Thank you VERY much for posting this. I (unfortunately) bought one of these drives and was furious to see it with firmware adware. I have to say, though, that newegg was great about it and actually refunded the money I paid for it and told me to not bother sending it back (they told me to throw it away or do whatever I pleased with it). I just ran the tool and it worked perfectly. Now I have a free, fast DVD writer! Once again, thank you for posting this!
