A little bit of information on Toshiba SD-R5372: It is debuted in October 2004, is the first DVD recordable drive developed by Toshiba Samsung Storage Technologies (TSST) to be distributed under the Toshiba brand name.
A good advantage of not being distributed under the TSST brand name is you will get better supports in terms of firmwares and drivers. Just ask a TSST drive user and they will tell you how hard it is to get useful information on TSST drivers. As for this particular Toshiba SD-R5372 firmware, the firmware upgrade allows users to take an already robust optical storage device and turn it into the ultimate tool for creating DVDs quickly and easily.
The firmware upgrade process is pretty straight forward. Just download the firmware and execute it on Windows. If no compatible drive is found, an error message will pop out [The target drive is not found]. This will eliminate the chances of flashing the firmware into a wrong model of drive.
