Is this thread still alive???
Well, I recently updated my "SONY DVD+-RW DW-Q58A" optical drive firmware from Dell's website, but I ran into a slight problem - more of an annoyance. While playing a game (CNC3) - the drive spins at a really high rpm which creates more heat than it did before the update. Also, after exiting the game, the drive continues to spin at a high rpm, it doesn't stop and it gets pretty hot. I'm trying to find the original firmware that came with the laptop since 04-25-06. Has anyone had this problem??? Pleeease help. Thanks in advance.
