I'm thinking of popping for a NEC 2500A, but I find it discouraging to see the following on NEC's site: "We do not currently sell DVD/CD-RW drives directly to consumers and do not provide drivers or firmware for these drives. Please check with the vendor or OEM that you obtained the drive for support and updates"
???- So does that mean that there is no "official" firmware, that is anything goes? I can understand going with TDK and getting firmware updates from them, but what about the OEM folks that goto say newegg?
