I have an NEC ND-6100A that came installed in a Dell Precision M60 mobile workstation. I would like to get the best performance and largest number of features available from the physical hardware. Ultimately, what I would like to accomplish is (#1) expand the choices of media that can be used with my hardware to both “+” and “-” dvd and cd media (since I believe the 6100 is limited to only “-” dvd media), and (#2) enable reading (and writing if possible) of dual layer media.
Can that drive be crossflashed (not sure if that is the correct term) to another drive model (like the ND-6500A) to achieve both objectives? Are there other methods to accomplish both of my objectives?
I’m sorry if I sound like a newbie - I am new in this area. Any feedback is seriously appreciated. Many thanks in advance!
