I have a sony DW U18A. I have been having some trouble with it and it was recommended i update firmware. There does not seem to be any from sony. But looking through this forum its seems other options are available, but I don't quite understand them. These are the ones I've found:
UYS1 (from dhc014's Firmware site): I think I read somewhere that this one is quite old (Feb 04) and maybe not the best to use.
Firmware for Lite-on SOHW-812S: apparently the same drive with different badge, so should work (my drive is the gear driven model, is this firmware still going to work)
Firmware for Lite-on SOHW-832S: Maybe I'm completely confused, but apparently this firmware makes my drive dual layer capable???
As i said, I'm a novice at this and feel well out of my depth. Any advice as to what I should do would be hugely appreciated.
P.S.- I've never flashed a drive before, so any help with how to do that would also be great!
