thanks for the reply guys

the liteon version for the 800 is the better for media support, code’s id patch is the best firmware to flash to the sony

I hardly think that 8 MIDs makes a huge difference.

it does for fuji media id strat swaps, getting 16x out of the fuji03, much better performance through fujifilm04 than what you get with the sony, which doesn’t have it

True, but it can simply be added with MCSE and DVD Identifier, if necessary.
