Relative newbie in ways here and have been pointed to this thread by Arachne, as I have in the past few days taken ownership and installed a new LiteOn drive and the latest settings are as follows;
Drive Manufacturer: LITE-ON
Drive Model: DVDRW LH-20A1H
Drive Firmware Version: DVDRW LH20A1H LL0A 136
Driver Version: 18.104.22.168
Although I had installed as directed by Nero a download from their site which was the 22.214.171.124 version, I then not long after stumbled across the very latest and official LS release which now sits on my system of 126.96.36.199 so all is well there.
I would like to know exactly what and how I go about tweaking my drive for better performance etc (Something I have only just really bothered to look in to much to my dismay learning all there is to know apart from just plonking a standard drive off the retail shelf into your system) lol
Am I best just downloading the latest version of SmartBurn which if I understand my many hours reading these forums the past few days, this is a seperate utility and not actually FirmWare and therefore would leave my manufacturer FW still intact for now
Also if the above is the case, at one point does one choose to actually utilise and put in place user generated FW versions for our drives and also as there is always warnings about it invalidating our warranties, can anyone shed any extra light on how risky it actually is of screwing a brand new bought drive
I look forward as with my previous posts here since joining, to your advise, help and general support to a newbie.
P.S. If anybody has any knowledge about my posts with Arachne on a slightly different note Thread Here and Page 114 onwards, it would be massively appreciated, if anybody could shed any light on one of my drives tray problems.
