[QUOTE=touchdown_1;2613105]So this will update the firmware on the BH10NS30?[/QUOTE]

Not by default, since the drive ID strings and the firmware versions are different, but it can be ‘convinced’ to do so (OEM crossflashing) since both drives share the same core… once you do that, the drive ID will then become “hp BD-RE BH38L” (since the BH10NS30 lacks LightScribe support, crossflashing won’t enable this option). The direct equivalent of the BH38L would be the BH10LS30 …

TSST SN-506AB Blu-ray Writer Firmware FT04, Released 07.02.2012, Fujitsu-Siemens OEM

Link: http://support.ts.fujitsu.com/Download/ShowDescription.asp?SoftwareGUID=2EC132EA-1987-4CDD-8B22-C408CFA93C6B&Info=FTS

Change log:

Changes from FT02 to FT03:

  1. After using BD-RE/TL, an internal parameter is not cleared at putting DVD-R/SL, DVD-R/DL, DVD+R/SL or DVD+R/DL media into ODD.
    So, at writing DVD-R/SL, DVD-R/DL, DVD+R/SL or DVD+R/DL media after using BD-RE/TL, the PUH strikes media many times.
  2. The writing quality of BD-RE/TL 3rd layer is not good. OPC writing length becomes longer than old FW.
  3. Fix for the Linux automount issue.

Changes from FT03 to FT04:

  1. Fix for Reading and booting problems from WinXP CD-ROM.
