I have a SH-S182D and I am pretty happy with it. In one of my other machines I was thinking of removing a LG GSA-H10L and replacing it with SH-S182M. I would like to keep the Lightscribe feature so I am interested in the 182M vs 182D for this machine. But it seems that firmware is lagging behind the SH-S182M. The SH-S182D is up to SB04 already. Is this because they are different hardware or since the M model is a later version the D model the earlier D model firmware revisions have been already incorperated?
Does anybody know if they are they really the same burner with just a firmware mod and addition of the lightscribe sensor? Or is it a different chipset.
