When I updated the firmware on my AOpen 32x drive (last year), I selected the "backup firmware" option in the flasher from AOpen's site, but it didn't work.
It depends on who the true manufacturer of the drive is. If it's a Ricoh like I assume your 32x was, then it helps to enable Windows 98/ME compatibility mode on the program when flashing if you want to make a backup.
