    Is there any way to extract the firmare from a CD/DVD drive and "read/edit" it? Just curious.

    Thanks.

  2. Yes.
    It depends on the drive, there are various methods.

    Editing is done with a Hex editor.

    Most "3rd party" firmware update tools (allows you to) read out the existing firmware before updating it, to allow you to make a roll back if something goes wrong.
    Take a look att www.rpc1.org
