Wonder why I stated that the firmware for Samsung SC-148C is from IBM and not from Samsung? Well, first of all there is no firmware or driver for Samsung SC-148C in Samsung driver download website. The closest that I am able to find is this one from IBM.

From IBM site: Firmware are for Samsung SC-148C CD-ROM drive used in the following supported systems:

- IBM IntelliStation E Pro (Type 6216, 6226)

- IBM IntelliStation M Pro (Type 6219, 6220, 6230, 6225, 6228)

- IBM IntelliStation Z Pro (Type 6221, 6223)

(IBM part number 33P3210, replacement part number (FRU) 33P3211)

Version B107 firmware fixed disc scratch problem while version B105 (inclusive in version B107)
