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.
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 is there a newer version of the 164B newer than BEGB = 2005.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
