    Hi there, Was passing through when I saw your question. I don't hang out in the games sections but I think I can answer this for you. Flashing(as in firmware) is the same as installing a small program or set of instructions to a piece of hardware like a Burner drive. These instructions are stored on the hardware and won't change unless you flash it again with a newer set of instructions. The firmware tells the hardware how to work properly. Hope this is what you were looking for.
