[QUOTE=Who Cares;2274594]Ok allan i was really confused about alot of different info im getting and still kinda am. let me explain: I have read EVERY POST on this subject gotta teel ya CDFreaks has the most, but at the same time alot of people are contradicting one another on this page - http://club.cdfreaks.com/f92/benq-how-flasher-171380/index2.html
"Make sure your SONY DRU-810 drive isn’t a SONY DRU-810-R because if you try crossflashing it to BENQ 1640 firmware you’ll kill the drive. There’s a thread about it in here."
And i think your saying the opposite. i have also read the difference is THe -R is BenQ1640 and the one without the -r is BenQ1650 and by putting the wrong firmware you will kill the drive. Sorry i dont have time to find the link right now but you get my point. Any i found the solution: If ANYONE is thinking of crossflashing you should consult this page first
Just select your Drive and it will take you the proper firmware.
I do have 2 questions tho. .
#1. Has anyone sucessfully cross flashed a Sony DRU-810A minus the "R"
And with Exactly what BenQ Firmware cause i was going to use the dw1650bcic firmware and wasn’t sure.
#2. I downloaded this “810A_1.0f.zip” from the sony website and it seems to b the newest update. “I think” and am not sure but it seems to be BenQ with sonys name on it. IE: When i use DVDdecrypter and choose the BenQ my sony shows up and WORKS!! if this new update allows the sony DRU-810A to work with, and AS a BENQ Drive y are people still flashing???
Sorry for the long post i did ALOT of research. But maybe not enough.[/QUOTE]
No, I am saying that the Sony 810A -[B]R is a BenQ DW 1650.[/B]
[B]The Sony DRU810A is a BenQDW1640. Do not get them mixed up.[/B]
