I recently was exposed to DVD movie backing when a friend of mine purchased a DVD burner. I had him back a movie of mine, The Last Samurai, in the DVD+R format and it worked great , except for on my xbox (Samsung drive).
Basically here’s my situation:
I’m fairly confident that by bitsetting the DVD+R’s to a DVD-ROM format will fix the problem with my xbox. I read that by “flashing” or “installing firmware” to the NEC 2510A will allow for this bitsetting. I’m not concerned with bitsetting any Dual Layer discs at the moment, I’m only considering the 2510A over the 2500A because the prices are almost identical (maybe for DL in the future). So my question is this - Which firmware program would be sufficient for my situation, (Herrie’s, DVDINFOplus, ect…) and how does this flashing process work? I do understand that the firmware causes a permanent change on the DVD drive (and voids warrenty).
Finally, if anyone has imput on how successful this drive would be for my purposes (including the backing of 2-3 hour DVD’s), along with information about burning 4x media at an 8x speed with this burner (a minor concern) it would be appreciated. Thank you
