  1. Great comment Adam. I have been able to upgrade with NTFS installed though so I’m not sure that is the exact problem. main issue has been that you need to make sure the adaptor is in PIO not DMA mode otherwise the firmware update won’t work.

  2. I have same burner – Grade A Media – Rite G4 Purple gets V pixelated towards end of films
