No idea. It might be worth a try though.

So about the 8481.. any good reviews on it? I plan to pick one up, but want to know how it stacks up to the other 48-52x drives out there.

I read a lot about 8481B for some time (but usually carelessly) only because it has been the bestselling CD writer in South Korea. 8481B is the best overall CD writer in my recommendation list. (SM-348B for CD-R/CD-RW/DVD-ROM combination drive.)

Buy it if it is very cheap for you. Don't buy it if it costs more than Lite-On's 48x/52x. LG seems to be late in introducing their 52x CD writers, 48/24/48/16 combo drives, and their next DVD writers on the retail market (and OEM too maybe.)

No. 8481 is 48x/24x/40x (I'm not sure about the read speed).

The 52x model has another number, maybe 8520.

ne of you kind enough to mail me your 52x firmware.

cdrinfo poland did a review on the 8520 and also upgraded a 8481 to 8520
more info here but you will have to translate

Interesting! I would be glad to get the firmware if available.

Here is part of that cdrinfo site:
------------
szym grafie:

GCE-8320B -> GCE-8400B
GCE-8401B -> GCE-8480B
GCE-8481B -> GCE-8520B

Jak widać, najpierw na rynku ukazuje się model xxxx0B, po czym wraz z wejściem na rynek szybszego napędu oznaczenia się zmieniają - dotychczasowy xxxx0B staje się xxxx1B, a nowo wprowadzony - yyyy0B. Wynika z tego, że LG w celu oszczędzenia kosztów produkuje w tym samym czasie tylko jeden model nagrywarki, a następnie zapisuje w nim odpowiedni firmware.
----------------


Can anyone translate ? (sorry, some gibberish in it ...)
