Why does my DVD / CD Burner need a firmware update?

The latest firmware will fix many of the bugs that came with your burner when you purchased it. Firmwares also can give you extra capabilities such as making your burner capable of burning Dual Layer Media. I recommend to download a firmware that can enable you to change the booktype, bitsetting of your dvd media.

For Unofficial/Hacked Firmwares that are not supported by the manufacturer I would suggest going to: http://forum.rpc1.org. Just be careful when using the firmwares downloaded there because it will void any warranties and can potential damage your burner. Always research before doing anything.
