It's been about 7 years since I've had to up the firmware on one of my writers. Things have been going so well, these last years. I checked mine. But, there is not information on what the update is correcting/adding. There was a link for removing the region restrictions -- not my thing.

Thanks for the link. I'll see if I can find out what these updates are intended for.

Just make sure that the firmware that you are updating is for your exact model of drive, otherwise, you will most likely toast it and render it useless.

Always. It has to be a good reason, too. Otherwise, leave it be! If the firmware flash said it would do something like up the burner speed from 4x to 8x, stop making coasters with certain media, or resolve an issue with data structure during burn... I'd consider it. But, when there is no explaination AND the thing is working fine... no way.
