does ? And do someone of you know if the the writer will be correctly recognised by easy cd creator 5 and directcd 5 too (the original 48125W is now supported from rel. 5.02d).

Thank you very very much for you help. Congratulations from the forum too!

does anyone knows where i can find update 5.02d

is it already released???


I think 5.02d was the upgrade before 5.1 which is the most corrent update. Get it at

An overclocked drive will have the same program compatibility as the real drive…

ok ,now i have the update 5.11 & 5.3
if i want to use the files ,it says: is geen geldige win32 toepassing

what does that means ,and how do i get the damn updates get to work???
