I have just recently purchased a Dual X-1. Do I need to flash it to make it a true pioneer. Is it easy to do? Also, if I'm using a Sony DVd rom. Do I need to flash that too? Is anyone else using it too.
You have to use DVRFlash in order to patch Memorex True 8X. If you use the official Pioneer firmware it does not recognize the Memorex True 8X as a Pioneer drive. I have successfully patched my Memorex True 8X to become a Pioneer DVR-107 by using the DVRFlash and the hacked Pioneer 1.05 firmware which unlocks 6X and 8X DVDR burning.
