I’ve just bought a Mac Pro with a Optiarc AD-7170A with a firmware version 1.NC. I haven’t seen any information on this version and don’t know if it’s very recent (not mentioned on the developers homepage, that’s NEC/Sony/Optiarc) or old or whatever advantages it may have over e.g. version 1.04.
Then again, there’s also a version 1.85 on Liggy and Dee’s page, which now totally confuses me.
If I just want to flash my drive to RPC-1 without changing too much else (unless it improves a lot of things, but doesn’t make the drive much louder…), is there a reason to wait for a patched version 1.NC, or can I just go and flash my drive with version 1.04? Or should I go with Liggys version 1.02c?
Thanks for any help and please excuse my ignorance, but I’m new to this. I have spent an afternoon trying to answer these questions on my own, but this is how far I’ve gotten.
