  2. Go to Device Manager and select your drive and hit Properties.
    Nero InfoTool works too: www.cdspeed2000.com

    The quickest way to find out the firmware version is try and install the latest version firmware,it always tells you the firmware version you have before you update.

    was quickest solution!
    Quicker: Checking display when PC is started- if too quick freeze with break-button when you see optical drive.
