I burned my first Dl disk with the 2510a nec drive. I was a total success. I used Herries beta 5 firmware so i could set the bitsetting to dvd-rom. I set it fine and went from book type dvd+r before burn to dvd-rom after burn . It plays in all my panasonic 740 stand alone dvd player and even in my dvd player in the family van.
If someone tells me what programs to use I will send pics of disk performance so you guys can tell me how it looks. It took 43 minutes to burn 8.3 gb of info. Long time but it is worth it to me if all th disks burn and work like this one.
One question, by using herries cracked firmware beta 5 will any of the features of the 2510a BE altered in a negative way. I just want to make sure I did not change anything in the drive that will cause problems with the drive or its dual layer hardware capabilites. I know I asked this before, but I just want to be sure. If herrie reads this could you please answer
