3 Questions Before Flashing Benq
Posted 03 April 2008 - 12:12 AM
2. I have read some stuff about 8x and 12x Iextreme burning out your laser faster than stock firmware, is this correct?
3. I have heard that the stock firmware changes disc read speeds depending on the needs of the game, and that the 8x and 12x lock the drive at those speeds, so would that mean that if I flashed with 12x it would be even louder than a normal drive?

2. I've never heard this, but possibly, more to do with burned disks needing more power for the Laser...
3. These are the max speeds, as sometimes reducing the top speed makes the drive more compatible with backups...

What about the load times of 8x? Is it worth me opening my Xbox and possibly bricking my drive just for quieter drive speeds?

My BenQ drive went Flashing when i pushed the power button!
4 seconds later my Xbox went out and my drive was bricked.. atleast that is what i thougt.
After redoing the whole process it flashed completely and without errors!

And how do MS find out? Is the DVD constantly broadcasting its firmware version everytime you go on live with it?
