The hardware is identical. The software that comes with the DRU500A and DRX500UL is on a CD-ROM disc and you will need to download the latest updates to the software from the Internet. The DRU500AX and DRX500ULX comes on a DVD-ROM disc and has all the latest software updates included. Both drives can be updated to the same, latest firmware.

No, the 500A(X) and the 510A have different hardware and therefore it’s impossible to upgrade the 500A(X) to the 510A through firmware. The 510A has up to 4X +RW write speed and slightly better 4X -R writing performance compared to the 500A(X).
