    As a general rule on firmware, you only update the firmware if there is a problem with your drive that needs corrected. If the drive is working as it should with proper burns and playback, I would not upgrade.
    As to master /slave, I'm guessing the 4160 is a slightly better drive so I would make it master. Keep this in mind. Sometimes 2 drives made by the same company and on the same IDE cable may cause conflicts between the 2 drives. If this should happen, put the better drive as MASTER on the secondary IDE and the other drive as Slave on the primary IDE cable. Having them on different IDE cables usually corrects the problem. This doesn't always happen but is something to remember just is case. Good luck.
