TSST TS-L632x firmwares

I have a TSST TS-L632D (Dell) and im wondering if flashing the lets say Acer or Asus firmware would “brick” it. I want to do this because it looks like Dells version of this drive is gimped compared to Acer/Asus. Acer/Asus can burn DVD-DL, Dells cant and from what I can see the drive specs say it can. Thoughts?

Better leave it.
