Ok to use "B" Fw on 1640 that came with "G" Fw

vbimport

#1

I did a couple of searches and didn’t find anything my 1640 flashes fine with b firmware but it seems like the performance has dropped. Broken TRT’s and not getting full speed burn I flashed to “B” firmware a long time ago and only used this burner to scan now I am going to burn w/it but wanted to see what the deal is with the 2 diff. fw’s.

Flashing retail FW on an OEM drive must have been successful for some, like in the link above. :iagree:

Which specific firmware did you flash it with? Is it being used internally or in an enclosure?

I should’ve done some more rsearch before posting sorry.

It ia in an external now. I tried 164B BEGB got better burst rate but get same burning speed and better quality with BSRB just lower burst. is there a newer version of the 164B newer than BEGB = 2005.
it’s working ok in an external 1394 initio fw 4.73
I realize now that GSOB firmware was put on my a reseller = same hardware :doh:
