Hi,

I have the DRX-530UL drive, which is currently updated to Firmware version 2.0a dut to the speed issue.

I have now just seen from the Sony site here:

http://www.sonydigital-link.com/OSD/downloads/downloads.asp?l=en&sc=dvd

That firmware version 2.1a is out with the following description:

This new firmware will ensure playback compatibility for DVD+R DL (double layer) disks.

Does this mean it can Read Dual Layer or can it write Dual Layer too.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Gareth.

This means that it can olny Read Dual Layer disks (playback compatibility).

I have a RX850 & a FXA53 and recently bought DRX-530UL for obvious reasons. My problem is that the DRX fails to initialize when any type of disk is inserted!! On my RX850 it is immediatly recognized, I click on eject, the door opens, insert a disk, close the door & I get a message to insert a blank disk. The unit will not take the firmware upgrade for a 510a?!?!? When I try the online diagnostic, I get nowhere because it asks for a blank disk which it does not recognize. Sony support is no help. They have replaced the unit 3 times but no luck. The same happens when I connect with my FXA53. iLink & USB connection isn’t the issue because I get the same results. I’ve even tried a few Dell’s at work, same results . Sony support mentioned a problem with service pack 2, but that does not apply to the RX850 & the Dell’s at work.

There’s a section about windows xp patches & fixes… this might be a good place to start
