Quick help..... Difference between sony dru-500a and dru-500ax



whats the difference guys?


Different firmware versions 1 series vs 2 respectively. A can be flashed with AX firmware. Different box… that’s about it.


can ax be flashed with an a firmware?
i see all kinds of people talking about burning dvd media at 2x that i can only do 1x with with my pioneer a05. they use the 1.0f firmware or something with the dru-500a …
it would be worth it to me to buy one just for the 2x capability with a 1x cost :bigsmile:


an AX with firmware 2.0c has been flashed by accident by a friend of mine to 1.0g and later back to 2.0e for ax

so it should work
