    Hi Guys , i just ordered a Samsung SH-D163A with Kreon v.80 , but now i've noticed theres a v.81 , do i need to re-flash the drive when it arrives ? or are the two versions the same thing ?

    i believe that the newer kreon 8.1 does more with program like backup creater.. it makes it easier.. i think.. but yea just flash the new one.. you dont wanna have the old one if the new one is out..

    right mateys before anyone gets confused there are 2 different kreon firmwares !

    kreon v081 is for the samsung SH-D162C ide dvd-rom
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Samsung-SH-D1...yZ112848QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem





    kreon v080 is for the samsung SH-D163A sata dvd-rom
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SAMSUNG-SH-D1...oryZ3754QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD2VQQcmdZViewItem

    the links i have provided are examples of the different drives flashed with the right kreon firmware .

    p.s. i do not know the ebay sellers selling these drives i am only using their auctions as an example so its upto you if you buy any of them !

    i wouldnt recommend flashing your samsung SH-D163A with kreon v.081

    stick with the right kreon firmware for the right dvd/rom !

    kreon v081 is for the samsung SH-D162C ide dvd-rom

    kreon v080 is for the samsung SH-D163A sata dvd-rom

    @ walnutss , just a tip -

    i have the samsung SH-D162C with kreon v081 and i use xbox backup creator or schtrom v.3 to backup my original xbox360 games .

    xbox backup creator is an all in one program that will rip and burn xbox 360 games .

    schtrom v.3 will rip games but you will need imgburn to burn the image it creates .

    just thought id let you know the programs i use with my samsung SH-D162C kreon v081 dvd/rom

    this is a very good link to get you on your way to successful burning http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/428237#2730497
