Recommended 2510A Firmware

Hello everyone,

I’ve spent ages reading up on all the different firmware’s for my NEC 2510A but still find myself unable to make a definitive choice on which firmware to apply. It seems as though some firmwares are better than others depending on the media… so it’s almost impossible to determine which one I should be using. Basically, I’m not particularly bothered about riplock and rpc. Some modified/quicker burn strategies would be nice, but isn’t essential.

Most importantly I just want SL/DL bitsetting and good, reliable burns.

I’m lead to believe that I can use:

Herrie’s 107v2b5
DVDBoost’s HP520A221
TDB’s 2510_2F7

Given my needs, can anybody recommend which one I’m best off using? I can’t make head nor tail of all those surface scans and graphs…

Many thanks for your time.

PS - I can’t use the 3500’s 2.17 firmware either, right?

Herrie’s 2.16 works great for me.


#3

For the moment I am using TDB 2510-2F7 because some of the writing strategy’s are better (for me especially Princo and RitekR02) and it has bitsetting.


#4

Try the MadDog 2.F7 firmware (has SL Bitsetting) and post your results. We need more guinea pigs!!


#5

Correct me if I’m wrong, but Herrie’s 2.16 doesn’t support SL bitsetting, right? http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=102618&page=1&pp=25&highlight=herrie+2.16

It’s SL bitsetting I need most of all…

So NEC 2510 (MadDog) 2.F7 at tdb.rpc1.org is for you.


#7

what about the oem version of the drive?


#8

Does the 3500 firmware work?


#9

No. Don’t try it.
