put the writer secondary master and on the other cable the hdd- master and the cd-rom- slave, if you got one. Hope it works
And for the firmware.. I had originally 1.0 version and the writer didn't recognize the 48x write speed. I upgraded to 1.02 and now 48x speed works, but now it doesn't show correctly the available speeds for writing a specific cd... For ex., an imation 32x compatible can be written at 40x.
And pls. tell me where did you find the 1.03 version of the firmware???
Does anybody know how can I find out which is the manufacturer of my lg 8481b? I's not an original, it has only 1 led on the front panel.
p.s. I am VERY pleased of my writer's performance.
