I'm brand new to this site and dvd copying in general, so hope you don't mind these basic sorts of questions.
I have an NEC 1300A coming in--first dvd recorder for me. I've been looking through the threads on it and have discovered a lot of information regarding firmware updates. For the most part the updates seem to be aimed at fixing compatiblity with various brands of media.
First, how do I figure out which firmware is on the drive?
Second, since I have never updated firmware before, is it much different from flashing a new motherboard bios?
Third---I'm getting an OEM version and NEC says the firmware updates are meant for retail and bundled drives, not the OEM's. Is this true, or just their way of making all the OEM buyers really nervous?
Appreciate any help offered. Glad I found this site.
