What is the latest firmware for the BENQ DW1655 - I have 2, one is BCGB and the other BCDB?

Thanks!


#63

Hi :slight_smile:
The latest is BCGB. The third letter changes, so the next f/w could be BCHB.
Note that BCGB is still not widely available, but I’ve not experienced any probs with this f/w.


#64

Thanks! Just updated the other drive to BCGB. Still have one to take out of the box so not sure what that one is.
