OK, I'm new, and my backspace key broke tonight, so bear with me. I got an HP 420i 8x DVD+/-RW a little while back, now, recently I've been led to belive that this drive is an OEM NEC 2500A. From what I've seen in the past, a lot of people have been successful in flashing these drives to NEC 2510A's in order to gain DL capabilities, so I was wondering, is it possible to flash my 420i to a 2510A? And if so how do I go about it?? I've updated firmware and stuff before, and I'm no n00b to hardware, I just assume this won't be as straight forward as downloading a flash utility from the companies site and being done with it. So if anyone can tell me if this can be done, and wants to give me hand, I'd really like to hear what I can do with this drive.
