[QUOTE=MrPete1985;2599503]thanks for the info. after a little more digging I found that there is not even a firmware update for the american model of this drive just the korean model so I can’t do anything really.[/QUOTE]There is no problem using firmware from their korean site.
On the other hand, this is just another piece of OEM firmware like the OEM firmware from Dell, HP, Acer or whoever the manufacturer of your laptop is. So such a firmware has to be applied by crossflashing methods as described in the FAQ.
