Ok, I just received my 2510A and frankly this is the first time I ever received an optical drive after reading so much official/not-so-official stuff about it (my last burner was a Plextor 12/10/30, plug and burn…) that I feel I might set off a nuclear detonation upon making one mistep.
Ok first things first, I’m planning to use Herrie’s firmware to allow bitsetting on DVD+RWs. I assume it’s best to bet on the 2k5107v2b5dl.rar file.
Now from what I’ve read, Herrie made firmwares for the 2500 which are compatible with the 2510A. However he says “To flash from one drive type to another, you must flash with a BIN file in real DOS”.
1- Does it mean i need another file prior to 2k5107v2b5dl.rar?
2- Does it mean i need to get the Dos version of the 2k5107v2b5dl.rar file?
Also, I’m planning to set my drive as primary slave (Primary master is for my Pioneer DVD-Rom drive, the Promise controller handles my HDDs). Does this affect the firmware flashing in any way?
Now I’ve read the sticky faqs on the NEC forum. Are there any “90% of the ppl screw this on this one step” mistake I should be aware of?
I’ll wait for some possible replies before I plug it in with my fingers crossed. It’s currently sitting on my desk like the Lost Ark.
Thanks in advance for your help.
