I can’t wait to get the SOHW-812s I just ordered, becuase my DRU-500AX is dying (makes some funny clicking sounds when a disc is inserted, and intermittantly fails to read a disc). I have read soooo much in here about upgrading the firmware to burn DL (It’s like taking a drink from a fire hydrant), and was wondering if anybody can point me in the right direction to view a STEP-BY-STEP how to do this firmware upgrade. I have not done very much firmware upgrading, the last time was on the DRU-500 and it was a nightmare for me. Still trying to remember why every time I tried to run a particular exe that my comp cut off and restarted completely. Had something to do with checking or unchecking a setting but I can’t remember.
Anyway, I will be more than likely upgrading this thing within the next 2 weeks, may even have to find a couple of DVD9-R’s.
What are going to be the things I will have to watch out for?
What impact does the liteon burners have on playability on regular DVD players?
Thanks to any & all who can help me on these things
