I'm also looking for this firmware (8481B), so if someone finds it, please let us know where is it.... Meanwhile, I've got the firmwares 1.02 and 1.03 for 8480B (just in case someone wants it). Note however that I've not yet tried to flash mine, but read news about mtkflash not being able to reflash those cdrws....

FTC if we find the (8481B) firmware and install it will it also make the re-write speed faster to 24x from 12 ?

DDR-PIII,

Yes... if it worked. Unfortunately, it has been tested in cdrfreaks forums to flash a 8400B with a 8480B firmware, and did not work, so I suspect a 8400B is NOT flashable any further. What I want to do is flash my other cdrw (8480B) to a 8481B, thus making my cdrw speed 24 from 16.

DDR-PIII,

I'm not sure the change is worth 30$. Note that the recording time difference between a 40x LG and a 52x LITE ON may only be about 20 secs/full cd, plus it's said that going over 48x is too risky for CD's integrity (they have a tendency to explode at such high speeds.... seriously). Besides, the LG 40x is a great burner.

DDR..,

Yes, but the fact is : If it had been a 32x or 40x CDRW, you would still have your wordperfect 8 cd AND your 52x drive (assuming it got damaged, as most reports of in-cd explosion indicate).... and as said, the performance difference isn't that much.
