Who knows, the 1650&1655 are still not listed on the US site at all. As for me, I'll flash this as soon as I get home to see if it fixes the CDRW issue. If not, I've lost nothing, since I don't have any SolidBurn info stored. Back and forth between BCDB and BCGB shouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately, I'm working on a big CD w/ LightScribe Label project and I am out of things that need to go on DVD at the moment.
