Q1: Is AOpen's DRW8800AAN same hardware as NEC2500A ?
Viewed from AOpen's webpage, both drives look like twin in
appearance and specification.
Q2: If so, can DRW8800AAN be flashed to hacked NEC2500A->2510A
Q3: If so again, what is the best BIOS ? the hacked 2500A BIOS or
HP520n one ? I mean considering SL and DL DVD+R/DVD+RW
Bitsetting capability, wide 4X DVD5 DVD-R compatibility, without
panel LED flashing and tray open problem.
Mainly I have been using slower Pioneer A04 burner and excellent
LiteOn 166S reader to backup DVD movie titles, over 200 more
done. Most titles are backup by using two DVD5 -R media. You know
the splitting procedure takes skill and much time. Recently, I'm
considering to upgrade my DVD burning. The burner options are first
the cheapest AOpen one, genuine NEC 2500A, or waiting NEC2510A,
or the promising Pioneer A08 ? All the local media sellers here
suggest not using BenQ, Philips, and LiteOn drive and +R media for
Thanks in advance for your kind responding.
