I have just bought a new NEC ND-2500A External DVD burner with a ver1.6 bios. I would like to upgrade it to have Dual Layer capability. I've tried running Herrie's flasher utility for 107v2b5. It detects the drive and begins the flashing process, but soon aborts saying Error.
I've had a look around, but can't see any other way of flashing an external drive. Has anyone else had any success upgrading the USB2 version of this drive ?

nefis, herrie's flash won't work with external devices, only way is to put the drive internal and do the flashing...

worked fine for me. I put it in a third party usb/firewire case and succesfully flashed it with herries windows flasher of 1.07v2b5DL and it works great. I was hesitant at first when I was thinking of getting the drive, but it worked without a hitch for me.
@nefis
did u load on any of the usb utilities that may have come with the cd for the enclosure? When I tried the utilities I got all sorts of problems, so if u have it on, that may be causing ur problems. Additionally, try flashing it from a usb1 port if u have any...
Let's know how it goes.

1.One more thing.. DVdInfo Pro(2.56) often reads errors at the end of the +RW, but NEro(6.3.0.3) can't find any with file system & surface trests!!(on Nec ND2500A 1.07). Maybe such things happen when it can't read blank space after multisession?
2.Also DVdInfo Pro slides down the speed line at the end of Speed test, Nero Knows nothing 'bout such problems again!!
I always do Verification of written data and it shows not even a ghost of problems...
All tests were made on the same DVD+Rw disc, burned wirh Nero with 2.4 speed with ISO multisession.
Tests made with DVDInfo Pro I made even without my Subwoofer :)
Someone had such problems, anything wht the..happens..Soft's disharmony, my dvd recorder,,.. or Herry :)

Officially nec has only support for DVD+R DL booktype (DVD-ROM) not for +R/+RW. If you need booktype setting for +R/+RW only way would be to use hacked firmware

Just Get the DVD Info Pro Programm and you'll get such options as i but I flashed my NEC ND 2500a v 1.06 to 1.07 maybe you 'll have to flash yours ...
