    NEC 2510 (Dual layer) firmware works on 2500 ?

    has anyone tried the NEC ND-2500 8x DVD firmware 2510 to get the drive to write dual layer disks ? problem is getting hold of the media at the moment i guess

    and this
    It looks this the 2500a takes the firmware without and problems, the problem is he dosent have any media to test it on. It looks very promosing though

    EDIT: 2510 firmware can be found on this page, all the tools to flash are their too. I dont have the courage

    2nd EDIT: IT WORKS! look here

    3rd EDIT: This could be a serious bargin! The 2150 is on sale in Japan at just under £500!!!! I picked up my 2500a for £80 , oh and apparently the 2100a drive will also flash to 2150.

    Sounds good - but the lack of media and more testing mean that I'm not going to bother for a bit anyway - looks like the 2500a could be a serious bargain (currently retails £60)

    yeap it looks like herrie has come up with the goods again !!!

    Nice one - I'll get someone @ work to get this validated

    edit :: looks like it works according to cdrinfo.com but we cannot test as yet due to the fact that we have no DVD+9 media at the current moment.

    you can copy movies, but you can't make 1:1 copies of dual layer ones, use DVDShrink to do this (qualityis slightly reduced)

    Google dvdshrink, thats the end of that. Anyway DL disks probably wont go on sale for a couple of months yet so we will have to wait for more conclusive evidence. But the first indications are that is wont be any problem , and people were telling me to wait for DL drives.
