okay, i was reading on one of the links in herrie’s modding guide that the TDK 880 dvd rw is a rebranded NEC, is there more details about this anywhere else? Because I’m from the states, and not from europe, so to flash a new firmware upgrade from the europe link onto my american TDK would probably be a bad idea. PLUS it’s an 880N RW. I dunno if that N makes any difference, but i’m afraid to eff up my new drive. Anyway, in a nutshell, is it possible for me to get a firmware upgrade where i’m able to use my TDK 880N to DL write?
OKay, second question. IF i CANNOT, upgrade my TDK, or if it’s way TOO COMPLICATED to do, is it just more feasible to buy an NEC 2500a or 2510a?
OKAY, now this leads to my 3rd Question, I DO want to buy an NEC DVD writer, but not really really soon, as of right now i want to try to make my TDK DL. So, is it a better idea to buy a 2500a and flash firmware to that HP Recommended upgrade, or is the 2510a have better firmware already in it than the 2500a HP upgrade?
Thanx very very much, I’m so new to NEC drives and i’m very excited about the NEC DL capabilities.
Sorry if i write way too much, but i don’t think i’d be able to explain myself the way i want to without all of the included details.
