New ND-2510A 2.06 Firmware

You can find it here in binaries (original and patched from TDB): http://tdb.rpc1.org/#ND2510A

Or its original Windows Flasher is here: NEC ND-2510A

This firmware should continue the pattern from 2.05 of bitsetting to DVD-ROM for +R DL discs by default. The WinBType tool should let you change it though.

I don't have one of these so it's up to all of you NEC users to post your experiences!

Build Dates:
2.15: 5/14/2004
2.05: 5/21/2004
2.06: 6/24/2004

Re: New ND-2510A 2.06 Firmware

What an odd versioning scheme... that .05 and .06 is newer than .15...

Edit: Support for RITEK-D01-01 +R DL has not been added in this firmware.

Cool!

I've just downloaded it. Where does it come from? It is not an officially posted update from NEC, is it?

Re: New ND-2510A 2.06 Firmware

2.06 can read the liteon 832 bitset DL disk 2.15 could not. It also still reads the DL i burned on 2.15 fw with no bitsetting.

Not sure where exactly it comes from, but it doesn't really matter. All original firmwares for NEC drives are created by NEC so...

I didn't see it on any NEC website.

Re: New ND-2510A 2.06 Firmware

dhc014 is right it does not matter , there are bug fixs in this fw the cant read liteon 832 DL with booktype of dvd-rom is now fixed, before it saw this disk as blank. So thats one thing and look at my scan above the pi level is wonderful for that +R burn. you just got love nec drives no matter what fw they have.

Re: New ND-2510A 2.06 Firmware

Would be nice if it 1.06 supported bitsetting on SL.

Oops, it was a bad link from the start. Fixed now. Yes, it is only a temporary link. I will change it once another link is available.

Re: New ND-2510A 2.06 Firmware

just burned new firmware 2.06 to my nec2500a and got my personal best burn ever. the following k-probe scan was a TYG01 burned @4x. the best ever that my nec2500a would burn these with herrie's 107b5 firmware was always up in the 80's and 90's at the beginning and end with an average of around 55 or 60 po's.

Re: New ND-2510A 2.06 Firmware

updated firmware to version 2.06 now it only wants to burn Ritek G04 and G05 at 2.4x
Can this be correct? been using herries 1.7 v2 beta 5 and burning both those media types at 8x without any problems

EDIT: oops I think i had a blonde moment just then, ok its 6:30am and i'm still sleepy, would you believe i had put the media in the wrong drive

All is ok, oh and. firmware V2.06 will now burn RiteK G05 media at the correct speed (8x)

Re: New ND-2510A 2.06 Firmware

I don't know what the rated speed is for that media, but Herrie's firmware has modded media info in it to enable burning ceartain media at higher speeds whereas 2.06 does not have the speeded up media hacks.

Can anyone confirm 100% that 2.05 and 2.06 set booktype to DVD-ROM for DVD+R DL disks for me please?

(My ND-2510A and some +R DL verbatim media are turning up next week, and I'd like to know before I burn one, as they are too damn expensive to find out by trial and error. )

PS: yeah agreed that the numbering system is weird where 2.05 & 2.06 are newer than 2.15!!!
