Whats the point of updating firmware?

SONY DVD RW DW-G120A
my drive and whats the point of updating the firmeware,
i read that espically with those sony bastards, that they can manipulate the firmware to be less effective with copying your backup copies of all your expensively bought games,movies and music.

and even if not, why fix whats already broken.

besides gaining faster speeds, which is pointless to burn at the max possible speed.

Muhahaha, who told you that …??
Firmware updates are a standard and necessary with optical burners these days! :iagree:
