DRU-800A Firmware



Hi. I have a Sony DRU-800A IDE burner. I have been happy with it so far, however it will occasionally burn a DVD that will freeze up near the end. I purchased 100 blank DVD+Rs, I forget the brand right now, so I understand it can be the media.

To my dismay, I notice that Sony seems to have given up at the KY06 firmware revision. I have been told that there is a Lite-ON firmware that will work, but I am reluctant to try that. I had a Plextor formally, and I had upgraded to some firmware I didn’t like. When I downgraded again, the drive basically became useless until Plextor came out with a new firmware. If I were to update the Sony, could I safely go back to KY06 if there is a problem?

Also, what is the alternative firmware?

Thanks! :smiley:
